We have made every effort to make our site accessible and easy to use for everyone, no matter what browser you choose to use, and whether or not you have any disabilities. The site's layout takes into account users who are blind or visually impaired. It is compatible with popular screen reading software.
Who is Browsealoud helpful to?
Browsealoud helps people with low literacy and reading skills, dyslexia, English as a second language and people with a mild visual impairment.
What does Browsealoud do?
Browsealoud reads the content of a website to the user, who can select from a range of voices. It can read all types of content including text, tables, downloadable documents like pdfs and alt text for images.
How it works
The user downloads an application for free. After that they can use Browsealoud on any website that is Browsealoud enabled – this includes the Sky Blue Medical Group website. The user then moves their mouse to highlight the part of the page which they want Browsealoud to read.
Other Browsealoud features
Browsealoud also has a dictionary facility which allows the user to look up words, the ability for the user to save a chunk of audio onto an MP3 file and listen to it later, and the ability to magnify and change the colour of text and background.
