Named after the Greek word for “open,” the purpose of Anikto (ah-NEEK-toh) is to explore and develop barrier-free digital experiences. We do this through client relationships, collaborative deliverables, speaking engagements, publications, in-house training and peer-to-peer advocacy.
Anikto operates under the core principle that truly innovative and highly utile media benefits all users. The company’s leadership represents over a decade of web accessibility experience, with successful implementations in such areas as healthcare, government, IYP search, legal communications and product marketing.
Anikto is more than simply another “Section 508″ consultant, however. Anikto has helped roll out an intranet accessibility plan encompassing 85 countries, as well as serving as consultant for a multimedia intervention program for cancer survivors. Current projects include iPad research for patients with traumatic brain injuries, psychoactive response to video games and nutrition support for urban “food desert” populations.
Anikto publications have been cited or released by the Pentagon Library, the American Law Institute, the American Bar Association, the International Journal of E-Politics, Kent State’s Knowledge Management Program, the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, the E-Access Bulletin and UX Magazine (UPA).
Worldwide presentations include the Royal National Institute of the Blind (London), the Interaction Design Association (Savannah), the Unitech ICT Network (Oslo), the World Future Society (Vancouver), the Society for Technical Communication (Sacramento) and the Universitat Autònoma (Barcelona).
