TUCSON, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 09/03/13 -- AudioEye®, Inc. (OTCQB: AEYE), creator of the Audio Internet patented audio browsing and automated publishing technology platform, today announced that the Company has contracted to activate AudioEye's Audio Internet technology within the websites and campuses of the Vail School District. A total of twelve campus websites and one district-wide website will adopt the Audio Internet feature, which will soon be available to the almost 12,000 students enrolled in grades K-12, their families, faculties and the Vail community located in Southern Arizona.
In 2011, AudioEye implemented its technology, in collaboration with master's degree students and faculty, at the University of Arizona's Eller Management Information Systems ("MIS") College. The AudioEye solution is fully compliant with the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act and unlocks interactive, mobile and voice features throughout the University campus. Through the partnership with Vail School District, these features will now be made available to K-12 campuses and their websites.
Vail School District is recognized for its pioneering work in leading education solution technologies. Its "Beyond Textbooks" initiative has been so successful that 81 other school districts and charter schools in the State of Arizona have licensed content through that process. In addition to adopting and perfecting the Audio Internet technology, Vail will also have the ability to distribute it to other school districts and educational institutions in Arizona under this agreement. AudioEye will retain the ability to market the technology within the other 49 states and Puerto Rico through the joint venture partnership arrangement.
Audio Internet represents a low-cost solution for compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act and enables a variety of mobile and interactive user experiences.
"We are proud to partner with a local business that is a nationally recognized leader and has helped open the web to all users across the visual spectrum," commented Calvin Baker, Superintendent of the Vail School District.
"Our focus on educational solutions is steadfast," observed Nathaniel T. Bradley, Chief Executive Officer of AudioEye, Inc. "The positive impact that our audio-based platform has on the mobility of the learning process, combined with its convenience and security, have resulted in a solution that is ideal for multi-campus deployment. Implementation of the Audio Internet platform will represent another 'industry first' for Vail School District. Our technology adds significant value to the educational process, allows K-12 campuses throughout the nation to comply with federal mandates, and provides an equally accessible experience to all users."
