DisabledGo.com Unveils New Web Accessibility Features

DisabledGo the UK’s leading provider of venue and visitor attraction access information for well over 120,000 places has added cutting-edge accessibility software to it’s website.

Around 11 million people in the UK, or 1 in 5 of the population, have a disability and would benefit from greater customisation of website content whether its changing the font size, colour contrast or having the content read aloud.

Successfully running on DisabledGo.com, Recite Me’s accessibility software allows website visitors to access the website in the way that best works for them. The technology is Cloud-based so it works on any platform and works especially well on mobile devices. They were also able to optimise certain on-site features with the Recite Me accessibility checker.

Barry Stevenson, DisabledGo’s chairman said:

“DisabledGo enables disabled people to plan where they want to go and what they want to do. By adding Recite Me’s accessibility technology to our website, we’re making sure that the access information we provide online is user-friendly and customisable.”

“An additional bonus is the language option, we can offer overseas visitors and people here in the UK with English as a second language our information in the language of their choice, all at the click of a button.”

Ross Linnett, CEO & founder of Recite Me said:

“According to Google, 65% of smartphone users are accessing the Internet everyday and 62% of the population actually owns a smartphone.”

“People are researching products, looking up travel and leisure information and making bookings and purchases on their mobile devices.”

“Smart organisations are optimising their websites for accessibility and accessibility for mobile users must not be overlooked.”

“DisabledGo are leaders in providing independence and choice to disabled people and the Recite Me functionality truly makes their access guides accessible to all.”
