TORONTO, July 20, 2016 /CNW/ -- eSSENTIAL Accessibility and Omni Hotels & Resorts have partnered to launch the eSSENTIAL Accessibility app, an exciting accessibility initiative for guests with disabilities. The eSSENTIAL Accessibility app provides keyboard and mouse replacement tools that help individuals with physical, reading and age-related disabilities navigate the web. Through the app's motion technology and voice activated controls, guests can make reservations, research destinations and take advantage of offers.
"Omni Hotels & Resorts provides each guest with a total departure from the everyday by pairing thoughtful details with unparalleled service," says Simon Dermer, Managing Director of eSSENTIAL Accessibility. "Our app will allow them to do just that online. By adopting our solution, they are now a member of our coalition of purpose driven, disability-friendly organizations."
Guests who click on the app icon are redirected to a dedicated Omni landing page where they can download the app, but also learn about everything Omni has to offer. For more information on the initiative, visit the eSSENTIAL Accessibility page here.
