It’s Christmas Eve (again) – where did the last year go?!
Today is the final day of our Digital Inclusion Advent Calendar, which has marked the festive season and told the story of what’s been happening at Recite Me this year.
We’ve opened a new box in our digital calendar every day to have some festive fun and celebrate the world of digital inclusion and accessibility.
Highlights from our Digital Inclusion Advent Calendar
On day one of the calendar we showcased how Scottish football club St Johnstone FC became the first professional football club in the UK to add Recite Me to their website in July.
The next day we celebrated the launch of the guide to digital inclusion for recruiters by Recite Me and Guidant Group in February this year.
And on 5 December we celebrated Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, who had a vision about the internet being accessible to everyone regardless of disabilities.
On 6 December we highlighted how 10 – 15% of the world’s population have a learning disability such as dyslexia, and that Recite Me’s built-in dictionary can help web users with dyslexia to quickly understand unfamiliar words.
Some of the other highlights of the calendar include when we celebrated famous dyslexic person Albert Einstein on 13 December. Considered one of the most influential scientists of all time, he made great contributions to the world.
We hope that the calendar has made you smile and shown the world how disability doesn’t have to be a barrier if you take digital inclusion seriously and make reasonable adjustments.
Thank you and Merry Christmas
As we sign-off this year we’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our customers, staff, suppliers and associates, who we depend on to successfully achieve our mission to make websites accessible for everyone.
We are extremely grateful for all your help and wish you all the best for a great 2019.
Finally, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from our Founder and CEO Ross Linnett and the rest of the team here at Recite Me!
