The Recite tool bar (shown above) can be used to tailor the appearance of the website to suit the user, to make sure that everyone can use our website easily.
To access the tool bar simply click on the “Recite” logo at the top of the website.
Below is a breakdown of how each of the buttons can help:
These buttons can be used to read out segments of text found on the page, using the arrows to navigate to different pieces of text on that page.
This tool is used to increase or decrease the size of the text shown on screen using the “plus” and “minus” icons.
This tool is used to change the colours on our website to suit the user. It can change the colour of both the text and the background.
The “Ruler” tool can be used as guidance when reading. It can be moved up and down on the page and you have the option to change the colour of the ruler using the “colour” tool above.
This is the “Dictionary” button, which, after clicked on, can be used to highlight words on the page. Then a small box will appear near the top left corner of your screen with the definition of the word(s) you have highlighted.
This is the “Other languages” button which is useful if English is not your first language. This gives you the option to select an alternative language. The text on screen will be translated to the language you select.
This tool gives you the option to see a text only version of the website if you do not want to see any of the images and other media.
This is the “Magnification” tool, which can be useful if the text is hard to read. Simply hover the mouse over the area you need and that area will be expanded so it is easier to read.
This is the “reset” button which is used to remove any of the settings you may have used from this list. This will restore the settings back to the default.
