FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Fort Wayne, Indiana (January 21, 2014) - GW Micro, Inc. (www.gwmicro.com) is 
proud to announce the Window-Eyes Certification Program.  The Window-Eyes 
Certification Program is a professional certification that enables individuals 
to test their Window-Eyes knowledge and become certified, which will 
demonstrate competency and proficiency in the product.  

Recently, GW Micro announced a partnership with Microsoft to provide users of 
Microsoft Office 2010 or later a free license of Window-Eyes.  “We have had a 
large demand for a certification program for Window-Eyes,” said Jeremy Curry, 
Director of Training for GW Micro.  “With the advent of a no-cost screen reader 
solution and as the assistive technology industry expands, GW Micro is meeting 
demand and growing with the industry.”

The Window-Eyes Certification Program will be immediately recognized by some 
state agencies for people who are blind or visually impaired.  Curry believes 
that private corporations, as well as local, state, and federal government 
agencies will take advantage of the Window-Eyes Certification Program as 
accessibility testing for websites, documents, and other electronic 
communication is becoming a larger part of mainstream culture.  “In many 
government agencies, there are laws that dictate digital content must be 
accessible, and this is one way that GW Micro can help ensure there are 
knowledgeable individuals certified in Window-Eyes able to provide their 
product expertise to organizations that need it.”  

GW Micro will be expanding their training and certification program later this 
year to continue to meet a strong demand.  For information on Window-Eyes 
available for free for users of Microsoft Office, please visit 
www.windoweyesforoffice.com.  To learn more about the Window-Eyes Certification 
Program, please visit http://www.gwmicro.com/WECertified. 

GW Micro, Inc. (www.gwmicro.com) has been a trusted pioneer in the adaptive 
technology industry since 1990, and continues to lead with innovative, customer 
driven solutions.
