About the Listen Function

With ReadSpeaker webReader, the content on a website can be read aloud to you. Just one click, and the text on a web page is simultaneously read aloud and highlighted so you can easily follow along, regardless of which kind of device you are using or where you may be. This makes the content more accessible and visiting the website is a more enriching experience. As a user, you don’t have to download anything.

How does it work?

Activate webReader by clicking the Listen button.

webReader also allows you to:

  • Select text and click the Listen button in the pop-up menu that appears to have the selected text read aloud.
  • Click in a paragraph to have it read out automatically.
  • View a clutter-free version of the web page with text in your preferred font, size and colour as it is read aloud and highlighted.
  • Download an audio version of your content for offline listening.
  • Translate a selected text to a number of languages and have the text read out in the target language.
  • Personalise reading speed, highlighting colours, and more.
  • Use the Enlarge Text feature to show the text being read at the bottom of the page in a large font size.
  • Select a word and find its definition in the dictionary.

Clear instructions on how to use each feature are provided in the Help Tool, which is found in the menu. Try reading through the Help Tool to pick up ideas on how to make optimal use of webReader’s features!
