To support our diverse range of stakeholders who visit our websites, the City & Guilds Foundation now provides enhanced accessibility support online to create a barrier-free user experience.
We pride ourselves by going the extra mile to always improve communication and quality of service for our customers and staff. To fulfil this mission, we now provide Recite Me assistive technology on our websites, to enable all our website visitors to customise their experience in a way that best suits individual’s needs.
1 in 5 people in the UK has a disability that can prevent website users from reading and understanding online content. Those who are most susceptible to access barriers are those who struggle with:
- Decreased vision
- Learning difficulties
- Language/linguistic problems
- Physical disabilities
Recite Me assistive technology provides support for all of these, making our website inclusive and a place where people can access information hassle-free.
Recite Me accessibility software implemented on our websites provides users the opportunity to customise their experience in a way that suits their individual access needs. The toolbar includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, and allows users to change the font size, type, and colour. The on-demand live translation feature boasts over 100 languages, including 35 languages with text-to-speech functionality, including Ukrainian, Arabic and many more which support refugees who visit our website for support.
To access the assistive toolbar on our website, look for Accessibility Tools at the top right of the menu on cityandguildsfoundation.org or princessroyaltrainingawards.com.
