Supporting National Inclusion Week with Recite Me

Today marks the start of National Inclusion week. A celebratory week that recognises and promotes inclusion in the workplace.

We are proud to share, promote and inspire inclusive practices and culture across the workplace to create a better environment for all. The theme for National Inclusion Week 2020 is ‘Each One, Reach One’.

It is about the opportunity we all have to reach out and connect with someone else, or another organisation, to help them understand the opportunity being inclusive provides.

To support all our website visitors and employees including people with disabilities, learning difficulties, visual impairments or people who speak English as a second language, we’ve been providing Recite Me accessibility software across our digital Landscape.

With Recite Me, we are part of a shared mission to create an inclusive digital world enabling everyone ease of access to our online information and resources. Over the past 12 months together we have seen over 2million people using the toolbar, viewing over 10million pages in a way that best suits their individual needs.

To discover and attract a wider pool of talent, and to unearth great people with unique skill sets, we have ensured our digital landscape is an environment where anyone could come and engage easily. In line with our commitment to lead on inclusion and inspire industry-wide change, we have a barrier-free access to our website for people with a range of accessibility issues, including visual impairments, dyslexia, colour blindness and other forms of neurodiversity, as well as those who speak English as a second language.

When visiting our website people can use our suite of accessibility tools to create a unique user experience. These tools include, text to speech functionality, fully customisable styling features, reading aids and a translation tool with over 100 languages, including 35 text to speech voices and many other features.

Together we can build an inclusive online world. This starts by creating awareness on an individual or organisational level and helping others to understand the opportunities presented by inclusion, we can all make a positive difference.
