BrowseAloud reads website content aloud and highlights each word as it’s spoken. This helps users with low literacy and learning difficulties and mild visual impairments to read text on screen. It can also assist those who use English as a second language.
Other features include text magnification, a talking dictionary and the option to save text as an MP3.
BrowseAloud is available free to people using our website and other activated websites.
