WebMD Careers Site Adopts AudioEye's Web A11y Management Platform™

AudioEye Technology Delivers Greater Inclusion and Access to WebMD Jobs Postings

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwired - Mar 16, 2015) - AudioEye, Inc. (OTCQB: AEYE) ("AudioEye"), creator of patented audio browsing and automated publishing and accessibility technology platforms, today announced that the WebMD careers website has adopted its Web A11y Management Platform. The site is located at https://careers-webmd.icims.com.

"At WebMD, one of our most important objectives is to treat everyone with respect," stated Kathleen Tourjee, WebMD's Vice President of Human Resources. "Upholding the intent and spirit of this and our other values in support of our vision and mission begins when someone first shows an interest in joining our team. With this in mind, we have enhanced our hiring process by implementing the AudioEye technology platform on our WebMD Careers site."

"This new capability makes our employment application accessible to all job seekers, including individuals with visual, auditory, physical speech, cognitive and neurological disabilities. AudioEye's software service layers over our employment application and includes a full suite of tools -- from a best-in-class text-to-speech engine and image hue control, to speech control and translation services."

"With the new functionality on our site, a diverse population can more easily apply to join the WebMD team," continued Tourjee. "Through the implementation of this technology, WebMD job applicants requiring assistance will no longer have to wait for a return call or email. This assistive technology improves the mobility, usability and accessibility of WebMD's Internet-based employment application process for all interested parties. We are proud that WebMD is the first company to leverage this innovation for the recruitment process and especially pleased to launch it in 2015, which is the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). As evidenced by the adoption of AudioEye's technology platform, WebMD will continue to further its commitment to recruit, engage and retain a diverse and talented workforce."

"The natural progression of our technology is that we eventually address accessibility on the highest-ranking websites and online mobile sites," stated Nathaniel Bradley, Chief Executive Officer of AudioEye, Inc. "We are proud to work closely with WebMD, which is the leading provider of health information services for consumers, physicians, healthcare professionals, employers and health plans, to perfect its online inclusion and accessibility for job postings."
