The Importance of Web Content Accessibility

Workplace discrimination, age, sex, gender, and web content accessibility are only a few to name. Copia, as one of the leading distributors of workflow enhancements utilising speech technologies in Australia, aims to provide equal opportunity and accessibility to every person regardless of their age, sex, gender, circumstance, and disability. We strongly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone. Thus, we are making our website accessible to everyone.
