Recite Me

Over one billion people worldwide encounter barriers when trying to read and understand content online. Without additional accessibility and language options, users face barriers to accessing housing information online.

There are many fantastic housing associations and local authority initiatives that support citizens and provide solutions to people in vulnerable situations. But often, information about the housing sector is only available online. That’s why information on housing websites must be accessible to all.

Recite Me provides an accessibility toolbar that provides every online user with the tools they need to create an inclusive online experience and access housing information barrier-free.


The Recite me assistive toolbar gives website visitors total control when viewing online content. For ultimate ease of use, visitors can make individual or multiple adjustments to a webpage such as:

  • Personalising font size, type, and colour options to make each web page easier to read.
  • Utilising the mask screen tool, which isolates parts of the page to help with focus.
  • Using the ruler tool to make reading easier.
  • Downloading content as an audio file as an alternative to reading.
  • Converting page content into over 100 different on-screen languages.
  • Having the page read aloud in a choice of 65 different languages.
  • Customising PDF documents and have them read aloud or translated.


Beyond Housing provides 15,000 homes and a wide range of services to over 30,000 customers living in the Tees Valley and North Yorkshire.

One of their customers, Anda was happy to weigh in on the difference the Recite Me toolbar has made.


"I’m a member of an Eastern European community support group and regularly use the Recite Me toolbar to translate online content. I can access information with various different adjustments, including translation in many languages, some of them even in audio version. I can also change colours, text, and use other on-screen tools."
