United Way Stands Up and Speaks Up for Accessibility to Me Week 2023

In today’s increasingly digital world, let’s ‘Stand Up and Speak Up’ for unity. We’re all part of this interconnected world, with content accessible at the click of a button. It’s our shared responsibility to champion digital inclusion.

November 13th – 17th marks Recite Me’s Accessibility To Me Awareness Week, a key date in our calendar where we celebrate accessibility and share with others how we can champion inclusion.

This year’s theme is ‘Stand Up, Speak Up’, where businesses across the globe are sharing what accessibility means to them and how they are being inclusive.

UWSWA believes that everyone should have access to a voice and a place in our interconnected society.

With the help of Recite Me assistive technology, we provide a unique and customizable user experience on our website. You can choose from a range of tools including, text-to-speech functionality, customizable styling options, reading aids, and a translation tool that boasts over 100 languages, including 65 text-to-speech voices.

“At the United Way of Southwest Alabama, we believe that accessibility is not just a goal; it’s our guiding principle” said UWSWA Vice President of Community Impact Trista Stout-Walker. “We’re dedicated to making a difference, and that starts with ensuring that everyone can reach out, be heard, and join hands in building a stronger community together.”

With over 1 billion people worldwide who live with some form of disability or impairment, it is vital that we prioritize inclusivity.

Together with Recite Me we are on a mission to create an inclusive digital world, in total Recite Me is used on over 5,000 websites and we are thrilled to embark on this journey with them.
