Search launches website accessibility technology to promote inclusive recruitment. As an exceptional recruitment agency that is passionate about creating job opportunities and inclusive recruitment processes for all, Search is delighted to be breaking down barriers and introducing Recite Me to our website.
The software is a cloud-based web accessibility tool which enables website visitors to customise the page style, colour and set up to suit them and enable them to navigate around the website and read the content more easily.
Everyday, millions of people are searching for jobs, and those who are visually impaired face the extra challenge of finding a website that can help them use the internet like everyone else. Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their age, sex, race, disability, religion or sexual orientation, this is central to Search and our key values. Search believes that everyone has the right to the same user experiences and, in the case of our website, the same access to jobs and services we provide.
Implementing this ground-breaking technology is enabling Search to support more exceptional candidates take the next steps in their career without any barriers and deliver a more diverse talent pool to our clients.
The technology will also benefit those who speak English as a second language. They will be able to use the real-time translation feature which can translate over 100 languages, and has 35 text to speech voices.
