BrowseAloud Plus does more than just read websites aloud.

BrowseAloud Plus makes “reading by ear” possible, providing support to those who have trouble reading websites. This useful tool that reads text aloud provides audiovisual support to people with dyslexia, poor vision, functional illiteracy, and a first language other than Dutch, but can be just as helpful for anyone who prefers listening to their information instead of reading it.

There is a lot to gain if the visitors to your site can have information read aloud to them using audio support.For some people, spoken text on your website might make all the difference regarding whether your message is understood or not.


BrowseAloud functionality

What does BrowseAloud Plus do?

With the click of a button, a small applet will open (a grey bar), the visitor then indicates thetext, and BrowseAloud will begin reading it aloud.. BrowseAloud Plus reads the website texts aloud, while the coloured bar (for sentences and words) displays what text is being read. This allows the visitor to “read” more actively and they always know where they are in the text.

BrowseAloud Plus works immediately: no download necessary for the user. BrowseAloud Plus can read practically every type of content: PDFs as well as secured pages and blank forms.Additional features: spoken language and voice options, page translation, MP3 creation, news ticker option, a contrast bar option, and the ability to simplify pages or modify their layouts to your preference.

How does it work?

BrowseAloud Plus is quick and easy to use. With the exception of adding a button for the read-aloud option, you do not need to make any technical changes to your site. The only thing you need is to insert a small code into the header of your site(s). It works on PC, Mac, tablets, or smartphones, and with all common browsers. Since it does not require any technical changes, our tool can remain active on your website(s) for 24 hours a day. You or your webmaster just paste a piece of code into the header and we do the rest.

Accessibility: it’s not a luxury, it’s a requirement.

Why feature BrowseAloud on your site(s)? Because it’s legally required? Because your visitors asked for it? Yes, but more than anything, simply because you want to be available to everyone!

People with dyslexia, functionally illiterate people, people whose first language is not Dutch, and people with a visual impairment are barely able to read your information, if they can even do it at all. With BrowseAloud, you give them the opportunity to hear your message. This enables you to reach a wider audience. It’s a win-winsituation.



The price of a subscription depends on the type of website that you want to use BrowseAloud Plus on. We have customised rates for libraries, educational institutions, non-profits, businesses, and government institutions. Don’t hesitate to request an offer.
