Recite Me web accessibility and language toolbar

Recite Me is an 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 the button you see at the bottom of your screen. 

Click on the button you see at the bottom of your screen that says "Recite Me"

This bar will stay at the bottom of the screen whilst you scroll through each page. There are a couple of exceptions..

  • On our News articles, there is a link that says "Enable Recite Me accessibility tools".
  • In some browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer), the bar will be at the bottom of the page automatically.

 

After you click on the button, the Recite Me toolbar opens at the top of your screen, displaying a range of different options for customising how the website looks and how you can access the content.  

The Recite Me toolbar comes up at the top of the page

This is available throughout our website, and works on both desktop and mobile devices. 

  

How does Recite Me help me access this website? 

Recite Me helps visitors to access our website to do the things they need to do by supporting a range of accessibility needs.  

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 colours 

  • Customise background colour 

  • 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

 

Can I get support with Recite Me?
