Browse Aloud

We have added speech, reading and translation support to our website with Browsealoud.

Read the website out loud

Browsealoud works by reading our website content out loud in a natural sounding voice.

Translate the website 

It can translate our web pages into 99 languages and read the content aloud in 40 of the most commonly spoken languages in the world.

Try it out! 

Can you see the orange launchpad on your screen? 

Click it to launch the Browsealoud toolbar. Hovering over each icon pops up what it does. 

The Toolbar

Hover over an icon to select a function.


Click on the "hand" icon, so that it turns orange, then hover your mouse over any text on the website to hear it read aloud.  From a touchscreen device you’ll have to click on the text to hear it.


Clicking on the "world" icon allows you to translate the website into 99 languages instantly and read 40 of the most commonly spoken languages out loud. 

Text magnifier

Text can be magnified by selecting the "magnifying glass".


Specific lines of text can be isolated with the "text mask" function clicked.

We hope that St John's website will be more accessible and usable by everyone, our aim is inclusion for all.
