SDF and Accessibility

SDF is committed to making our content, resources and services accessible and inclusive. As part of this commitment, we review our work to ensure that it can be easily accessed by everyone, including people with an impairment or a disability.  We want everyone to be included and supported when accessing SDF materials or services.

Please get in touch if you have problems accessing any content or have any thoughts on how we can improve the accessibility of our work.

We now provide accessibility and language support on our websites through the plug-in Recite Me. This toolbar can be found at the top of our webpages and we hope it supports access for anyone .

The plug-in allows visitors to customise their engagement with our websites to suit their needs.


Recite Me Toolbar Guide

You can activate the ReciteMe Toolbar by clicking the Accessibility Tools button at the top of the page on our SDF websites.

Below you will find a guide to using all of the features on the Recite Me toolbar. For more information and support please visit reciteme.com/user-guide.
