Making our website more accessible
20 January, 2022
City Health Care Partnership CIC (CHCP) now provides an inclusive online experience to enable website visitors to access online content and services barrier-free.
As part of our diversity and inclusion strategy, website visitors can access a wide range of accessibility and language support tools to customise their digital experience through Recite Me assistive technology.
Being able to offer an inclusive experience is essential to support over 20% of the population who may encounter barriers when exploring our website due to having a disability, learning difficulty, visual impairment or if they speak English as an additional language.
The Recite Me assistive toolbar on the CHCP website includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customisable styling options an on-demand live translation feature that boasts over 100 languages including 35 texts to speech and styling options.
Megan Foot, Accessibility Officer at CHCP commented, “Accessibility is extremely important to us. We are committed to ensuring all customers can access information and services in a way that best meets their individual needs.”
”Equality, Diversity and Inclusion are very high on our agenda, so we are incredibly proud to be able to provide Recite Me’s innovative assistive technology across our website.”
The internet can be an incredibly intimidating place for people with access barriers and those lacking the tools they need to adequately understand or communicate are at a significant disadvantage.
Ross Linnett Recite Me’s Founder and CEO said, “It is important to provide an inclusive online experience, where everyone can use our digital world in a way in which best suits their needs. As more organisations provide accessibility tools online, those who face online barriers can access information and services hassle-free. The digital world must be accessible for all.”
