Enhancing Website Accessibility

To improve the user experience, Bradley International Airport now provides accessibility and language support on our website, www.bradleyairport.com. Visitors to the website can now customize their experience through a range of tools by activating the “Recite Me Toolbar.”

The toolbar displays a range of different options for customizing the way the website looks and how users interact with the content. For example, visitors can choose from a range of features including translation into over 100 languages, text-to-speech functionality, reading aids, and styling options. This includes adjustments to color, font type, and size. With the introduction of the tool, visitors can now view content in a way that works best for them. The tool was rolled out as part of a broader refresh of the website, which has created an overall more user-friendly experience.

How do I access the toolbar?

To open the toolbar, click on the Language & Accessibility button located in the top right corner of any page on the BDL website.
