What is BrowseAloud?

BrowseAloud makes websites accessible to those who require online reading support, which is 20% of the UK population.  It works by reading web pages aloud in a human-sounding voice.  The user simply hovers their mouse pointer over the text to hear it read aloud. BrowseAloud Logo
