Temple University is committed to designing its learning spaces to ensure access to everyone. To that end, the university has partnered with BrowseAloud, a software tool that reads web pages out loud.
How do I make the International Student and Scholar Services web site talk?
Once you have BrowseAloud installed on your computer, all you need to do is hover your cursor over a selection of text. BrowseAloud will highlight the words and read them out loud.
Through the use of BrowseAloud, Temple University is making our web sites more accessible to the very wide variety of people who access it each day. For some, they may have a reading difficulty, for others English may be their second language and for many they may have a difficulty in reading text on screen. BrowseAloud is free to anyone who wishes to access Temple's web sites.
