All pages must provide text-to-speech functionality accessible through this icon to read web pages ‘out loud’, not only on a computer, but also on iPhones and smartphones including Blackberry and Android, iPads, MP3 players, PDAs, game consoles, smart TVs and Internet kiosks.

Site users will not need to download or install any software. Just click the ‘listen’ button and the reading will start automatically. If you select part of the text, a ‘play’ button will automatically appear next to your cursor, allowing quick access to the text-to-speech function for the selected text. In addition to reading the content of the page, this tool also allows you to highlight the text sentence by sentence or word by word as you read.
By clicking the ‘content reading’ icon, you can configure features of the service such as reading speed, highlighter colours and vertical scrolling.

This system helps users with accessibility needs understand the contents of the site, including people with poor vision, people with reading problems or cognitive difficulties, people with dyslexia, non-native Spanish speakers, and so on.
