BrowseAloud Information Session
An information session on BrowseAloud will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 7, from 10 to 11 a.m. in the Pryzbyla Center, Room 321/323. BrowseAloud is a software program that reads aloud all website content. All CUA Web pages have this capability, putting the university ahead of the curve on complying with disability law.
 
The software reads Web pages aloud for people who find it difficult to read online, highlights text for those who need help focusing on particular portions of the text, helps those with literacy and visual impairments to read large blocks of text, and increases the number of people who can access content on a website.
 
Having BrowseAloud on a website can increase traffic and improve search engine rankings. Subscriber sites are automatically added to a member directory of speech-enabled websites. The process is done remotely, so website content contributors do not have to make any changes to their sites.
 
All CUA departments and schools are encouraged to send their website content contributors to this training session. For more information, contact Emily Singer, director of Disability Support Services, at 202-319-5211 or singere@cua.edu.
