ReadSpeaker allows the text on the website to be read out loud to you rather than just reading it. This makes the content more accessible and creates an enhanced user experience. As a user you don't have to download anything.
How does it work?
Listen to the main content
You simply click the "listen" button to listen to the web pages content. An example of the listen button is seen above.
Once you have clicked on the listen button a control panel will appear. The control panel includes the following features:
- Adjust the Volume
- Pause the Reading
- Stop the Reading
- Restart the Reading
- Choose "No sound?" if your browser does not support Flash
- Choose "Settings" if you want to customize the behavior of the service
- Download an MP3 of the reading
ReadSpeaker can also only read specific portions of a web page by highlighting text. Once you highlight a text segment, you will see a speaker icon appear. Click that icon to have the section you just highlighted read back to you. If you do not see a ReadSpeaker button on a page, you can still highlight text selections to have the content read back to you.
