How A2i started

Susie Fisher started the A2i 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.

With the help of my team, A2i is now a leading alternative formats and transcription service provider in the UK. As an accessible communication specialist, A2i 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…”.

our old and new logos

We are 25 this year!

It’s a big birthday for us this year, having been in business for 25 years. This is a huge achievement for any small business and we are celebrating throughout the year with various events and giveaways. You can already see our new logo at the top of our website and you’ll see a slow transition to the new logo in other locations. We’ve enjoyed working on this brand update – hopefully you can see a modern twist whilst maintaining our recognisable shape!

Lots has happened in the alternative formats sector in 25 years, so we’ll also be sending out some interesting stories in our newsletter about how things have changed and what might be to come.
