BrowseAloud dashboard

BrowseAloud provides translations in a range of languages using the corporate version of Google Translate.

BrowseAIoud can also read web pages and documents aloud in the language selected.

Translations provided by the panel may not be 100% accurate, but feedback received by BrowseAloud shows that people speaking English as a second language find it easier to understand web content using the written translations in combination with spoken voices (see ‘Listen’ information below).

Alternative formats

We are committed to making our website as accessible as possible for all our users and have an ongoing programme of making useful updates and improvements.

Currently the Browsealoud software on our website offers content in the following alternative formats:

  • Speech – web pages can be read directly in over 90 languages or an MP3 created for use later
  • Larger text – the size of text can be increased using the text magnifier
  • Simplified text –the layout of the page can be streamlined, with an option to change the colour/contrast of the text also available.
  • Screen masked text – this option highlights a section of the page and is moved by your cursor.

We are always happy to receive feedback. Please email Communications if you have any comments or require further assistance.
