Accessibility

Text to speech makes the online world – and beyond – available to people with learning disabilities, visual impairments and literacy challenges. Well-designed applications, websites and services give all users equal access to information and functionality. One of the tools that helps make this happen is text to speech (TTS). Deploy ReadSpeaker TTS and turn text-based content into audio and enable all your users to access information and communicate with others.
