Enhance Accessibility At Your Workplace With Aira

The Aira Employer Network is a collection of organizations that have purchased Aira Access for use on their premises by employees, customers, and guests who are blind or have low vision.

With 10 million people who are blind or low vision in the US, and another 75,000 being added each year, delivering access to visual information should be a top concern for every employer. Aira’s unique service provides instant access to visual information for blind and low vision employees, enhancing productivity and building an accommodating environment for your workplace.

How It Works

Aira Access enables third party organizations, such as corporations, to provide free access to Aira's services. Organizations use Aira Access to meet ADA requirements, to be a leader in their category, and to better serve and engage the blind or low vision community.

We'll work with you to identify the best Aira Access option for your business to enhance experiences for your blind and low vision employees. We will then set up the app to reflect your chosen Aira Access option - whether it's adding a business profile or a new "promotions" option. We'll work with you to define the parameters for using your chosen option, build it into the app, and help communicate it.
