One in five people in the UK have a disability, including common conditions like sight loss, dyspraxia and dyslexia. Recite Me helps everyone to find information about us and about what we do.

It also meets the needs of the one in ten people in the UK who don’t speak English as their first language, as Recite Me translates our web content into over 100 different languages.

How do I access the Recite Me toolbar?

You can open the toolbar by clicking on the blue ACCESSIBILITY TOOLS button at the top right of every webpage on a computer.


From your phone or tablet, click the burger bar at the top right of your screen, then click on the blue Accessibility Tools button at the bottom of the dropdown list. Click here for an image of what this looks like.


After you click on the Accessibility Tools button, the Recite Me toolbar opens and displays the options for customising the website and how you can access the content.


You can move your mouse or touchpad over each button to find out what it does.


Here's one example of how the webpage can be changed using the Styling button:
