Need help reading our website?
The City's website has BrowseAloud digital inclusion software installed (or a 'screen reader'), to make content more accessible with reading and translation support.
How do I use BrowseAloud?
Click on the orange Browsealoud launchpad icon that appears on the bottom right of your screen (example pictured below) to launch the support toolbar. Then simply click on any text to hear it read out loud.
Please note that the BrowseAloud software may not function in all internet browsers. In the event that it does not function on your browser, there are other screen reader software options (both free and fee paying) available to be downloaded directly to your device, for use across all websites.
For more information about customising your web browser and computer set up, visit the W3C website - http://www.w3.org/WAI/users/browsing
