It gives full instructions and users can even choose the voice, its speed, volume and pitch and how the words are pronounced.

Once installed, Browsealoud

will read aloud any page of Saffron's website simply by moving the cursor over the text.

“We believe it is important that all our residents can access our site,” explained Adam Ronaldson, Saffron's chief executive.

“A separate section of the website is dedicated to our residents and they can access a large amount of information about their tenancy.

“This system will assist anyone with visual impairments and others who may have difficulty reading such as those with dyslexia or learning difficulties or people for whom English is not their first language.”
