This week is Recite Me's 'Accessibility to Me Week' 2023

Recite Me is the supplier of the digital assistive software on our website, making the information more accessible for our website users.

In today’s increasingly digital world, let’s ‘Stand Up and Speak Out’ for unity. We’re all part of this interconnected world, with content accessible at the click of a button. It’s our shared responsibility to champion digital inclusion. 

The 13th - 17th of November 2023 marks Recite Me’s Accessibility To Me Awareness Week, a key date in our calendar where we celebrate accessibility and share with others how we can champion inclusion. 

This year’s theme is ‘Stand Up, Speak Out’, where businesses across the globe are sharing what accessibility means to them and how they are being inclusive. 

Here at Karbon Homes, we believe that everyone should have access to a voice and a place in our interconnected society. 

With the help of Recite Me assistive technology, we provide a unique and customisable user experience on our website. You can choose from a range of tools including, text-to-speech functionality, customisable styling options, reading aids and a translation tool that boasts over 100 languages, including 65 text-to-speech voices. 

Di Keller, Karbon Homes' Strategic Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Lead said: "Recite Me is a great tool for our customers offering a range of supportive technology including screen readers, read aloud and translation services to name but a few. The real benefit of having the technology in place all of the time on the website means that we’re removing barriers for our customers without the having to navigate the initial barrier of having to ask. It’s a win win!" 

With over 1 billion people worldwide who live with some form of disability or impairment, it is vital that we prioritise inclusivity. 

Together with Recite Me we are on a mission to create an inclusive digital world, in total Recite Me is used on over 5,000 websites and we are thrilled to embark on this journey with them. 

On the Karbon Homes website alone, last quarter we amassed almost 10,000 website page views from over 2,500 unique website visitors using the Recite Me assistive toolbar and screen reader!

Accessibility is important to us as it provides all users with equal access and opportunities, regardless of their individual circumstances. We are committed to online accessibility and this can be achieved with the use of the Recite Me Accessibility Checker and Assistive Toolbar.
