Our Brief

As the Capital City College Group grows and the diverse range of students increases they needed to make sure that their organisation was totally inclusive across all their websites. To reduce any barriers accessing content on their websites they wanted to be able to support everyone with accessibility support.

Recite Me toolbar solution. Audio, styling, reading, translation icons.

Our Solution

The Capital City College Group installed the Recite Me assistive technology toolbar on the City and Islington College, Westminster Kingsway College and the College of Haringey websites.

Doing this provides a wide range of accessibility options to suit the needs of its students and website visitors. Working across all devices visitors will be able to access key information barrier-free by changing font type and font size, change the text colour and the background colour, and access a full dictionary, thesaurus, and translation tools, as well as reading text aloud.

This unique combination of features makes Recite Me a great accessibility tool for people with disabilities or for people who speak English as a second language.

Client Testimonial

"As London’s largest college group, working in one of the most diverse cities in the world, we wanted to ensure our mission statement of transforming lives through exceptional education and training was able to be communicated to everyone, regardless of their accessibility requirements. ReciteMe allows us to ensure our websites offer customisation, with advanced accessibility options available for all of our users, without any purchase needed on their behalf. “The software offers such a wide variety of options from changing the language for our students looking to study English, through to amending the font, colours and size of text for those with visual impairments, as well as a tool to read the text aloud. This has meant that we can meet multiple user needs quickly, with a simple code addition to each of our websites. “Applicants, staff and existing students have told us how the language tool enabled them to fully understand complicated information such as fees and entry requirements by reading this in their native language, while those with visual impairments said they loved how the tool gave them different options so they had control over the way the sites looked to best suit their needs. “All in all, ReciteMe has enabled us to be flexible and give our customers the option to change our websites when necessary with no manual input, so they are less prescriptive and support the needs of our individual users.
