Mid Sweden University has 21 500 students and offers a wide range of courses within the educational fields of social science, media, healthcare, IT, natural science, technology, as well as languages.
Mid Sweden University has added the ReadSpeaker listen function to their website. They selected Expanding Player with Embedded Highlighting. Additionally, they opted for docReader to provide their users with the option to have their online documents read out loud. The target group of Mid Sweden University are prospective, current and former students, international students, researchers, staff, media and businesses or organizations who want to collaborate with the University.
We wanted to implement a listen function for our online text and documents to make our website accessible even to visitors who find it difficult to read. Accessibility is important for our site. We looked around and tested different websites with different speech solutions. The best we found was ReadSpeaker. When we saw that Swedish Parliament was using ReadSpeaker, we were convinced that we should go for it.
We are very satisfied with the ReadSpeaker listen function. It was easy to implement. It works very well and it sounds good, even in Swedish, which is very unusual. ReadSpeaker is definitely the best solution we have found. Also we are very satisfied with the Support people of ReadSpeaker, who have been great to talk with and very helpful.
