How Nonprofit Case Management Software Helps IN-SIGHT Boost Accessibility For Visually Impaired Staff and Participants
In light of Disability Pride Month, we’re highlighting a nonprofit that is making strides in increasing accessibility for its visually-impaired and blind workers and clients.
IN-SIGHT is a Rhode Island nonprofit with a mission to inspire confidence and build skills in people who are visually impaired and blind. Today, it serves more than 1,000 community members—from toddlers to elderly adults—by offering a wide variety of quality programs and services.
Before upgrading its nonprofit case management software, most of IN-SIGHT’S information was on paper and entered manually. This created a number of challenges and inefficiencies for staff and often prevented the organization from employing blind or visually-impaired workers. That changed when it adopted Apricot.
Apricot’s compatibility with accessibility platforms empowers all
In addition to improving efficiencies and productivity, Apricot case management software is compatible with accessibility platforms such as screen readers and voiceover programs, which provides more opportunities for IN-SIGHT to hire individuals with visual disabilities. In fact, IN-SIGHT’s staff members who are blind or visually impaired can use Apricot to do the exact same things their sighted colleagues do, such as read and write case notes, complete forms, and run reports. Every single part of the workflow is accessible to them, allowing them to be just as productive and have just as much access to information as everybody else.
“IN-SIGHT is committed to ensuring that everything works with people with visual disabilities. The product has always remained accessible and that’s a priority for us. The fact that Apricot is compatible with the screen readers and voiceovers has been a huge plus for us.”
—Christopher Butler, Executive Director of IN-SIGHT
And because Apricot prioritizes accessibility for IN-SIGHT’s blind and visually impaired employees, executive director Christopher Butler is confident that his clients can also use Apricot and access features like digital intake forms.
Both Apricot and IN-SIGHT are creating innovative ways to be more and more accessible to those living with disabilities. This ongoing commitment to compatibility has solidified IN-SIGHT’s confidence that Apricot will continue to deliver the best results for their agency and their clients now and in the future.
