INTOUCH: Global Interest In NZ Accounting Software For The Blind

In what is believed to be world first, New Zealand software company Accomplish has unveiled accounting software specially modified to enable efficient use by the blind and visually impaired.
“We’re told this is the first accounting software in the world that has stood up in user tests by blind people,” said the company’s general manager Grant Hewson.
“Obviously, this is attracting lot of interest from organisations serving the blind and visually impaired, not only in New Zealand, but also in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States.
“It’s really an example of Kiwi ingenuity helping to solve global problem in terms of providing good access to the benefits of modern technology for blind people, as well for the movement impaired.”
Founded in Australia almost 20 years ago, Accomplish is now headquartered in Auckland and serves some 25,000 small to medium business enterprises with accounting software designed specifically for New Zealand, Australian and United Kingdom needs.
Grant says Accomplish is working with the Foundation of the Blind on further enhancements to its software and he has also met with the UK’s Royal National Institute of the Blind and has received interest from the US and other countries.
“We are in the process of seeking ISO accreditation for use by the blind, visually impaired and even movement impaired, and this will certainly expand our global market.”
