Nearly one in five people have some form of physical, visual, auditory, cognitive, or neurological disabilities that could affect their ability to access information online the same way as other people. They may struggle with:

  • Focusing on relevant sections of text
  • The font, text size, or spacing of the text
  • Poor colour contrasts between background and foreground
  • Distractions presented by graphics and image carousels
  • Web copy that’s not in their first language

With this in mind the contractor have introduced ReciteMe, which is a software that make information on their intranet and website accessible to all.

How it works:

With the assistive software installed on the website and intranet, these access barriers can be broken down. Users can make single or multiple adjustments to accommodate a broad range of customisation needs, such as:

  • Changing font size, type, and colour
  • Altering background and foreground contrasts
  • Accessing content as an audio file
  • Choosing from 100 different on-screen languages and 35 text-to-speech languages
  • Utilising the screen mask, dictionary, and built-in thesaurus
  • Stripping away graphics and page clutter by selecting the ‘text only’ mode.
