What does Browsealoud do?
Browsealoud reads the content of a website to the user, who can select from a range of voices. It can read all types of content including text, tables, downloadable documents like pdfs and alt text for images.
How it works
The user downloads an application for free. After that they can use Browsealoud on any website that is Browsealoud enabled – this includes the GMC website. The user then moves their mouse to highlight the part of the page which they want Browsealoud to read.
Other Browsealoud features
Browsealoud also has a dictionary facility which allows the user to look up words, the ability for the user to save a chunk of audio onto an MP3 file and listen to it later, and the ability to magnify and change the colour of text and background.
