Styling

Our website is customisable to a way that works for you. Recite Me supports people who are dyslexic, visually impaired or have a learning disability to change the way our website looks, so you can experience it the way it is intended.

Key features include:

  • Text size and colour
  • Website background colour
  • Text font type, including Open-Dyslexic
  • Text only option, where all styling is stripped away. This leaves text only for your viewing, much like a document
