With over 11 million disabled people in the UK, we’re passionate about ensuring everyone has the opportunity to find the right role. We’re pleased to announce we’ve added innovative accessibility software, Recite Me to our website, making the job search a more inclusive process than ever before.
About Recite Me
Recite Me is a cloud-based accessibility tool which allows users to customize our website in the way they need it to work for them. For example, visually-impaired or dyslexic users can adjust elements like font size, background colour and has the ability to read text aloud. As well as removing barriers for disabled candidates, Recite Me makes the recruitment process more inclusive by translating the website into over 100 different languages.
To use the tool, simply click ‘Accessibility Tools’ at the top of the Rullion website which will open the Recite Me toolbar. You’ll then be presented with a range of accessibility tools and settings, as well as the option to change language.
The full range of tools includes:
- Changes in font sizes and colours
- Fully customisable background colour
- Options to have text read aloud (including PDFs) that can be downloaded as an MP3
- Full dictionary and thesaurus
- Translation into over 100 different languages
Recite Me is completely cloud-based, therefore users won’t need to download anything to their device. The software can also be used on laptops, PCs or on mobile devices, meaning it can be used anywhere, by anyone.
Melanie Forbes, Group Managing Director says, “We’re really pleased to have integrated Recite Me across our website as well as our careers site, making sure everyone has an equal opportunity in their job search. It’s essential for us to provide our candidates with the information they need in a way that is specific to their needs. I’m a huge advocate of improving opportunities for disabled people and I’m proud of the steps we’ve taken this year to becoming a disability-inclusive company.”
