BrowseAloud text-to-speech utility

DASO’s website uses the BrowseAloud text-to-speech utility. BrowseAloud is a suite of products that provides reading support on websites. BrowseAloud reads website content out loud, highlighting each word as it is spoken in a high quality, human-sounding voice. Other features include text magnification and translation into a wide array of languages.

BrowseAloud helps any website visitor who requires online reading support or simply wishes to listen to the information on this website instead of reading it. BrowseAloud is particularly useful for those with print disabilities such as dyslexia or mild visual impairments and those with English or French as a second language.
