Buckinghamshire Building Society now provides an inclusive online experience to enable website visitors to access online content and services, barrier-free.
As part of the diversity and inclusion strategy, visitors to www.bucksbs.co.uk are now able to access a wide range of accessibility and language support tools to customise their digital experience through Recite Me assistive technology.
Being able to offer an inclusive experience is essential to support over 20% of the population* who may encounter barriers when exploring a website due to having a disability, learning difficulty, visual impairment, or if they speak English as a second language.
The Recite Me assistive toolbar on the Buckinghamshire Building Society website includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customisable styling and an on-demand live translation feature with over 100 languages including 35 text-to-speech options.
Gerard O’Keeffe, CEO at Buckinghamshire Building Society commented, “We are committed to putting the needs of our members first and accessibility is an important part of that. By implementing this technology, we are ensuring all customers can access information and services in a way that best meets their individual needs.”
Ross Linnett, Recite Me’s Founder and CEO commented, “It is important to provide an inclusive online experience, where everyone can use our digital world in a way in which best suits their needs. As more organisations provide accessibility tools online, those who face online barriers can access information and services hassle-free. The digital world must be accessible for all.”
