Why we now use H.I.E.


Why we now use H.I.E.

You may have noticed over recent months we have started to use H.I.E. (with the dots in between), instead of HIE.

If you’re wondering why, it’s because we introduced the Recite Me accessibility toolbar on our website. It’s brilliant and allows users to change language, font, brackgroud for example, and also reads text out.

When it reads out H.I.E. without the dots it sounds like “heee”, and if we put H.I.E., with the dots in between, it reads it out correctly. We’re always learning, and are trying to make sure our information is as accessible as possible.

If you have H.I.E. information on your website it would be good to see the same
