Our Brief

Cranfield University has always understood the need to make its communications accessible. When the university re-launched its website in 2016 they began looking for a high-quality web accessibility solution that complies with the latest web accessibility standards. We showed Cranfield University the range of features that the Recite Me toolbar has and explained how it makes any website more accessible for a wider audience, and the university decided it was the perfect fit.

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

Our Solution

The Recite Me toolbar was introduced to the new Cranfield University website. It works by clicking on an icon in the top right hand corner of website – when you scroll over the icon it shows scroll-over text that says ‘Accessibility tools’. The Recite Me toolbar lets anyone view the website into a format that is fully accessible for them. It lets people change elements such as the font size, plus the font colour and background colour contrast, as well as giving the option to have the text read out aloud. It also gives people the option to translate any bit of written web content into over 100 different languages.

Client Testimonial

"We wanted to make sure the content on our website was accessible to as many people as possible. Recite Me provides us with a translation service as well as an accessibility solution, which is very important for us because it means that our international audiences can easily access our web content. There are so many different features on the Recite Me toolbar that it covers everything from an accessibility and language perspective. The offer was very appealing and the service was comprehensive, and the team at Recite Me are very proud and passionate about the Recite Me web accessibility software. They have been great to work with. "
