We have invested in the Recite Me facility because we believe everyone should have the opportunity to be able to access online content.

The new addition to our website includes a screen reader which reads aloud website text and enables you to customise the website’s colour scheme as well as the text’s font style, size, colour, and spacing.

It also assists reading with five tools – a ruler, screen mask, magnifier, margins, and dictionary.

For those who don’t speak English as their first language, the Recite Me assistive toolbar quickly and easily translates all web content into over 100 languages, including 35 text to speech voices.

To access the toolbar, click on the ‘Accessibility Tools’ tab at the top right of the homepage main navigation panel.
