Introducing BrowseAloud

A new service to assist people who have difficulty seeing and reading webpages is now available to our users. The service, called BrowseAloud, uses new technology to read computer content aloud. It also highlights the text on the screen as it is spoken aloud.

BrowseAloud works on the Library’s website, local history site and on the Library catalogue. It has a talking dictionary, text magnification, screen masking and translation capabilities. It is available in English and French and you can select the voice of the reader.

BrowseAloud is free to use, and is available to be downloaded to your computer from our website (http://www NULL.browsealoud NULL.com/ca/download). The BrowseAloud link can be found at the top of each page on our website, above the Library’s address.
