Digital Accessibility

We want people to get the most out of our website.

And so have chosen to add Recite Me – a web accessibility tool that allows people to customise our website in a way that works best for them.

Why is accessibility important to our work at Health in Mind?

We have chosen to add Recite Me web accessibility and language toolbar to our website to make it accessible and inclusive for as many people as possible.

It helps the 1 in 5 people in the UK who have a disability, including those with common conditions like sight loss and dyslexia, to access this website in the way that suits them best.

It also meets the needs of the 1 in 10 people in the UK who don’t speak English as their first language, by being able to translate our web content into over 100 different languages.

How can people access the Recite Me toolbar?

People can open the Recite Me language and accessibility toolbar by clicking on the Accessibility button which can be found at the top right of our websites – on every page.

After people click on the Accessibility button the Recite Me toolbar opens and displays a range of different options for customising how the website looks and how they can access the content.

How does Recite Me help people access this website?

Recite Me helps people to access our website to do the things they need to do, like find information about how to access our services and resources, find out about our volunteer roles, make a complaint and read our latest news.

The Recite Me toolbar has a unique range of functions. People can use it to:

  • Have the text on our website read aloud (including PDFs)
  • Download the text as an MP3 file to play it where and when it suits you
  • Change font sizes and colours
  • Customise background colour
  • Translate text into more than 100 different languages
  • Access a fully integrated dictionary and thesaurus
  • Reading mask – show only 10% of the screen to help with concentration
  • Magnifier.

'Accessibility is something that is important to the work of Health in Mind and we are committed to investing in our websites to ensure they work for as many people as possible. We know that it can take a lot of courage to look for support with your mental health and so it's vital that when people find us they are able to access our resources and information in a way that best meets their needs.' Wendy Bates, Chief Executive
