iZotope, Inc. has announced the scheduled release of product updates to support accessibility software for the visually impaired. Available for download by the end of Q1 2010, the updates will significantly expand the information made available to accessibility software interfacing with their programs. This endeavor is closely related to iZotope's 2010 Education Initiate. The Initiative will support music education by donating software to classrooms around the world. iZotope has made supporting the community a top priority for the upcoming year. "iZotope software has become an industry standard, and that means it's time to commit to universal access," says CTO Jeremy Todd. "We plan to do this with the help of the visually impaired community itself, so we invite users of screen readers to contact us for more information or to get involved." The forthcoming product updates will allow commonly used screen reader programs to work with iZotope's software on both Mac and PC platforms. iZotope also noted that this support is a long term commitment and will be incorporated into all subsequent releases of products and updates. Users interested in testing the accessibility updates may contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Advance copies of the updates will be available upon request.
