Web Accessibility

We’ve added the Recite Me web accessibility and language toolbar to our website to make it accessible and inclusive for as many people as possible.


You can open the Recite Me language and accessibility toolbar by clicking on the orange button in the top right corner of the page. The button says "Accessibility and Language" in several languages and switches between the languages regularly.  


This button now appears on the right side of our header on every page of our website.


After you click on the orange button, the toolbar opens and displays a range of different options for customizing the way the website looks and ways you can interact with the content.
