Parma Heights Website Adds Accessibility Tools

Since the launch of the City of Parma Heights new website in August, they have recently added accessibility tools. The upgrades with the addition of the Recite Me toolbar will provide users with certain disabilities access to it.

Recite Me is an online software service system that allows any website to become accessible to users with visual impairments or dyslexia. Disabilities can come in many different forms, but many experience significant barriers when trying to read and understand content online.

The Recite Me toolbar will now allow guests on the City of Parma Heights website to utilize the audio option to have the text read aloud, increase text size, change fonts and add/change background color. In addition, the user can use a ruler or screen mask, which creates a letterbox for focused viewing of a section of the page.

Recite Me also has a dictionary with translation, a magnifier, helps those with color blindness, a translator to English, or even read in a different language.

The city signed a three-year contract with Recite Me for a total of $2,500 annually.

The new Recite Me toolbar to the City of Parma Heights website makes the website more inclusive and user friendly.
