Announcement Helperbird for Websites

Helperbirds browser extensions have been a success across Chrome, Edge and Firefox. One question we get through support and our live chat is "Can I add Helperbird to my website or blog".

Well, now you can.

Isn't Helperbird for Website an accessibility widget?

No, when we started development on it, it was our aim to go into that market but in the end, it became clear with our vision of making the web more accessible. Accessibility widgets don't work and over-promise in their current state. They don't make your website compliant with any laws.

Helperbird for websites is different in its approach.

We want to teach you how to fix accessibility issues on your site with our Accessibility checker. Then with our new Helperbird for Websites, we want to give you the best of Helperbird features for your website. So users can change the font, text to speech, translate words, overlays, rulers, cursor sizes, highlight paragraphs and much more. Making it easier to consume pages on your website and making it easier for you to add these features. So our mission with Helperbird for Websites is to give you the tools to make it easier for your users to consume and navigate your website.
