BrowseAloudPlus Information

BrowseAloudPlus is a small computer program that works with web browsers to allow users to listen to text that appears on a web site as it is read aloud. Once the required software is installed, a computer-generated voice reads aloud the selected text, highlighting the specific text as it is read. BrowseAloudPlus is a free download and information can be accessed here.

BrowseAloudPlus can be a useful tool for persons who may have difficulties reading text online, or who have literacy problems or a learning disability such as dyslexia. It can also be helpful for persons with limited English language skills who may find it easier to listen to spoken text instead of reading the words on a page.

After BrowseAloudPlus has been added to the browser's bookmarks toolbar, you may start the software by clicking on the icon. Wait for the BrowseAloudPlus control menu (see below) to load, then place the cursor on the text that you would like the software to read out loud.
