We worked with Recite Me on the launch of their new website, which is aimed to educate and support all organisations as they start their inclusive online journey.
The creation of a well-designed, user-friendly website is at the top of our collective agenda when working on this project. It was key to ensure a seamless user experience for Recite Me’s clients, staff members, and website users from all over the world. Naturally, it was key that the principles of accessibility and inclusiveness were at the core of all stages of the design and development processes.
With the diverse range of content Recite Me creates as part of their efforts to provide web-accessibility relevant information to it’s users, it was key to develop a site that accounted for the visualisation of this in an easily navigable manner. The new Recite Me website hosts a myriad of landing pages, a dedicated resource hub, reports and guides, meaning it was key to include logical UX cues for navigation through this content.
Additionally, it was key to make use of accessible fonts throughout the site, which was achieved through the implementation of Lexend within the stylesheet. This typeface is intended to increase reading efficiency by lowering visual stress. Lexend was first created with dyslexia and struggling readers in mind, but Bonnie Shaver-Troup, the project's developer, quickly discovered that these typefaces are fantastic for everyone else as well!
Matthew O’Connor, Commercial Product Owner at Arch said:
“This has been a great opportunity to work once again with Recite Me, our most long standing clients. Recite Me and Arch share many of the same values, among which improving accessibility to digital content sits at the heart, so naturally this has been a great project for our design and development teams to bring together their skills and create a truly accessible website.”
