Our workplace is for everyone. And our online communities should be too. We’re excited to share that the Eames Group website now provides enhanced accessibility support to create a barrier-free user experience.
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 individuals’ needs.
One in five people has a disability that can prevent them from reading and understanding online content. Those who are most susceptible to access barriers are those who struggle with decreased vision, learning difficulties, literacy, language/linguistic problems, attention disorders and physical disabilities.
We also recognise that our communities span borders, and Recite Me will enable users who speak English as a second language to utilise the translation tool, available with over 100 language options.
Recite Me accessibility software implemented on our website provides users with the opportunity to customise their online experience. The toolbar includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, an on-demand live translation feature that boasts over 100 languages, including 35 texts to speech and styling options. This includes changes to the font size, type, and colour.
To access the assistive toolbar on the Eames Group website, click the circular blue accessibility icon at the bottom right of the website.
