Canon USA Supports BrowseAloud
BrowseAloud is a program that reads out the words on a website, highlighting the words as they are being read aloud. BrowseAloud is a tool for people who may find it difficult to read text online or for those who may have literacy problems and/or learning disabilities such as dyslexia. It is also a beneficial tool for those for whom English is a second language and may have trouble reading. BrowseAloud allows you to "listen" to the contents of the web page you are viewing.
As you move the cursor over words on a web page they are spoken out loud. If preferred, the continuous option may be selected which allows the entire contents of the web page to be read without having to mouse over every sentence. BrowseAloud can also be turned on/off by a simple click of the Ctrl key. The voice, pitch, and speed of the BrowseAloud reader are also customizable by the end-user to suit their needs. BrowseAloud is free to download and use.
You should first review the Installation Instructions provided on the BrowseAloud website.
