Our mission: To eliminate accessibility limitations from digital content
A large portion of the planet’s population suffers from some form of disability that limits their ability to browse and interact with websites, web-based applications and other forms of content. A few examples are visual impairments and blindness, hearing loss, neurological disorders that may impact sight, hearing, touch or motor skills and physical handicaps. Whether it be a government body, a non-for profit or a commercial entity, virtually all organizations wish (or might be required by law) to allow such disabled persons to make use of and enjoy their content, whether it be on their websites or in their brochures, presentations, whitepapers or other documents. Accessibility, the area of information technology that involves itself with solving this quandary, sprang from these desires and needs, and is what we concern ourselves with Make-Sense.
Make-Sense Inc., established in January 2016, is an international technology company proud to introduce a new, unique web accessibility solution platform. Our mission is to bring a social impact by granting equal online opportunity to any and all people around the world, including those with disabilities. David Adi, Make-Sense CEO, has a hearing disability which not only allots him with a first-hand understanding of the disconnect regarding digital accessibility, but fueled his motivation in creating the Make-Sense accessibility solution. His vision was to create a complete platform that would give companies the tools needed to comply to all expending standards and regulations worldwide.
In May 2016, Make-Sense started a relationship with the Israeli government focusing on various accessibility projects. Not long after, Make-Sense expanded operations and began their marketing and sales initiatives in the US, Europe, Australia, and Africa by October 2016.
Make-Sense employees quickly adopted Mr. David Adi’s contagious passion for digital accessibility. Our team of 16 is always encouraging customer feedback and making improvements accordingly to meet our customer base needs. For example, our solution is built as a client side tool. The benefits include: ensures website speed and performance will never be effected, allows end users to use our accessibility tools, and ensures 100% company privacy and security. In fact, our product is the only web accessibility solution in the world with ISO 27001 Information Security Certification.

As mentioned, the subject of Accessibility has captured the minds of many. To assist on the matter, specifically, on the matter of web-accessibility, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has put forth a set of accessibility standards named the “Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0”, which, amongst others, define three levels of web-site accessibility readiness, A, AA and AAA, where AAA is the highest level, although AA is already quite encompassing. Much has been done academically as well, but commercial accessibility solutions are lacking. To date, nearly all commercially available web-accessibility solutions are either too narrow or too costly and complex.
At Make-Sense, we happy to have broken through the boundaries set by existing products, creating accessibility solutions that are simultaneously easy to install, affordable for businesses and organizations, and offer functionality that meets WCAG 2.0 Standards! Further yet, our wholehearted commitment to bettering the lives of disabled persons has led us to be the first to apply accessibility know-how (which we have a great deal of) to other types of content and documents.
