The Town of LaSalle Extends Online Services

The Town of LaSalle is committed to recognizing the diverse needs of its residents and customers by striving to provide services that are accessible to all persons. The Town has now implemented assistive technology called BrowseAloud on its website in an effort to ensure that more people can access online services independently.

BrowseAloud is designed to make a website more accessible, by providing tools that allow the user to have online content read aloud, with each word highlighted as it is spoken.  This audio-visual reinforcement can aid reading comprehension for those who require online reading support. This includes those with low literacy levels, dyslexia, mild visual impairments and those with English or French as a second language.

The latest version of BrowseAloud also offers a range of features to reinforce online reading support. Key features include dual-color highlighting, text magnification, a dictionary, a translator, an MP3 maker and a screen masking tool.  All features and options are customizable to the end userís need or preference, and can be accessed from an easy to use, floating toolbar.

Visitors to The Town of LaSalleís website can now download BrowseAloud, free-of-charge, from www.browsealoud.com/ca/download  The application can also be used on any website that has implemented BrowseAloud.
