Ally Toolbar

The Ally Toolbar, located at the bottom left side of this screen, provides a fully customizable experience users can tailor to their individual needs—regardless of their device type, language preference, or preferred method of access.

The Ally Toolbar benefits all site visitors, but in particular, aging populations and individuals who have vision, motor and/or intellectual (cognitive) disabilities, those who are color blind, dyslexic, learning to read, learning a second language, or who may prefer listening instead of reading.
