Reading aid

Our website can also be used by people who are visually impaired (blind or partially sighted) or who suffer from dyslexia. As an aid, we use the Reading aid function (Browsealoud). This allows you to have a page read aloud for you, or to magnify the letters.

How does the reading aid work?

There is a ‘Reading aid’ link at the top of each page. Click on this link to open the reading aid task bar, and start the reading aloud process.

Place the cursor on the text and after a short while, the text will be highlighted, and the reading aid will start. Navigating is simple: just place the cursor on any other text that you wish to have read aloud, and it will automatically start.

If you’re using a smartphone or tablet, just press the text. After a moment, the text will be highlighted, and the website will be read aloud.
