Our Brief

Basketball Ireland has always been committed to inclusion and is continuously looking at ways to become more accessible in every facet of its organisation. (B.I.) have recently launched a Disability Inclusion Policy for 2020-2024 which will see them implementing this policy to support and develop an inclusive environment for children and adults within our clubs, programmes, coaches, volunteers, and players. To continue and push this inclusion policy forward they wanted to focus on digital accessibility and the ability to enable everyone to access key basketball information on their website easily.

Our Solution

To support everyone visiting the Basketball Ireland website to access information barrier-free they now provide assistive technology. With the support of the Recite Me accessibility and language toolbar the (B.I.) website is now a totally inclusive platform for people with disabilities, learning difficulties, visual impairments, and if people speak English as a second language. 

This innovative accessibility software will help bring people closer to the sport by enabling everyone to read and engage with content in a way that suits their individual needs. 

The Recite Me toolbar provides a number of options to enable full control of the website through a screen reader, fully customizable styling options, reading aids, and a translation tool with over 100 languages, including 65 text-to-speech voices.
