Recite Me is innovative cloud-based software that lets visitors to our website view and use it in the way that works best for them.
We have added the Recite Me web accessibility and language toolbar to our website to make it accessible and inclusive for as many people as possible.
It helps the one in five people in the UK who have a disability, including those with common conditions like sight loss and dyslexia, to access this website in the way that suits them best.
It also meets the needs of the one in ten people in the UK who don’t speak English as their first language, by being able to translate our web content into over 100 different languages.
How do I access the Recite Me toolbar?
You can open the Recite Me language and accessibility toolbar by clicking on ‘Accessibility Tools.’ This ‘Accessibility Tools’ now appears in the footer on every page of our website.
After you click on the ‘Accessibility Tools’ link the Recite Me toolbar opens and displays a range of different options for customising how the website looks and how you can access the content.
