“All customer-facing emails are coded to be read aloud.”
“We contract out for Easy Read and Auslan translations of important content.”
“We use web quality assurance tools to monitor accessibility, readability etc across our websites. We also provide assistive technology software on our websites which adds text to speech functionality. Products used: Monsido and BrowseAloud.”
