Access for everyone – Browsealoud
We want everyone who lives in Sutton, Merton and Surrey Downs, to have an opportunity to read about our proposals for Epsom and St Helier hospitals, respond to our questions, contribute their own ideas and take part in the public consultation.
To help this to happen, our website features software designed to support anyone with a visual impairment, learning disability or where English isn’t their first language. Browsealoud is a support tool which reads aloud, magnifies and translates all the content (including pdfs) on our website.
Browsealoud has features which you can personalise to suit your own needs and preferences. It works by reading aloud all web text, pages and PDFs. If English isn’t your first language, you can request BrowseAloud to translate our documents into your preferred language. By clicking the orange button in the bottom right corner of the screen and then clicking the small world globe in the toolbar that appears. It offers a choice of 40 of the most commonly spoken global languages, with text translation available in a choice of 99 languages. You can also magnify the text to a size that suits your sight.
Other features of Browsealoud include a web page simplifier. This cuts out other related information on the page, to help focus on specific text.
Browsealoud also allows you to create an audio file of text to listen to on your smartphone, tablet or computer, so you can read and take part in the consultation at a time and place that suits you best.
Using Browsealoud to read pages out loud
Turn on your computer’s speakers, then access Browsealoud by clicking the orange headphone icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. A toolbar will appear on screen, click the finger pointer icon and hover your cursor over the text you want read aloud. Browsealoud will read it to you. Other features such as translation, text magnifier and page simplifier can be accessed by clicking on icons within the toolbar. If you roll your mouse over each icon a description will appear describing what the feature does. Click the ? help button on the Browsealoud toolbar for more instructions.
