ReadSpeaker makes it possible for our visitors to listen to text on the website, quickly and easily. It makes our website fully accessible for people who find reading difficult like dyslexics, people with impaired vision, children and people with English as a second language.
How does it work?
The user activates ReadSpeaker by clicking the "readspeaker" button at the top of every webpage of this website. The ReadSpeaker software will convert text into spoken words, which is then transferred to the user's computer in MP3 or WAV format. The Flashplayer on the computer is activated and starts reading the selected text.
Users can decide what content should be read by "highlighting" text. Also, the speed with which text is read can be adjusted via the "settings" menu.
To use ReadSpeaker, the following items need to be installed on your computer:
- Adobe Flash Player
- Web browser, soundcard and speakers / headphones
ReadSpeaker works on most computers and internet browsers, without the need for additional text-to-speech software.
Flash-pages and Acrobat-PDF documents are not supported by ReadSpeaker.
