Accessibility

Just Helping Children is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, an essential aspect in our commitment to inclusion. Having Recite Me on our website provides a set of easy to use tools that improve accessibility and enhance the website experience. It was quick and easy to implement, and we have immediately seen visitors to our site using the toolbar.

We are constantly looking at ways we can use technology to be an inclusive organisation, Recite Me will provide more options on our website and will make the content completely customisable in a way they need it to work for them

Recite Me web accessibility and language toolbar

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.

After you click on the 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.
