Just4Children is aiming for a more inclusive experience by adding translation, text to speech and styling functions to its website.
A children’s charity has upgraded its website to include online accessibility software.
The upgrade has been carried out to deliver a more inclusive experience online. Those with physical and communication disabilities, learning difficulties and people who don’t speak English as their first language are among those set to benefit.
Recite me includes an assistive toolbar to offer users a range of accessibility function including text to speech, reading aids and styling features.
It also includes a translation tool with more than 100 languages including 35 text to speech voices and a range of other features.
"Just4Children is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience,” said Just4Childern Chief Executive Officer Jeremy Marris.
"Recite Me provides a range of accessibility options on our website to allow everyone to read and understand our content in a way that works best for them. Recite Me was easy to implement and customised to suit our branding."
According to last year’s Lloyds Bank Charity Digital Index only half of charities have accessibility procedures built into their website.
“This means some of the most vulnerable people in society might be missing out on services designed to help them,” states Lloyds report.
