London Learning Consortium (LLC) now provides an inclusive online experience to enable website visitors to access online content and services barrier-free, in a way that best suits their needs. 

As part of our diversity and inclusion strategy, website visitors are now able to access a wide range of accessibility and language support tools to customise their digital experience. We have been working with Recite Me to provide inclusion to our website users. 

Heather Armstrong, Business Development Director, commented “LLC has such a wide variety of fully funded education and employability support available for our community. We are therefore delighted to launch our fantastic new website to enable better access and more effectively meet the needs of everyone that uses our range of services.”

Being able to offer an inclusive experience is essential to support over 20% of the population who may encounter barriers when exploring our website due to having a disability, learning difficulty, visual impartment or if they speak English as a second language. 

The Accessibility and Language Support assistive toolbar on the LLC website includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customisable styling options an on-demand live translation feature that boasts over 100 languages including 65 texts to speech and styling options.  

Stephen Jeffery, Chief Executive Officer of London Learning Consortium, commented, “Here at London Learning Consortium, accessibility and inclusion are extremely important. We are committed to ensuring all customers and staff can access information and services in a way that best meets their individual needs.”

The internet can be an incredibly intimidating place for those with access barriers, and those lacking the tools they need to adequately understand or communicate are at a significant disadvantage.  

Ross Linnett Recite Me’s Founder and CEO commented, “It is important to provide an inclusive online experience, where everyone can use our digital world in a way in which best suits their needs. As more organisations provide accessibility tools online, those who face online barriers can access information and services hassle-free. The digital world must be accessible for all.”
