Web accessibility and language toolbar

Recite Me allowing you to customise your experience

We have added the Recite Me web accessibility and language toolbar to our website to make it accessible and inclusive for as many people as possible.

It helps the one in five people in the UK who have a disability, including those with common conditions like sight loss and dyslexia, to access this website in the way that suits them best. 

It also meets the needs of the one in ten people in the UK who don’t speak English as their first language, by being able to translate our web content into over 100 different languages.

How do I access the Recite Me toolbar?

You can open the Recite Me language and accessibility toolbar by clicking on the "Accessibility toolbar" and universal accessibility icon icon button.

This button now appears in the top navigation on every page of our website.

After you click on the button the Recite Me toolbar opens and displays a range of different options for customising how the website looks and how you can access the content. 

How does Recite Me help me access this website?

Recite Me helps people access our website and customise the content in a way that works best for them.

The Recite Me toolbar has a unique range of functions. You can use it to: 

  • Read website text aloud (including PDFs)
  • Download the text as an MP3 file to play it where and when it suits you
  • Change font sizes and colours
  • Customise background colour
  • Translate text into more than 100 different languages
