Listen to this website with Browsealoud
You can now listen to the council’s website using Browsealoud, a free tool that reads web pages to you and highlights words as it reads them. Many other websites offer this facility, including Google and the BBC.
By offering this service we aim to help people with:
- Low literacy and reading skills
- English as a second language
- Mild visual impairments
It does not replace other screen readers.
You will need to download and install the Browsealoud program on to your computer. You will also need speakers, or headphones.
Go to the Browsealoud website. This will take you to a download page.
Once you have downloaded Browsealoud, an icon should appear in the bottom right of your computer screen. Open Browsealoud via this icon and you can set the type of voice, its pitch, speed and volume to your own preferences.
