Difficulty reading text on a web page? Try sitecues!

sitecues

svg-accessibility-5-638Do you have difficulty reading text on a web page? Would you like the text larger or have it read to you? Sitecues® by AiSquared is easy-to-use software designed to both magnify and read text on a web site. This is a simple tool particularly helpful to those with low vision or with reading disabilities. The New Jersey State Library is pleased to announce that we added sitecues® to our web site to provide a more effective way to explore the State Library’s services.

To get started using sitecues®, look for the sitecues® badge at the top of the web site:

Magnification of Text

  • To increase the size of text: Use your mouse to slide the zoom bar to the right. You will notice that your cursor will also increase in size.
  • To decrease the size of text: Use your mouse to slide the zoom bar to the left.

Reading of Text

With sitecues®, you can select text to be read to you as you move through a web page.

To use the speech, select text that you would like to be read and press the spacebar. Your text will pop up in a reader box and will be read to you:

  • If you want to keep reading up or down the page, use your arrow keys.
  • If you want to stop reading after text is read to you, press the space bar again, press escape, or select the reading icon.

Enjoy your web browsing experience and read on!
