Hear this website being read aloud using Browsealoud
Our website is speech-enabled, which means you can quickly and easily hear the contents of this website being read aloud using a piece of software called Browsealoud. This helps those with reading difficulties, literacy problems, dyslexia, mild vision difficulties and where English is not their first language.
You may already have Browsealoud installed on your computer, if not, visit http://www.browsealoud.com/ , navigate to the downloads page and select either the PC or Mac version as appropriate. After you download and install Browsealoud you will see a 'blue concentric circles icon' in the system tray at the bottom right hand corner of your screen to tell you that Browsealoud is loaded and ready.
Once the program is installed, words will be instantly turned into speech when you roll your mouse over text within our website. Browsealoud also reads text in Adobe .PDF files attached to our website.
To download British voices, open the Browsealoud application then click on the 'updates' tab. Choose the option to 'get voices, updates and help'. You can then download two British voices, one male and one female. More information, and details of how to customise and fine tune the software to your individual requirements, can be found on the Browsealoud website.
