Browsealoud – speech, reading and translation

By April 18, 2019 No Comments

Did you know that Browsealoud functionality enables speech, reading and translation support, and is available to all visitors to our website?

This innovative tool from Texthelp assists millions of people out there who struggle to access and understand information online.  In the UK, over 12 million people have print disabilities such as dyslexia, low literacy, mild visual impairment and over 8 million people were born abroad so speak English as a second language.

Browsealoud works by reading our website content out loud in a natural-sounding voice. It can translate our web pages into 99 languages and read the content aloud in 40 of the most commonly spoken languages in the world.

Try it out! Can you see the orange launchpad on your screen? Click it to launch the Browsealoud toolbar. All you do is hover your mouse over any text to hear it read aloud.  From a touchscreen device you’ll have to click on the text to hear it.

Now, check out the translation feature – Browsealoud can translate our website into 99 languages and read 40 of the most commonly spoken languages out loud.
