Wavelength Provides an Inclusive Online Experience with Recite Me toolbar

Wavelength now provides an inclusive online experience to enable our website visitors to access our online content and services barrier-free, in a way that best suits their needs.

As part of our 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 English is their second language.

Mike Adams OBE, CEO, Purple, commented on Wavelength’s implementation of ReciteMe:

“Innovation is not innovation unless it’s inclusive. I am so pleased Wavelength are working with Recite Me to become digitally inclusive. It sends out such a strong statement of intent. And leadership from which others can follow. I am so proud to be working alongside Wavelength as they accelerate their disability inclusion journey.”

The Recite Me assistive toolbar on the Wavelength website includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customisable styling options an on-demand live translation feature that boasts over 100 languages including 65 texts to speech and styling options.

Claire Flawn, Marketing and Communications Lead at Wavelength, commented, “Here at Wavelength, accessibility and inclusion are 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. Diversity and Inclusion are at the forefront of our business 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.”
