Recite Me is proud to share the news that Regional Disability Advocacy Service (RDAS) is now providing the Recite Me assistive toolbar on its digital platform.

For over 30 years, RDAS has been advocating for the rights of people with disability across North East Victoria and Southern NSW in Australia. The addition of online assistive technology will enable their advice and assistance to be available to all, regardless of ability, through their website.

Whether you are looking for individual advocacy, NDIS appeals or advice to advocate for yourself, you can do this inclusively through Regional Disability Advocacy Service – which also has a new website! Check it out here.

All users of the RDAS website, regardless of their condition, learning disability, visual impairment, cognitive or neurological disorder, or language barrier, can now personalise their digital experience by selecting from a variety of accessibility features.

Ben Foley, Executive Officer of the Regional Disability Advocacy Service, explained the importance of assistive technology online:

quote“For Regional Disability Advocacy Service (RDAS), it is important that our website clearly articulates who we are, what we do and how we help people with disability.”

“Access and inclusion is a universal human right and something RDAS champions, therefore our website must be as accessible as possible. The Recite Me accessibility toolbar is a cost-effective tool that we would recommend to any business that like RDAS, recognises the valuable contributions of people with disability.” 

The Regional Disability Advocacy Services website offers a range of resources, including customisable styling options, different reading aids, screen reading functionality, and an on-demand live translation facility that can interpret over 100 languages, including text-to-speech.

You can access these tools by clicking the “Accessibility Toolbar” button in the top right corner of the website.

Want to join RDAS in being digitally inclusive? Contact the Recite Me team today and book a demo or request a free scan on your own website to see where you can improve your own WCAG compliance.

Online Accessibility and Inclusion Toolkit

This year we published our Digital Inclusion Toolkit which was developed to help organisations make a real difference to the lives of the millions of people around the world who encounter online barriers. The 40-page document provides practical advice covering the complete landscape of online accessibility.
