What is ReciteMe?

ReciteMe reads website content out loud to transform your online reading experience.  Features allow the ability to personalise the settings to suit individual needs and preferences.  

Features include:

  • Change Font Sizes and Colours
  • Customise Background Colour
  • Read Text Aloud including PDF Documents using DocReader
  • Translation Tools in over 100 languages
  • Full Dictionary and Thesaurus

ReciteMe helps website visitors who require online reading support and those who simply prefer to listen to information instead of reading it. Those with print disabilities, such as dyslexia or mild visual impairments, and those with English as a second language find ReciteMe particularly useful.
