The trouble with only using something like this, and not contacting the company with the page in question is, that just like if you do the keystroke to use the overlay, this add-on won't let the owner of the page and paying for the overlay, that we are, or aren't using it or even blocking it.
So we aren't doing our part to get rid of the problem.

Hi, again, Tony. Here is a review of

Web accessibility overlays don't work. Wave them all bye-bye in one easy step, with AccessiByeBye!
If you use a screen reader and have been prompted to press a hotkey to turn on some website's screen reader mode, you've likely encountered the category of website add-ons known as accessibility overlays. These include services like AccessiBe, EqualWeb, MaxAccess, and UserWay.
We know that while these overlays are supposed to make websites more accessible, they're actually annoying and often counter-productive. That's why we made AccessiByeBye, a simple browser extension that blocks these overlays.
Just install AccessiByeBye into your browser, and those pesky overlays won't bother you again. There's no catch. We don't collect your web browsing habits or other personal information, and the AccessiByeBye extension won't slow down your browser or computer. If you ever decide you do want one of those overlays, it's easy to turn off the extension at any time.
At Pneuma Solutions, we're all in favor of any tools that truly improve accessibility. So if any of the accessibility overlays that we block actually become useful to the people that they claim to serve, then we'll remove those blocks. But until then, we believe that the spread of accessibility overlays is hindering true improvements in website accessibility.
