We're making our website more accessible
We want to make sure that the information we provide is easily accessible and inclusive of different needs.
That’s why we’ve added BrowseAloud to our website - a free-to-use tool that reads aloud the content.
As well as providing speech, it can also translate text to another language with a choice of different reading speeds and highlighters to enhance understanding. There’s also the option to simplify the pages or convert content into audio versions for easy offline listening.
To use BrowseAloud, click on the orange headphone icon found in the Accessibility tab. This can be accessed in the top navigation of the website when viewing on a desktop, or through the Menu button when viewing on a mobile device. Hover over the text you want read aloud and BrowseAloud will read it to you. Other features can be accessed by clicking on the icons within the toolbar.
BrowseAloud joins more accessibility tools already on the website including options to change the text size, contrast and language. The new feature will also be added to MyPCH shortly.
You may need to clear your cookies first for the feature to work.
