A Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Through Accessibility
Jewish Family Service is helping more of our neighbors access critical information on our website with the accessibility tool called Recite Me. For people with varying visual abilities, non-English speakers, and people who have difficulty reading text on a screen, Recite Me will help you access, view, and use our web pages in a way that works best for you. 1 in 4 people in the US have a disability, including dyslexia and sight loss, and 1 in 5 people in the US speak a language other than English at home. We’ve added the Recite Me toolbar to our website to increase accessibility and inclusivity for as many people as possible.
How do I open Recite Me?
Access the Recite Me toolbar by clicking the launch button at the top of this page or Accessibility Tools in the top menu on every page of the website. The toolbar displays a range of different options for customizing the way the website looks and ways in which you can access the content. Below is a quick reference guide, or you can explore the full set of possibilities in the Recite Me User Guide.
Learn more about these functions: Translation, Screen Reader, Reading, Styling, and How to Exit.
Screen Reader Functions
Read aloud in 35 different language options in a natural voice.
Activate the Screen Reader by clicking on the green icons to play, skip backward a paragraph, or skip forward a paragraph. Alternatively, when you hover over any block of text, the Screen Reader options will appear, and the Screen Reader will automatically read the selected text. (You can change these defaults in the Settings menu).
Turn Off Recite Me
At any time, exit from Recite Me by click on the “X” in the top right corner.
