Listen to this website with BrowseAloud
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
- 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.]
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).
Click on the panel and the BrowseAloud Plus toolbar will appear.
There are two options for reading text: hover highlighting and text selection.
The toolbar options are:
- Hover Highlighting
- Text Selection
- Pause/Resume Speech
- Stop Speech
- MP3 Maker
- Talking Text Magnification
- Screen Mask
- Close Toolbar
