Information in different languages

We’ve added ReachDeck to our site (a digital inclusion toolbar that used to be called Browsealoud, from Texthelp). ReachDeck offers reading and translation support, helping you to access and understand our online content better. To learn about how to use ReachDeck in another language please see below.

Translating and interpreting information

ReachDeck can translate text into 99 languages and read text aloud in 40 languages.

Try it out for yourself…Click on the orange ‘speak’ button that you can see at the top of the website page on the left.  This will launch the ReachDeck toolbar along the top of the page- which if you click on the icon in the toolbar, it will allow you to select a language and will convert all the website into that language. If you want it to read that language out loud press the icon.
