Digital Accessibility

The Women's Foundation of Colorado now provides an inclusive online experience to enable website visitors to access online content and services barrier-free.

As part of our diversity and inclusion strategy, 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. 

Recite Me is innovative cloud-based software that lets visitors view and use our website in a way that works best for them. It helps the one in four people in the US who have a disability, including those with common conditions like sight loss and dyslexia, access our website in the way that suits them best. It also meets the needs of one in five people in the US who speak a language other than English at home, by translating our web content into over 100 different languages.
