BrowseAloud Information

BrowseAloud is a computer program that works with Web browsers to allow users to listen to the text that appears on a Web site set up to deliver this functionality, such as www.senate.gov. Once the required no-cost software is installed and running a computer-generated voice reads aloud the selected text on BrowseAloud-enabled Web sites, highlighting the specific text as it is "read".

BrowseAloud can be a useful tool for persons who may have difficulties reading text online, or who have literacy problems or a learning disability such as dyslexia. It can also be helpful for persons with limited English language skills who may find it easier to listen to spoken text instead of reading the words on a page.
