Voicepad integration with IDX
Voicepad, just like IDX Broker, is a company that is part of Elm Street Technology.
Voicepad offers lead generation & telecom solutions for real estate businesses.
Some of the services Voicepad sells include an on-demand receptionist that can route calls and a curbside lead generation system where someone can call or text the number listed on the homes' sign and Voicepad sends them the details of the property and creates a lead for you.
Another service that VoicePad offers is voice narration in IDX Broker details pages. This means that with a click of a button, you can hear a description of the property's main features in the languages that you choose.
Here you can see an example of a site that has this service on all of their details pages:
Realty Candy offers this integration on our Seattle details page.
You can get access to this details page by making Realty Candy your developer partner and going to IDXAddons. Voice pad will give you an API key that you need to enter in our "API Keys" section.

Why Should I Use Voicepad?
Voicepad is a useful addition that can help you with ADA compliance. ADA refers to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design.
These standards were published in 2010 and state that all information technology must be accessible to people with disabilities as well.
There are certain things that you can do to be compliant, and one of them can be adding Voicepad. This will help people with visual or reading impairments. Instead of having to read through the entire details, they can listen to a summary of the property in the languages available.
We think this is an easy way to be inclusive, but it's also useful for people that don't want to read through paragraphs and paragraphs of information. You're simplifying the information retrieval process for all of your leads.
