BrowseAloud

Visitors to the our website may listen to the content by using BrowseAloud. BrowseAloud reads website content out loud in a high quality, human-sounding voice. Each word is highlighted as it is read aloud and the sentence is highlighted in a contrasting colour. This allows users to easily identify what text is being read aloud and navigate within and between web pages.
