Following the Prime Minister’s latest announcement for a second national lockdown, Recite Me reiterates their pledge to support all businesses in creating an inclusive landing page to enable everyone to read and understand COVID-19 related information.
As we enter a second lockdown internet usage will once again spike as we all rely on online communication for everyday tasks. Studies show that around one-in-five people have some form of disability, long-term health condition, or situational impairment, which can make accessing online information challenging.
Therefore, when information is vital, it is vital to consider the individual needs of these people by ensuring all online information and digital platforms are accessible to them.
CEO and Founder Ross Linnett announced back in March that Recite Me would support all businesses for free to provide accessible Coronavirus information to their staff and customers. Since the start of the Recite Me pledge, we have worked alongside 120 companies to support over 50,000 unique people to access vital information barrier-free.
You can request an accessible version of your covid-19 support information by contacting the Recite Me team anytime. Your inclusive page will live within 48 hours of requesting our support.
Recite Me CEO, Ross Linnett commented, “Recite Me was a dream to drive change, to be inclusive and to enable everyone to explore and share our online world freely. During these uncertain times Recite Me is here to support businesses across the world to create an accessible message to everyone surrounding Coronavirus. No cost, no agenda, just accessibility for all.”
This support will enable people with differing abilities, visual impairments, learning difficulties and people who speak English as a second language to understand their message.
The Recite Me accessibility & language support toolbar will automatically launch on your landing page, proving people with a wide range of options including text to speech functionality, fully customisable styling features, reading aids and a translation tool with over 100 languages, including 35 text to speech voices and many other features.
Clare Armstrong, Head of Passenger Services at London Luton Airport commented, “Joining the Recite Me pledge has enabled us to communicate our COVID19 message to the widest possible audience. Visitors can customise their viewing experience through a screen reader, styling options, reading aids, and a translation function.
“This online support allows London Luton Airport’s key messages to be accessed and understood by all, particularly during these difficult and unsettling times.”
Any business can visit the Recite Me website now to find out how the free accessible and inclusive landing page works and how to create their own landing page.
