Posted January 26, 2010
Academy Canada Career College has introduced BrowseAloud voice interactive software to its website, allowing visitors surf the internet much easier.
BrowseAloud Verbal Introduction Instructional Video
BrowseAloud software is a unique solution from Texthelp Systems designed to assist website visitors with learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, mild visual impairments, low literacy, English as a second language, and basic reading and/or writing skills. It reads online content aloud, highlighting each word as it is spoken.
Implementing this software allows Academy Canada to improve program and service accessibility for current and prospective students, not just in our three campuses, but also our online services.
This software gives the user full control and does not impact website performance. The technology is unique in its delivery and free to the user.
To use BrowseAloud, visitors simply download the free plug-in available at http://www.browsealoud.com and hover their mouse over the text to have it read aloud.
