Visitors and regular users of the WIN website are now able to use the browsealoud feature throughout the site. To access the browsealoud feature please click on the orange icon on the right-hand side of the page.
Browsealoud is a tool which is used to speech-enable a website making the content accessible to a wider audience. The feature adds speech, reading, and a wide range of translation options to the content. It allows users a much better experience and reduces barriers that may ordinarily restrict their usage.
Browsealoud is ideal for -
- people with low literacy and reading skills
- people for whom English is not their first language
- people with dyslexia
- people with a mild visual impairment
Online content can be read aloud in multiple languages using natural and engaging voices to transform the user’s reading experience. There is an on-screen text magnifier which helps users with visual impairments; custom settings to suit user needs and an MP3 converter which converts text to audio files.
Please take the time to view the helpful tutorial video guide on this page for further details. It demonstrates the key features of this tool.
