Listen to our website

You can listen to the council’s website using BrowseAloud, a free tool that reads web pages to you and highlights words as it reads them.

By offering this service we aim to help people with:

  • Low literacy and reading skills
  • English as a second language
  • Dyslexia
  • Mild visual impairments

It does not replace other screen readers.

[Note that you cannot listen to our online forms using BrowseAloud because our forms are on a secure site.]

Using Browsealoud

You will need speakers, or headphones.

Scroll to the bottom of the page - you will see the BrowseAloud Panel (the panel appears on all pages of the website).
