Pony Power Therapies Enhances the Well-Being of Children and Adults with Online Accessibility Tools
Pony Power Therapies now provide online assistive technology to support a diverse range of adults and children to book therapeutic horse-riding lessons online.
Pony Power Therapies is a non-profit organisation in the Ramapo Mountains in Mahwah, NJ, USA, that uses horses and other farm animals to enhance the physical, social, and emotional well-being of those with developmental difficulties, physical disabilities, learning difficulties, and mental health issues.
61 million adults in the US live with a disability (26%) that may prevent access to online resources and services. To continue to enhance the lives of those who face accessibility barriers, Pony Power Therapies believed it was essential to continue to extend their values to the digital world.
With the introduction of Recite Me assistive technology on the Pony Power Therapies website, those who encounter barriers are able to customise their experience to suit their own specific needs.
Kerry Barrett, Development Director at Pony Power Therapies "We are so happy to be able to offer the Recite Me assistive toolbar on our website. Inclusivity and accessibility are at the core of our mission, as we are a non-profit organization that uses horses and an accessible farm to serve anyone who needs extra support. It makes sense to extend those same values to our website."
The Recite Me innovative toolbar has transferable features such as translation, read-aloud, and styling assistance. This includes adjustments to colour font type and size.
