Our Brief

In the UK alone, it is estimated that over 12 million people have print impairments such as dyslexia, reading issues, and visual impairments while over 8 million people speak English as a second language. With this in mind, Lifeways wanted to provide an inclusive support network online and remove barriers that prevent people from interacting, engaging, and contributing equally.

Our Solution

To make Lifeways online presence as inclusive as possible, they launched their all-new website with accessibility and language support tool, Recite Me.

Recite Me enables website visitors to view, navigate and customise the Lifeways website in ways to suit their individual needs.

This online support toolbar offers text-to-speech capabilities, reading support aids for people with learning difficulties and styling options such as font types, colour themes, text size changes, and a translation tool amongst many other features.

Client Testimonial

"It is important that we make access to our services and finding information as easy as possible for all our website users and making the Recite Me tool available for users with accessibility issues, ensures that everyone will now be able to enjoy the same experience. "
