A2i helps you reach a wider audience by making your information accessible to people who are blind, visually-impaired or cannot read printed text.
We provide "Access 2 information". We transcribe text to alternative accessible formats, so visually impaired people have equal access to information. We produce information in Braille, Audio, Large Print, E-text and Easy Read.
Our aims are to:
- make information accessible for people with visual impairments
- help businesses meet their legal requirements
- provide a fast turnaround
- offer a friendly and professional service.
Susie Fisher started the company in 1999 from a bedroom! Now a thriving small business with a dedicated team, Susie tells us A2i's story.
“I founded A2i back in 1999 when I worked in a university's disability department and discovered it was impossible to get accessible formats transcribed for our visually impaired students in under two months. I felt this was a huge equality problem, but one I could do something about – so I set up A2i. With the help of my team, A2i is now a leading alternative formats provider in the UK, and offers a speedy and reliable transcription service for a whole range of companies, individuals and organisations who want to be able to reach their blind, visually impaired and print-disabled audiences…”.
