North Queensland Women’s Legal Service (NQWLS) now provides Recite Me accessibility and language tools online to support all when reading and understanding content on their website. 

As a not-for-profit organisation with 25 years of experience in empowering women by providing free, accessible and high-quality legal services. NQWLS wanted to continue its success by ensuring its online platform was accessible to all. 

Proudly supporting more than 125,000 legal services to the women of North and Far North Queensland, NQWLS is dedicated to addressing issues of injustice and inequity faced by women.

Visitors to the NQWLS website can now choose from a selection of assistive tools to customise their digital experience in a way that works best for them, regardless of disability, learning difficulty, visual impairment, cognitive or neurological disorder or language barriers.

Tegan Hicks, Community Engagement Coordinator commented,  “Knowledge is power and our aim is to give as many people in the community the opportunity to access the knowledge.”

The tools on the NQWLS website allow users to utilise screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customisable styling options, and an on-demand live translation feature capable of interpreting over 100 languages, including text-to-speech. You try out these tools by selecting ‘Speak or Translate’ in the bottom right of the NQWLS website.
