We’re proud to support Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2021
Today we celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day by joining together with Recite Me to raise awareness of the importance of creating a digital world where more than one billion people with disabilities or impairments can access online content barrier-free.
Thursday 20 May 2021 marks Global Accessibility Awareness Day’s 10th anniversary. A key date in our calendar to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital access and inclusion.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) world report on disability, 15% of the world’s population are living with a disability. Of this number, it’s estimated that 1 in 5 people do not have access to the assistive technology they need.
You deserve a first-rate digital experience when you visit our website. If you have access needs due to disabilities/impairments, we want you to be able to experience our web-based services and content with the same successful outcome as those without disabilities.
To support everyone online with visual and nonvisual disabilities, we have created an inclusive website to enable you to customise your online experience in a way that works best for you.
Joining Recite Me, we are on a mission to create an inclusive digital world, enabling everyone ease of access to our online information and resources.
When visiting our website, you can use our accessibility and language support tools to create a unique and customisable user experience. Support options include text to speech functionality, fully customisable styling features, reading aids, and a translation tool with over 100 languages, including 35 texts to speech voices and many other features.
Together we can build an inclusive online world. This starts by creating awareness on an individual or organisational level and helping others to understand the opportunities presented by inclusion, we can all make a positive difference together. Join the journey to an inclusive world.
