Creating a Diverse and Inclusive Online Experience at WMWA
To support our diverse range of service users West Mercia Women’s Aid now provides enhanced accessibility support online to create a barrier-free user experience.
We are always looking at ways to improve communication and quality of service for our service users, supporters and staff. To fulfil this mission, we now provide Recite Me assistive technology on our website, to enable all our website visitors to customise their experience in a way that best suits individual’s needs.
1 in 5 people in the UK has a disability that can prevent website users from reading and understanding online content. Those who are most susceptible to access barriers are those who struggle with:
- Decreased vision
- Learning difficulties
- Language/linguistic problems
- Attention disorders
- Physical disabilities
Recite Me assistive technology provides support for all of these, making our website inclusive and a place where people can access information hassle-free.
The software implemented on our website provides users with the opportunity to customise their experience in a way that suits their individual access needs.
To access the assistive toolbar on our website, click the ‘Accessibility’ Button above the top navigation bar of our website.
