Browsealoud™ helps the millions of people who struggle to access and understand information online. In the UK, over 12 million people have print disabilities such as dyslexia, low literacy, mild visual impairment and over 8 million people were born abroad so speak English as a second language.
Adding Browsealoud™ to our website is reflective of our commitment to accessibility and inclusion. We want to ensure that everyone can access our information online, regardless of ability. Browsealoud™ helps us to achieve this.
Our website can be translated into 99 languages and read aloud in 40 of the most commonly spoken languages in the world. You can convert any of our web content into an audio file and listen to it offline. You can also block or remove distractions from the page allowing you to focus on the most important parts.

Text resizing and page magnification
Some visitors may find it necessary to increase or decrease the size of the text on our website. In the top right corner of every page on this website (next to the search bar) there is a text size selector which allows you to alter the size of text displayed between small, normal and large.
There are also controls in your web browser which will modify the text size. Most browsers allow you to resize text or change the magnification by holding down CTRL and + to increase size and CTRL and - to decrease size. CTRL and 0 resets the size back to normal. Mac users should replace CTRL with the Command key.
