You may have noticed an exciting new feature on DRA’s website. We have added the Recite Me web accessibility and language toolbar to make our site accessible and inclusive for as many people as possible.
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. It helps people with disabilities, 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 people 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 the blue “Customise me” button (Recite Me is a company based in the United Kingdom, so you’ll occasionally notice British spellings of certain words). This button now appears near the upper right hand corner on every page of our website, just to the left of the Donate button.
After you click on the blue “Customise me” button, the Recite Me toolbar opens and displays a range of different options for customizing how the website looks and how you can access the content.
How does Recite Me help me access this website?
Recite Me helps people to access our website to do the things they need to do, like find information about how to access our service by making complaints, access publications and read news.
The Recite Me toolbar has a unique range of functions. You can use it to:
- Have the text on our website read aloud (including PDFs)
- Download the text as an MP3 file to play it where and when it suits you
- Change font sizes and colors
- Customize background color
- Translate text into more than 100 different languages
- Access a fully integrated dictionary and thesaurus
You can find out more about how Recite Me works from the Recite Me user guide.
