Make-Sense was established to help organizations implement digital accessibility in a way that is compliant with laws and guidelines while mitigating the significant complexity and high costs typically involved.
In the past three decades, governments around the world have passed laws that focus on making electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities. Some of these regulations are Section 508 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in the United States and the European Union Directive on the Accessibility of Websites and Mobile Applications (based on regulation EN 301 549), which goes into effect in September 2018. These acts and regulations seek to make the Internet accessible, as intended, to the 1.3 billion people worldwide who are impacted by a disability or limitation that affects how they experience digital content and media.
Founded in Israel in 2016 by David Adi, Make-Sense provides companies and organizations with a streamlined, easy-to-use platform equipped with the tools to make digital content accessible and compliant. Adi, who serves as the CEO of Make-Sense, was inspired by his own hearing disability, which limits his ability to experience certain types of digital content.
Make-Sense’s solutions reduce the cost and complexity associated with digital accessibility by facilitating quick compliance with Section 508, ADA, AACT, and EN 301 549 regulations and avoiding unnecessary violations. Its tool, the A-WEB Digital Accessibility Platform, scans static and dynamic content continuously to provide comprehensive accessibility. Make-Sense supplements that by identifying violations and automatically fixing thesein real time, as well as maintaining and improving SEO rankings and educating, guiding, and supporting development teams.
Make-Sense is driven by a desire to make the internet more accessible to all who use it and want to use it.
