University of California, Merced Launches AudioEye's Accessibility Technology

UC Merced Website Sets the Stage for Expansion in University of California System and Nationwide

TUCSON, AZ and MERCED, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2014) - AudioEye®, Inc. (OTCQB: AEYE) ("AudioEye") ("the Company"), creator of the Audio Internet® patented audio browsing and automated publishing technology platform, today announced that the Company has launched its accessibility technology solution for the University of California, Merced (UC Merced). The solution provides compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA") requirements and expands the reach and convenience of UC Merced websites.

The University of California system includes ten UC campuses that offer undergraduate and graduate education. The campuses include UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Irvine, UCLA, UC Merced, UC Riverside, UC San Diego, UC San Francisco, UC Santa Barbara and UC Santa Cruz. UC Merced is the first university in the UC system to adopt AudioEye's technology and to do so campus-wide. AudioEye is currently targeting over 10,000 college, university and trade school websites through a strategic marketing campaign.

"With UC Merced as a leading example, we have established a reference account in the state-operated university systems marketplace -- ten in California and over ten thousand throughout the U.S.," stated Nathaniel Bradley, Chief Executive Officer of AudioEye, Inc. "This proves out our model and provides a straightforward and easily addressable market for our technology and company expansion."

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act is among a set of laws that have been improved and now require the websites of all colleges, universities and schools to be accessible to individuals with disabilities. AudioEye is the only scalable market solution available that can both identify and remediate web content that is currently out of compliance with Section 508.
