Our Brief

The Center for Independence provides resources and services that promote empowerment, inclusion, and wellness of all persons with disabilities. To work towards this, CFI works one-on-one with individuals to provide independent living skills training on various topics such as budgeting, organizational & communication skills, learning how to get around the community independently, and more.

To ensure their online information and services were accessible, inclusive, and customizable for everyone, they sought a solution that would allow all web users to access the information and services offered through their website without barriers.

Our Solution

The Center for Independence implemented Recite Me online accessibility and language support tools. The Recite Me assistive toolbar enables all website visitors, regardless of their differing abilities or language needs, to customize the CFI-WA.org website in a way that works best for them. Recite Me assistive technology includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customizable styling options, and an on-demand live transition feature that boasts over 100 languages including 65 text-to-speech and styling options.
