Web accessibility and language toolbar

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

Recite Me is innovative cloud-based software that lets visitors view BALTIC's website and use it in the way that works best for them.

For more information on Recite Me, check out their website here. This helps the one in five people in the UK who have a disability, including those with common conditions like sight loss and dyslexia, to access BALTIC's website in the way that suits them best. It also meets the needs of the one in ten 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 do I access the Recite Me toolbar?

You can open the Recite Me language and accessibility toolbar by clicking on the button called 'Accessibility Tools'. This now appears in the top left hand corner on every page of the website. After you click on the button the Recite Me toolbar opens and displays a range of different options for customising how the website looks and how you can access the content.
