The Shared Care Scotland website has become more accessible.
Shared Care Scotland has added the accessibility software Browsealoud by TextHelp to its website. This aids people for whom English is not their first language and has a built in screen reader for people who are visually impaired. It is straightforward to use and requires no special equipment. To use it, scroll to the foot of any page and click on the Browsealoud icon. This brings up a toolbar with the screen reader, translate or highlight options.
If you use any of these functions we would love to hear how useful they are or how they can be improved. Please email Ben on firstname.lastname@example.org with any thoughts on Browsealoud.
