Many people find the text on the screen difficult to read, for example if you are working at a higher screen resolution or using a laptop with a smaller screen you may find the text too small to read easily. Also if you have sight loss you may also want to increase the size of the text to make it easier to read.

You can increase the size of the text on this website by holding down the control key and pressing the + button or minus one to decrease the font size, or by turning the wheel of the mouse.  If you are using a Mac, you will need to hold down the command key.

 

 

BrowseAloud

BrowseAloud adds speech and reading support to online content to extend the reach of websites for the 20% of the population who require reading support. This includes those with dyslexia, learning difficulties, mild visual impairments and those with English as a second language.

BrowseAloud is free to use and works with all major browsers.

The Association is committed to ensuring that as many people as possible can access and use our site.  Rather than asking visitors to our site to download Browsealoud, we have it integrated into  our site.  To access this feature – click on the icon featured on the top right hand corner and follow the instructions.  We hope you find this helpful.   To hear text read aloud from a desktop or laptop computer you simply move your mouse pointer over the text.  From a touch screen device, you simply click on the text to hear it read aloud.
