We have added a web accessibility and language toolbar called Recite Me to our website. This tool makes our site accessible and inclusive for as many people as possible. The toolbar allows you to customize our website in a way that works best for you. And, if you don’t need it, you don’t have to use it; the website can look exactly the same as it always has.
How to Access the Toolbar
You can open the Recite Me language and accessibility toolbar by clicking on the dark yellow “Accessibility & Translation” button at the top of our webpage.
This Accessibility & Translation button now appears in the top right corner on every page of our website.
After you click on the Accessibility & Translation button, the Recite Me toolbar opens and displays a range of different options for customizing how the website looks and how you can access our content.
The toolbar will remember your last settings on your device. When you return to our website, the toolbar will reset our website to your preferences upon launch. If you’d like to clear your settings, hit the reset button, which is the second button from the right. The reset button is pictured below.

Reading content online can be a challenge for some people. To simplify and support you to read our content, Recite Me provides a few different tools.
Key features include:
Plain text – All styling is stripped away, leaving text only, much like a document.
Ruler – Read line by line with no distractions of what is below.
Reading Mask – Mask away 90 per cent of the website, leaving only the information you want to concentrate on, at one time.
Magnifier – As it was in your hand, zoom in to sections of text to read more clearly.
Margins – When in text only mode, you can use the margin feature to position content in the best place for you.
Dictionary – Website visitors have access to a fully integrated dictionary and thesaurus.
By using Recite Me, you can quickly and easily translate all our website content into over 100 languages, including 35 text to speech voices.
