Many websites now have accessibility tools built into them. This is to help people who may require bigger text, read aloud or to translate text. These tools are designed to help people with dyslexia, mild visual impairments or those whose first language is not English.

Different types of tools are available on different websites.

For example, at Developing Healthy Communities, we use a tool called EqualWeb. You will see this symbol at the side of the webpage and you can click on it to access the tools. 

By clicking on this button you can use the following icons to:

  • Increase the size of the text
  • Read aloud
  • Change the language

The PHA uses Browsealoud and they have provided a simple instruction leaflet to help users translate the information its website. This leaflet has been produced in many different languages.
