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 available...it 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
