Rainbows website becomes accessible to all

Rainbows’ website has a new accessibility tool making it more user friendly for supporters.

The accessibility tool, known as Recite Me, allows visitors to our website to do a number of things including translating text to different languages, use a screen reader to read the content aloud and change the colours to help with visual impairment.

Michael Younger manages the website at our hospice. He said: “This tool makes our website more accessible to those with neurodiversities, vision impairments and language barriers. We are delighted to have been working with Recite Me to enable our website – which is a wealth of information about our charity and services – accessible to everyone.”

Recite Me is a cloud-based web accessibility assistive toolbar solution that allows website visitors to customise a site in a way that works best for them.

Approximately one billion people globally have a disability and they can often face barriers when visiting inaccessible websites that prevent them from taking an active part in life.

Ross Linnett, CEO and Founder of Recite Me, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People to provide an inclusive digital experience for all. It is fantastic to see so many great organisations breaking down online barriers to make the digital world a more inclusive and accessible place.”
