Text reader feature
The text reader is a built-in widget that helps users who have difficulty reading various textual content and users with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). By using a text reader, the user can control the reading flow using the mouse or keyboard. The user has full control of the reading rate and sound pitch of the text reader widget.
Many users with motor disabilities have difficulty using a mouse. Blind or visually impaired users routinely use keyboard navigation. The keyboard navigation function meets the WCAG 2.0 standard requirements and provides full accessibility, enabling users to navigate through pages using the keyboard alone.
This tool is a critical element of website accessibility design for users who are susceptible to seizures caused by strobing, flickering or flashing effects as well as users with learning disabilities.
