Ross Linnett, CEO of Recite Me, was the 2nd fastest 100-meter sprinter in the UK at aged 18 and held several records regional records for 100 and 200 meter distances. Ross gave up sprinting, opting to study electrical engineering at Northumbria University. Ross started his post-graduate career as president of Northumbria Students Union, a multimillion-pound business which he turned from an operating loss to profitability via a complete restructure. Ross was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of 22 at university. He was provided with personal assistive technology, but this was limiting as it was based on just one computer. Hence the idea for Recite Me was born. Recite Me is a cloud-based web accessibility assistive toolbar solution that allows website visitors to customise a site in a way that works best for them. Recite Me is now a global Enterprise SaaS accessibility solution with clients across the UK, Europe, Australia and America.
