Basketball Ireland Provides Accessibility Support Online
To support people with challenges online, Basketball Ireland now provides Recite Me assistive technology to enable all visitors to read and understand content easily.
Providing accessibility and language support on their website removes barriers for people with disabilities, learning difficulties, visual impairments, and if people speak English as a second language.
Basketball Ireland (B.I.) has always been committed to inclusion and is continuously looking at ways to become more accessible in every facet of their organisation.
(B.I.) recently launched its Disability Inclusion Policy which sees them support and develop an inclusive environment for children and adults within their clubs, programmes, coaches, volunteers and players.
To continue to push this inclusion policy forward they have expanded their focus to digital accessibility and the ability to enable everyone to access key basketball information on their website easily.
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 assistive 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 35 text to speech voices.
Sports Inclusion Disability Officer, Paul Carr commented: “Investing in Recite Me has brought the accessibility of our sport for people to the next level. We want to make the experience for the reader from anywhere in the world on the website the best possible and giving our supporters control of how the website looks to them will enable all supporters to easily access the information they want.”
