Have you ever wondered what the round orange icon on the top right corner of the Education Destination Asia website is?

The letter ‘b’ wearing headphones is actually the Browsealoud tool!

Browsealoud has a number of features that make the website more accessible to users from all over the world.

Here are the features of Browsealoud:

 


1.     Listen to text as it is read out to you


All you have to do is hover over the text you want to be read out loud. Portions of the text will also be highlighted as it is being read so you can follow along.
