Watford has launched its all-new club website with the integration of Recite Me assistive technology to support fans with disabilities, visual impairments or people who speak English as a second language, reports www.fcbusiness.co.uk

At this time, it is crucial to be accessible online to support 20% of the population with disabilities, as we all stay at home. This innovative accessibility software will help bring supporters closer to the club by allowing fans to read and engage with the latest Watford FC content barrier-free.

As part of Watford FC's 2020 focus on supporting people with hidden disabilities, they have improved their digital landscape making sure it is accessible and inclusive for everyone.

The Recite Me accessibility and language toolbar provides a number of features to give a visitor full control over the customisation of the website to suit their needs. These features include screen reader, styling options, reading support and a translation tool with over 100 languages, including 35 text to speech voices.
