Gaia Learning Implements Recite Me Toolbar for Inclusive Global Learning Experiences
Gaia Learning, a leader in inclusive and innovative online learning, is thrilled to announce the incorporation of the Recite Me toolbar on its platform, an evolutionary stride in the field of online learning accessibility.

The Recite Me toolbar in the Gaia Learning Library of courses boasts features like screen reading, multiple reading aids, customisable styling options, and an on-demand live translation feature, which supports over 100 languages, including 65 text-to-speech and styling options.
Kirstin Coughtrie, Head of Innovation at Gaia Learning, elaborated on the potential global impact of integrating the Recite Me toolbar:
"The inclusion of language translation is particularly exciting as it renders our personalised curriculum accessible to parents, educators, and learners from across the globe. This not only opens up Gaia Learning courses to markets everywhere but also fosters cohesive conversations about learning amongst all stakeholders, irrespective of their geographical location."
Jodie Evans, a Student Mentor at Gaia Learning, who mitigates her struggles with dyslexia using various tools, including the Recite Me toolbar, emphasised its significance:
"The Recite Me bar is so important for me. Yes, I can read and access the course without it, but due to my processing, it would take me a lot longer to read and extract what I need from the text... It's a godsend for neurodiverse individuals like me, but also a great tool for everyone, showing how inclusive having software like this on a website can be."
Our business development plans for this year place a significant emphasis on diversity and inclusion, making tools like Recite Me an invaluable asset in our ongoing mission to create a learning environment that is truly inclusive and accessible to all.
Ross Linnett, Recite Me's Founder and CEO, who was diagnosed with dyslexia at university, commented on the collaboration:
"It is important to provide an inclusive online experience, where everyone can use our digital world in a way which best suits their needs. As more organisations provide accessibility tools online, those who face online barriers can access information and services hassle-free. The digital world must be accessible for all."
