We are very excited to announce that we are partnering with Chase Park Festival, taking place in Summer 2018!
The Recite Me software is now being used on the Chase Park Festival website to make the entire process inclusive for all. People can now purchase tickets and access information about the festival quickly and easily, regardless of their disability or impairment. Accessibility starts online, and the festival has now met these online needs, as well as at the festival itself!
Chase Park Festival is an amazing event for people of all walks of life, giving those with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy an event that they may not have otherwise been able to, due to accessibility issues. This pioneering event is family friendly, fully inclusive and tackles many of the social and cultural issues faced by people with a disability or long-term illness. The festival will be fully accessible, providing facilities such as Mobiloo - accessible toilets that have enough room for support workers, changing facilities, and hoists. The event will also be providing performance BSL interpreters who will be there for any festival-goers with hearing difficulties, allowing them to experience the magic of music with their friends and family. All the staff and volunteers at the event understand the needs of disabled people, providing a lovely, relaxing and accepting atmosphere.

The partnership between us will ensure that this accessibility starts online. Ross Linnett, Managing Director of Recite Me, commented on the partnership:
“We are absolutely thrilled to be going into a partnership with Chase Park Festival. It gives us the opportunity to be a part of this pioneering event, and to connect with those with disabilities by providing them with an easier and more convenient way to browse the web.”
Accessibility starts online. This tech-driven world provides us with opportunities that we wouldn’t have otherwise been aware of, however these opportunities are not always accessible to everyone. We want to provide accessibility from the outset, helping those with disabilities feel welcomed, supported and accepted. An estimated 1 billion people globally have a disability, and 11 million in the UK alone, and we have transformed the Chase Park Festival website to accommodate the needs of these people. Alistair McDonald, organiser of the festival, commented on Recite Me and said:
“I'm really impressed by the simplicity of what Recite Me does. The tool offers a really broad range of accessibility functions, down to people with certain visual impairments who prefer different colours, and this can be customised. It is not intrusive, there for those who need it, and customisable. A fantastic tool.”
Our toolbar includes text to speech functionality, dyslexia software, an interactive dictionary, a translation tool with over 100 languages and many other features. As Recite Me works across all devices, users can access the Chase Park Festival website from anywhere and can access the information they need quickly and easily. Recite Me allows everyone to view the Chase Park Festival website in a way that works for them.
