Mk Dons provides accessible COVID-19 information to fans
During these uncertain times, it is vital that vital information is accessible to all. Mk Dons has created a fully accessible COVID-19 support hub through the support of the Recite Me accessibility pledge.
Recite Me Founder and CEO Ross Linnett pledged that the company would support any business in making their online coronavirus information more inclusive, at no cost.
Fans of all ages and regardless of their differing abilities or if they speak English as a second language need to be able to access important information online regarding their football club and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Antoni Fruncillo, Media Manager at MK Dons commented, “At MK Dons we believe very strongly that football is for everyone and therefore, we are delighted to have been able to link up with Recite Me and ensure that important information from the Football Club can be accessed and understood by all, particularly during this difficult and unsettling time.”
Evidence shows that at least one in five people have some kind of disability, long-term health condition, or impairment, which means they often have online access issues.
This makes it essential to consider each individual's needs and ensure websites and other digital platforms are accessible to them.
The Recite Me accessibility and language support toolbar will provide visitors to the MK Dons COVID-19 information page a wide range of features that include text to speech functionality, fully customisable styling features, reading aids, and a translation tool with over 100 languages, including 35 text to speech voices.
Ross Linnett, Recite Me CEO and Founder said: “During these uncertain times Recite Me is here to support businesses across the world to create online information related to Coronavirus that is accessible and inclusive for everyone.
“So, this is our pledge to help everyone in a time of need by helping any business make key information online, free of charge.
“If you think your sporting organisation needs help to make your Coronavirus related online information accessible and inclusive to all your staff and customers, please contact us now.”
