Everyone Active Paves the Way to Inclusive Fitness
Everyone Active ensures fitness is available to all with online accessibility and language tools.
In the past month (August), over 30,000 people have used the Recite Me assistive toolbar on the Everyone Active website to read and understand essential fitness information and services.
Entitled the longest-established leisure operator in the UK, Everyone Active manages over 200 leisure centres, aiming to encourage participation in physical activity 5 times a week.
To help achieve their inclusion mission, Everyone Active has removed barriers for those with disabilities, learning difficulties, visual impairments, and those who speak English as a second language.
Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of Everyone Active.
Erin Flower, Group Marketing Manager at Everyone Active commented,
“Our name is something we truly believe in. When we say, ‘Everyone Active’, we really do mean everyone.
Fitness and activity should be open to all and we are dedicated to removing barriers and making it more accessible wherever we can – whether that’s in our centres or on our website. Working with Recite Me to make our website even more accessible was a win-win decision for everyone.”
The Recite Me assistive toolbar on the Everyone Active website includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customisable styling options, and an on-demand live translation feature that boasts over 100 languages including 35 text-to-speech and styling options.
Toolbar data shows that in May 2021, website visitors viewed 52,772 accessible pages on the Everyone Active website. The most used feature of the toolbar is the screen reader, with users using the playback feature to understand content in English, Spanish, and Polish.
