Texthelp Systems Ltd has launched a Mac version of their popular text-to-speech software product, Browsealoud.
Browsealoud speech enables websites, reading online content aloud for those with literacy difficulties, dyslexia, for whom English is a second language and those with mild visual impairments. Browsealoud has become the service of choice throughout the UK and Ireland for reading aloud website content.
Mac users can now download the application and listen to websites being read aloud to them. The website content is highlighted as it is spoken to aid comprehension. Mac users will also have the ability to customise their individual settings by altering the pitch, speed and volume of their chosen voice.
This award-winning technology caters for the 20% of the population who currently cannot access website content. It is estimated that 10% of people in the UK have dyslexia to some degree, and up to 6% are severely dyslexic. 
Browsealoud currently has over 500 customer sites, which can be accessed from the directory page on the Browsealoud website: http://www.browsealoud.com/page.asp?pg_id=70010
They include many schools, college and universities, London 2012, Cabinet Office, NHS, British Council, BT plc and Churchill Insurance.
