More companies join Dyslexia Scotland's member scheme
Dyslexia Scotland has boosted its membership with two inclusion-focussed software organisations.
ReciteMe and IDL join a cohort of organisations that champion accessibility for dyslexic people.
ReciteMe, developers of accessibility software, have a long-standing relationship with the charity who use ReciteMe’s toolbar to make their website more accessible to online visitors, allowing them to play the text as audio, adjust the screen colours and translate the content into other languages.
IDL’s mission-driven software aims to inspire confidence and improve reading ability in young dyslexic learners.
Ryan Foster, Interventions Adviser for IDL, said, “We want to raise awareness of the tools that IDL can offer to support schools. Our main goal is to provide learning support to those most in need and our software is used by thousands of learners across the globe. IDL was developed to support the growing number of young people who are falling through the gaps in literacy and numeracy.”
Dyslexia Scotland Organisational Membership is a key strand of the charity’s strategic plan. The initiative strengthens the voices of organisations who aim to influence inclusive practices and provides the charity with a source of sustainable income, helping them to fulfil their ambition for Scotland to be a dyslexia-friendly society.
Cathy Magee, Chief Executive of Dyslexia Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to welcome ReciteMe and IDL as organisational members. These two socially-driven companies share our vision for a world that fully includes and enables dyslexic people to reach their potential.”
