WCG provides an inclusive experience online

Recite Me

WCG now provides an inclusive online experience to enable website visitors to access online content and services barrier-free.

As part of WCG’s diversity and inclusion strategy, website visitors are now able to 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 impartment or if they speak English as a second language.

The Recite Me assistive toolbar on the website includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customisable styling options, and an on-demand live translation feature that boasts over 100 languages including 35 text-to-speech and styling options.

Peter Husband, WCG Group Principal commented, “Accessibility is extremely important to us. We are committed to ensuring all users can access information and services in a way that best meets their individual needs.”

“Diversity and Inclusion are at the forefront of our business development plan, 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 those 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 commented, “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.”
