How do I access the Recite Me toolbar?

You can open the Recite Me language and accessibility toolbar by clicking on the eye icon at the top of the screen.

The toolbar which is made up of coloured buttons will now appear at the top of every page of our website and will display a range of different options for customising how the website looks and how you can access the content.

How does Recite Me help me access this website?
