helpAccess is a browser extension that lets you adapt the way websites look, feel and function so that you can browse more efficiently and experience a more accessible web, particularly if you have a disability that affects the way you use your computer or consume content online. It works with multiple browsers, takes only a few seconds to download and has features that can benefit virtually anyone, regardless of abilities.
Not at all. helpAccess is an assistive tool that lets you mould how you view and use websites and does not in any way make or allow you to make changes to websites themselves.
The helpAccess extension is free for use by anyone who wants to experience a more accessible web and a better way to browse. Unlike other tools, all features can be enjoyed absolutely free, for life.
Team helpAccess is always on the lookout for opportunities to enhance the tool and give users the best browsing experience possible. The helpAccess extension will carry automatic updates from time to time, always striving to delight you with new and upgraded features.
We may occasionally share general information about anonymous users' browsing patterns and accessibility preferences with website owners so that they can serve you as best as they can. Individual browsing data and personal information are not shared and are maintained confidentially.
Every attempt is made continually to ensure that features work as intended on most or all websites but given the dynamic and diverse nature of websites, this is hard to guarantee.
At the moment, extension support on mobiles is only available for Firefox. We are not sure how many of you would be interested in using it. You can let us know about it here (link to our roadmap where they can upvote).
helpAccess is available on Chrome, Firefox and Safari and enables ease of use with all major screen readers - JAWS, VoiceOver, NVDA and Narrator.
