Industries: Software Development

Here at IDA, we are passionate about accessibility! We are using a solution from Texthelp Inc. called ReachDeck to help make our websites more accessible. Behind the scenes, our staff use the ReachDeck Auditor to run accessibility scans of our websites to provide the best possible experience for all our website visitors. This also helps us stay compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) from the World Wide Web Consortia (W3C). For our website visitors, we’ve added the ReachDeck Toolbar that adds text to speech read aloud, whole page translation into over 100 languages and other reading support tools to all of our websites. This allows us to welcome and support visitors with various reading and language differences, such as dyslexia, low literacy, English as a second language, and those with mild visual impairments. ReachDeck Toolbar includes:

Text-to-speech read aloud with synchronous highlighting to enhance reading engagement and comprehension.
Translate web pages into over 100 languages with read aloud in around 40 languages.
Picture Dictionary defines a word using a picture.
MP3 generator converts selected text to audio files for offline listening.
Screen Masking lets you increase focus on an area of the screen, while shading the rest to reduce distraction.
On-screen text magnifier helps users with mild visual impairments by reading aloud text in a larger size.
Web page simplifier shows just the text from the page view by removing ads, images, and other distractions. Customize the settings for you needs and preferences.

Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Reachdeck(formerly Browsealoud)- Read and Write reviews

We know that it takes on average 3 years for a person to disclose that they have a neurodiverse condition. The number of neurodivergent colleagues we have is higher than we think. That’s why we’ve made Read&Write available to every single colleague.

- Neil Eustice - Accessibility manager (Enterprise Wide Technology Group)

We decided early on that we wanted to make Read&Write available to everyone. It’s available for download anonymously from our internal software library. And that’s really important: staff can ‘self-serve’ without any kind of stigma or embarrassment if they don’t want to be identified as having additional literacy needs.

- Tony Antoniou Infrastructure Solutions Architect

Providing Read&Write shows that we’re willing to invest in the best support that’s demonstrates that we really do invest in our staff and care about their wellbeing.

- Manal Sadik - Service Manager Language and Accessible support and Equality Advisor
