SNIPET:

"Kent County Council is delighted to announce that they have renewed their BrowseAloud subscription so that their website can continue to assist people with literacy difficulties, dyslexia, mild visual impairments or for non-native speakers.

Tracey Gleeson, Web Manager for Kent County Council comments, “Making our website more accessible to visitors who may have had problems reading the web content fits into our overall vision to offer services that are fully inclusive and reach out to all communities. It made sense for us to join BrowseAloud as we are constantly striving to provide the best service possible.”

...Key features of BrowseAloud include the text magnification which increases text size, Dual Colour Highlighting, MP3 Output and a talking dictionary. BrowseAloud will also read accessible HTML, PDF documents, hyperlinks and tags behind images."
