BrowseAloud

Listen to our website

Do you want to listen to our website rather than read from a screen?

Our ‘Browsealoud’ service lets you do just that. It’s simple to use, and it’s free. All you need is a couple of minutes to install some software and you’re ready to go. You only need to do this once, not every time you visit the site. It works with most computers and on most software systems.

When you use Browsealoud a voice reads out the information as you point your cursor to the text on the screen. You can control the voice, pitch and the speed.

Putting Browsealoud onto your computer

It’s a step-by-step installation from the Browsealoud website.

Before you start, Browsealoud asks a couple of questions. The first is about the type of computer you use. The second asks if your computer is behind a ‘corporate firewall’. A firewall is used by companies to control access to the internet by their employees – so if you are using your own computer, answer ‘no’. If you are using a computer in an environment like a library or educational establishment please ask for advice.
