Browse Aloud - Making Websites Talk

BrowseAloud is registered for use on this website, this means all website content can be read aloud by the computer.

The purpose of BrowseAloud is to improve access to information and services on websites for people with visual impairments that make reading content difficult.

How does it work?

Once you have downloaded BrowseAloud, the BrowseAloud icon will appear in the system tray, which is usually found in the bottom right corner of the screen.

By simply placing the mouse cursor over the text, the relevant sentence will be read aloud and simultaneously highlighted. You can choose to listen to particular sections of text, or the entire page from where your cursor is pointed.

BrowseAloud also provides other features such as screen magnification.

To customise your BrowseAloud settings, right click on the icon, once it is installed on your computer, and choose 'Open BrowseAloud settings' from the menu. Here you can change the speed of the voice and the colours used in text highlighting, save text as an MP3, have links identified and read aloud, customise pronunciations, and much more.
