TextHelp Read&Write is available on all Library PCs. If you are using Google Chrome, you first need to install the Read&Write for Google Chrome™ extension.

To use Texthelp Read&Write to have a web page read aloud: 

  1. Open TextHelp Read&Write
  2. Go to the  symbol and click on the drop down arrow to the right of it
  3. Click on Read the web. If this option is already switched on you will see a tick beside it.
  4. On the web page hover your mouse over an area of text until you see it highlighted. You will hear the text read aloud.
  5. Move your mouse to another area of text until you see it highlighted. You will again hear the text read aloud. Read&Write Gold will read aloud any of the text that is under your mouse.
  6. To switch the Read the web option off click on the drop down list on the toolbar and click on the Read the web option
