Posted on

New accessibility features make IHM’s award-winning content available to all that are vision impaired, vision handicapped, and dyslexia challenged. Innovative Text To Speech AI tool blazes a trail for all publishers


Clinton, NJ (February 15, 2022) – As part of its continued mission to connect the global healthcare community with clinically relevant information and education that improves patient care and outcomes, International Healthcare Media (IHM) announced the launch of its highly anticipated  ADA-compliant websites for its entire portfolio, including Ophthalmology 360®, Rare Disease 360™, and related microsites. These features enhance an already best-in-class digital media company by making content accessible to all, including the vision impaired and handicapped . What’s more, in characteristic fashion, IHM accessibility criteria extend far beyond ADA compliance standards. Helpful tools include contrast, highlight links, larger text size, text spacing, pause animation, dyslexia-friendly enhancements, line height, text align, and a Text-To-Speech feature.

After the relaunch of IHM’s  websites, the additional technological investments come as a continued effort to create a state-of-the-art experience for all users around the world.


Chris Ciraulo, President, CEO & Group Publisher said, “International Healthcare Media is thrilled to provide such important features to all of our followers, connections, users, viewers, listeners, and readers. We are fully dedicated to our mission to make our content available to ALL users. This is at the heart of what we strive to accomplish each and every day. As many know, IHM is the force behind our tagline – All Content Should Be This Good® – We are most excited about the Text-To-Speech feature, which allows users to listen to any article. With the click of a button, an artificial intelligence voice reads to the visually impaired and others who may be reading-impaired. We owe our technology team a huge debt of gratitude for providing us with capabilities that enhance our mission of improving the eyesight of patients around the globe.”

Matthew Marano, MD, IHM’s  Chief Medical Editor stated, “I am beyond proud to be associated with a pioneering organization that is at the forefront of all it does.” The list of impressive accomplishments, include:

  • Multiple Folio Awards over the last four years
  • A plethora of third-party media partnerships and endorsements
  • An editorial advisory board that includes key opinion leaders and high-level clinical authorities
  • A dominating social media presence
  • Savvy video production capabilities

“And now,” Dr. Marano continued, “added to all this, the new ADA features solidify Ophthalmology 360® and Rare Disease 360™ as stellar digital brands. I have yet to come across a better resource for clinical education tools, patient advocacy and industry news in my 40+ years of practicing medicine. If you are not bookmarking www.ophthalmology360.com and www.medjournal360.com or following IHM brands on all its social channels, you are missing out on a quality learning and practice enhancement opportunity.”
