VFO Expands Again with Acquisition of The Paciello Group

VFO, owners of the Freedom Scientific, Optelec, and AI Squared brands,
is growing in size once again with the acquisition of The Paciello Group.
Founded in 2002, The Paciello Group specializes in accessibility testing
and remediation, especially as it relates to WCAG 2.0 and Section 508,
two standards which guide organizations and government agencies toward
accessibility compliance. VFO had an existing team specializing in
enterprise-class accessibility solutions, though the acquisition will
allow them to put much more of a focus on these areas.
Some of their clients according to their website include AT&T, The
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Google, Hyatt, and Charles Schwab.

In Their Own Words

The Paciello Group is passionately dedicated to helping government
agencies, technology vendors, e-commerce corporations, and
educational institutions make their technology equally accessible to
all people, including those with disabilities. The company offers
professional consulting, technology solutions, and services to
ensure that clients reach all audiences effectively and efficiently
while meeting commercial, governmental and international standards
such as Section 508 and WCAG.

Holy crap. Does anyone else realize that in any other industry, this
would be grounds for a Federal investigation? Is anyone else worried by
the worst screen reader maker acquiring the entire AT industry outside
of Apple and Google? I know I am, considering their track record of
crazy litigation.

deal with if at all possible now if my workplace wants jaws I will use
it but even so.

When I called vfo in the past they seemed quite hostile to my
