Leading accessibility software company Recite Me is showcasing its new inclusive learning software product ‘Include Me’ at the Education Show in Birmingham, 20 – 22 March 2014.

Include Me is an exciting new software solution that helps create an inclusive learning environment. Providing a range of features that support learners with dyslexia, visual impairments and other communications needs, Include Me works in the classroom, library or at home.

The software makes digital content like websites, desktop applications and documents accessible to all learners at every stage of their education. Using up-to-the minute technology Include Me provides innovative solutions such as colour overlays for learners with dyslexia, and the phonetic speller is a great tool for children or young adults with language or reading difficulties.

  • 1 in 5 pupils has a special educational need (SEN).
  • 30.6% of state-funded primary school children at School Action Plus have speech, language & communications needs.
  • 26.9 % of pupils with SEN are in state-funded secondary schools.
  • 10-15% of all people have dyslexia.
  • Over 1 million 5-18 year olds have English as a second language.

Ross Linnett, founder and CEO of Recite Me will be joined by Laura Cook, Managing Director of the Learning Support Centre for a seminar at the Education Show on ‘inclusive learning in the classroom, library or at home’ on Thursday 20 March, 11.00 – 11.45 am in the Technology in Education theatre. Include Me will be demonstrated during the seminar.

Ross Linnett, CEO of Recite Me said:

“My dyslexia wasn’t diagnosed until after I had completed my university education. Include Me is a software solution that makes today’s classrooms more inclusive from day one.

“With all the advances in Cloud-computing no learner needs to be left behind, technology has the power to transform our education system.

“Include Me makes digital content accessible to everyone from those 15% of the population with dyslexia to people with English as a second language.”

Laura Cook, Managing Director of the Learning Support Centre said:

“Many learners would not be disabled if resources were more accessible. For some dyslexic learners having text on a yellow background with green text will mean the difference in being able to read what is in front of them or not.

“One of my colleagues recently changed the background colour on a mature student’s computer, the student burst into tears because she was able to read the written text without it moving for the first time.”
