The Downtown Mission of Windsor is committed to making our website accessible for everyone.
The accessibility plugin delivers high-quality speech to assist those with dyslexia, literacy difficulties, mild visual impairments and where English is a second language when browsing the web. The plugin features and options are accessed from an easy to use, floating toolbar. They include:
Hover to Speak starts reading the page out loud – this feature is on by default
Play starts reading selected text or reads from the top of the page
Translate Page provides written and spoken translations in multiple languages
Generate MP3 converts selected text into an MP3
Screenmask blocks distractions on screen with a tinted mask
Text Magnifier enlarges text and reads it out loud
Web Page Simplifier removes clutter from the screen, displaying only the main text
Settings customize options to suit individual needs or preferences
