Website Accessibility - Speak Me

'Speak Me', also known as Recite, is a unique assistive technology that enables most parts of our website to be read out aloud with the click of a button from any computer.

The following guide shows you how to use the basic features of Recite.

Using Speak Me

Click on the "Speak Me" logo at the top of the page, a tool bar will appear across the top of the web page.

Hover your cursor pointer over any text and 'Speak Me' will read the text back to you. A small box (as shown) will pop up allowing you to pause, go back to the start or stop the reading, the text being read is also highlighted a pale blue colour.

Using the tool bar

There are lots of other options in the tool bar to improve accessibility, if you hover over the icons a small box appears telling you what you can do.

You can:

  • Change the size of the text or alter the font.
  • Change the colour of the text and background.
  • Change the language - there are over 50 different languages to choose from.
