Autism Plus Introduce Accessibility Toolbar18 November 2019
We are delighted to announce the integration of an innovative accessibility toolbar on our website called Recite Me.
Recite Me is award-winning software that allows visitors to customise the website so it works best for them, which is especially important for our audiences who have a range of neurodiverse conditions and disabilities.
Recite Me includes support functions for people with dyslexia, text enlargement, an interactive dictionary, colour themes, a translation tool with more than 100 languages and 35 text to speech voices. You can access the toolbar by clicking the accessibility button located at the top of any page on the Autism Plus website.
Katie Mitchell, Marketing Manager at Autism Plus said "As a Disability Confident employer we want to ensure we are as accessible as possible, not only to the people we support, but for our employees and supporters. We are constantly looking at ways we can use technology to be an inclusive organisation, these accessiblity options will provide more options for people who can't always easily access websites and will make the content completely customisable in a way they need it to work for them."

“It was extremely helpful having Autism Plus workplace assessment to help us in working with an individual diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, giving us a better insight of the syndrome so we could offer more appropriate support. The assessor was knowledgeable, understanding of the circumstances from a business perspective and really tried having a full overview of the situation. The report came back to us within the promised time frame and full of recommendations on how to best accommodate the individual needs, which was really thorough and supportive.”Enquire Now
