Horsham, VIC improves user experiences with ReadSpeaker text-to-speech website tool

Horsham, VIC ReadSpeaker Website Tool Improve Experiences


The council acquired the tool with West Wimmera Shire Council to improve digital access for rural residents. ReadSpeaker turns a website's text into audio when a user highlights text and clicks the resulting icon. Horsham and West Wimmera implemented this software to enhance website accessibility for blind and low-vision residents. The ReadSpeaker feature also improves access to council services for seniors and residents with limited English literacy.
