SpeakIT Plus is a service that makes it possible for all municipalities, governments, organizations and companies with websites to increase the accessibility to their information. With SpeakIT Plus, all visitors may have the websites read out loud directly on their computer with the help of synthesized speech. For Swedish sites, word explanation is included as standard.
This is how SpeakIT Plus looks when the service is started!
The user can choose to have all text or selected text read out loud with highlighting. The links are read either by clicking a button in the toolbar or by stepping forward with the TAB key. With SpeakIT Plus, the user may also have any text of their choice read out loud by hovering the mouse pointer over it.
For Swedish websites SpeakIT Plus uses the voice Elin from Acapela. English speech is also included as standard. For customers with the demand for different languages we also offer Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese and US English.
SpeakIT Plus can read unlocked PDF files and Word documents that are linked on the website.
For Swedish websites SpeakIT Plus also includes a word explanation as standard. The dictionary includes about 70,000 words with explanation. This unique service has been very appreciated by our users because people with reading and writing difficulties often have a limited vocabulary along with their disability. You may also add specific words and terms for your website to the list of words free of charge.
Since SpeakIT Plus is a server solution, the visitor is not required to download or install any software or plugins for their web browser. It works on all computers, phones or tablets that have an internet connection and sound capability, making it accessible from many places such as schools, libraries, Internet café’s etc.
