Disability Rights South Dakota Provides an Inclusive Experience Online

An arrow points to the Accessibility Button on DRSD's website.

Disability Rights South Dakota (DRSD) now provides an inclusive online experience to enable website visitors to access online content and services barrier-free. DRSD’s website visitors are now able to access a wide range of accessibility and language support tools to customize their digital experience through Recite Me assistive technology.

Being able to offer an inclusive experience is essential to support individuals who may encounter barriers when exploring our website due to having a disability, learning difficulty, visual impartment or if they speak English as a second language.

The Recite Me assistive toolbar on the DRSD website includes screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customizable styling options, and an on-demand live translation feature that boasts over 100 languages including 35 texts to speech and styling options. 

The internet can be an incredibly intimidating place for those with access barriers, and those lacking the tools they need to adequately understand or communicate are at a significant disadvantage.

Ross Linnett, Recite Me’s Founder and CEO, commented, “It is important to provide an inclusive online experience, where everyone can use our digital world in a way in which best suits their needs. As more organizations provide accessibility tools online, those who face online barriers can access information and services hassle-free. The digital world must be accessible for all.”
