Our Brief

The University of Liverpool delivers a comprehensive program of support for staff and students with disabilities to make the university and its services accessible.

It has over 3000 registered students who have disclosed a disability, and it provides a range of software and hardware for students (and staff) to help them access the university and its services.

The university turned to Recite Me to help ensure its website is accessible to as many people as possible, including people with disabilities.

Our Solution

The Recite Me toolbar was introduced to the University of Liverpool’s website in 2017.

The Recite Me toolbar lets anyone view the website in a format that is fully accessible to them.

It lets people change elements such as the font size, plus the font color and background color contrast, as well as giving the option to have the text read out aloud.
