Our website has the Claro Website Reader installed.

With a click on the green button, it opens a floating toolbar that allows you to highlight a word, or all words so that you can listen to the text.

It helps people with reading difficulties navigate the information and resources on each page. So long as the text can be highlighted on our site, it can be read.

It is easy to change the settings in the toolbar. Go to the green cog, and you can change the voice, turn on the dictionary tool, or even use an overlay or ruler to help you track information as you read.

Every website should have this feature: After all around 44% of the adult population is not functionally literate in Australia. I imagine that there are similar figures around the world.
