For millions, the internet has been inaccessible—until now.
No matter their circumstances, people with access challenges deserve an equal opportunity to use library resources. With Browsealoud through Library Market, you’ll have a seamlessly integrated, easy-to-use tool for engaging these users both on your website and at your public access computers.
Browsealoud provides visitors to your website with the most intuitive accessibility tools at their fingertips, anytime and anywhere. In addition to transforming your website, your purchase of Browsealoud also comes with a Chrome extension that can be installed on all of your library’s public computers. Rather than having dedicated accessibility stations, you can offer every library user, no matter what challenges they face, the ability to access the internet on any computer at your library.
Easy-to-use, intuitive, and multi-functional, Browsealoud is the ideal web accessibility tool for libraries. Take the tour below and contact Library Market today for more information.
