We have added Recite Me to our website to help make our content more accessible with reading and translation support.
How does Recite Me help?
Simple and intuitive to use, 'Recite Me' includes audio playback functionality, dyslexia software, an interactive dictionary and a translation tool with over 100 languages. It even has the ability to change the entire colour scheme, font size and style – with a bottom-heavy font for anyone with dyslexia.
We've made sure it’s very simple to use. You don’t have to download or install anything. It also works whether you're on a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
To access Recite Me, all you need to do is select the link on our website that says ‘Listen and translate' which will load the toolbar at the top of your screen.

There is also a Recite Me user guide available if you would prefer.
