We are proud to celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day by joining together with Recite Me to raise awareness of the importance of creating a digital world where more than One Billion people with disabilities/impairments can access online content barrier-free.
20th May marks Global Accessibility Awareness Day’s 10th anniversary. A key date to get everyone talking, thinking, and learning about digital access and inclusion.
According to the WHO’s World Report on Disability, 15% of the world’s population are living with a disability – and of this number, it’s estimated 1 in 5 people do not have access to the assistive technology they need.
Digital access for everyone
Every online user deserves a first-rate digital experience. Someone with access needs must be able to experience web-based services, content, and other digital products with the same successful outcome as those without disabilities – and this includes potential employees of your organisation.
To support everyone online with visual and nonvisual disabilities, we can provide our clients with the tools to ensure their candidate website is an inclusive place where users can customise their online experience in a way that works best for them. Watch the video below to find out how this works.
Joining Recite Me we are on a mission to create an inclusive digital world enabling everyone ease of access to our online information and resources.
Over the past 12 months together we have seen over 2 million people using the toolbar, viewing over 10 million pages in a way that best suits their individual needs.
Create an accessible online experience for your candidates
For our clients that have already implemented the Recite Me Accessibility toolbar on their Jobtrain candidate website, visitors can use accessibility and language support tools to create a unique and customisable user experience. Other functions include text to speech functionality, customisable styling features, reading aids, and a translation tool of over 100 languages and 35 texts to speech voices.
Together we can build an inclusive online world. This starts by creating awareness on an individual or organisational level and helping others to understand the opportunities presented by inclusion, we can all make a positive difference together.
