Reviewed, a consumer product review website, part of Gannett Co Inc and the USA TODAY NETWORK, has launched a dedicated Accessibility category, focused on providing in-depth product insights for adaptive products, assistive technology, and accessible design for people with disabilities and their caregivers.
This newly expanded section with continuous coverage represents necessary progress for the industry and enables Reviewed to reach a historically underserved audience.
Reviewed’s accessibility coverage aims to take the stress out of product research for consumers with disabilities who often rely on word-of-mouth recommendations and adapt everyday products to fit their specific needs.
Reviewed Accessibility Editor Sarah Kovac, an award-winning author and speaker living with dexterity issues caused by arthrogryposis, will help lead this section. Sarah is a passionate and knowledgeable advocate for accessibility given her personal experience, and this category will also serve as a platform to amplify voices from the disabled community, according to a media release.
“I’m proud to see Reviewed recognizing the need to provide increased coverage around accessibility products, filling a void I and other consumers with disabilities have always felt existed. A good accessibility product can be the difference between independence and relying on others to survive. I’ve lived it, and so have the contributors on my team, which instills a collective passion that drives our coverage and hopefully emboldens members of our community.”— Sarah Kovac
Will Also Include Aging in Place Information
Reviewed’s Accessibility section will also include product recommendations and insights for consumers who are aging in place and those who care for them.
“We’re seeing more brands than ever looking to break into the accessibility category and we expect this year to be full of products aimed at a broad set of consumers with disabilities.Here at Reviewed, we look forward to serving this community with our expanded accessibility coverage and hope it inspires others.”— Reviewed Editor in Chief David Kender
