Recite Me is delighted to announce the launch of our cloud-based accessibility tools on the Greater Anglia website, to support web visitors when searching for and booking train tickets online.

Greater Anglia is a train operating group which provides commuters with over 260 trains to 170 stations from London Liverpool Street, Peterborough, Norwich and Great Yarmouth. They aim to prioritise a clean, punctual, and reliable train service that treats customers fairly. 

Greater Anglia aims to consider equality across all practices, ensuring that everyone is appreciated and treated fairly, regardless of age, disability, race or religion. By enabling Recite Me Accessibility Software, Greater Anglia has granted inclusive pathways on its digital platform for all.

James Bonehill, Greater Anglia’s Accessibility and Inclusion Manager commented,

“Accessibility is extremely important to us and we are committed to ensuring that all of our customers can access information and services in a way that best meets their individual needs.

“Therefore, we are incredibly proud to be able to provide Recite Me’s innovative assistive technology across our website.”

The assistive toolbar on Greater Anglia’s website includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customisable styling options, and an on-demand live translation feature that offers over 100 languages, including 65 text-to-speech and styling options.

By adapting accessibility tools on transport websites you are supporting all online, bringing various benefits including the reduction of stress when organising travel. 

Alongside this, accessibility tools have a positive impact on disability employment rates. The International Transport Forum reported that accessible transport options in cities can boost employment rates and income for individuals with disabilities by up to 8% and 3%, respectively. 

It’s amazing how such small changes can have such a positive impact on the bigger picture of accessibility.

At Recite Me we also have our very own Accessibility Software Checker, which you can test on your website to assess your site under a range of accessibility factors.
