Web accessibility software company Recite Me has announced that it will support all businesses for free by providing accessible and inclusive online Coronavirus-related information to their staff and customers.

This latest offering will ensure disabled people can stay up to date with essential information and guidance about the virus.

Amid these challenging and uncertain times, people want to stay in the know about how the virus will impact their lives, jobs and the services they use.

The pandemic has seen disruption to all aspects of daily life, with schools closing, the UK going into “lockdown”, healthcare events like Naidex and Med-Tech Innovation Expo being postponed, and the NHS agreeing a major deal with independent hospitals across the UK to urgently expand capacity to deal with the increasing number of ill patients.

Recite Me says it is vital that Coronavirus-related information is accessible and inclusive in order to keep as many people as possible informed on crucial information.

In light of this, the company will host a free accessible landing page for any business to share their Coronavirus-related messages to all staff and customers.

Each bespoke landing page will automatically launch the Recite Me accessibility and language assistive toolbar, helping people with disabilities, visual impairments, learning difficulties and people who speak English as a second language to stay well-informed.

Recite Me has a range of features that include text to speech functionality, fully customisable styling features, reading aids and a translation tool with over 100 languages, including 35 text to speech voices.

Any business can visit the Recite Me website to find out how the free inclusive landing page works and how to contact Recite Me to create their own landing page.

Ross Linnett, Recite Me CEO and Founder, said: “When information is vital, it is vital that information is accessible and inclusive for all.

“During these uncertain times Recite Me is here to support businesses across the world to create online information related to Coronavirus that is accessible and inclusive for everyone.

“Recite Me was a dream to drive change, to make society more inclusive and to enable everyone to explore and share our online world freely. So this is our pledge to help everyone in a time of need by helping any business make key information relating to Coronavirus accessible online, free of charge.

“If you think your business needs help to make your Coronavirus related online information accessible and inclusive to all your staff and customers, please contact us now.”
