A site has to be enabled by BA before it can be read. So this is like something you can do to your website but it doesn't happen automatically. Enabling your website may or may not be free depending on your (or I should say "...the company's...") business.

Hi all,
Am I understanding correctly, that something has to be done to a document to get the browsealoud software to activate? I can get it to read the demo sites but nothing else. Any ideas?

Hi Tony,

I'm in the process of exploring this option myself. Just to add fuel to the fire, have you seen ReadPlease (www.readplease.com). ReadPlease is helpful to users who are sighted but may have cognitive difficulties with reading digital print.

Hi. I'm wondering what people's opinions are about the browsealoud tool from the textHELP company (www.browsealoud.com). It seems very easy to use but I'm not sure how it 'play with' JAWS or Window-Eyes.

What do you all think of browsealoud as a basic, free text-to-speech tool?
