Read and translate with Browsealoud

Our website supports Browsealoud. Browsealoud reads web pages aloud, has dual-colour text highlighting, screen masking, text magnification, web page simplifier, PDF reader, pronunciation modifier  and can turn text into audio files. It will also translate the text into a number of different languages. The service uses a version of Google Translate which relies on translations already available online – for this reason it may not always be 100% accurate.
