BrowseAloud makes North Huron website more accessible

Thursday October 18th, 2012

Background

As part of the requirements under the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR) legislation, municipalities are required to provide or arrange for the provision of accessible formats and communication supports for persons with disabilities. This includes making our municipal website accessible. 

BrowseAloud was the selected tool to add required accessibility features to our website due to its user friendly qualities.

Using the software

Implementation of BrowseAloud has been completed.  Users will now find an icon/logo on the footer of the North Huron homepage that will link to the appropriate software download or plug-in based on the users operating system and their web browser. 

To use BrowseAloud, a user will simply click the target icon/logo in the footer of the North Huron website.  This will load the BrowseAloud software which will then provide a range of features to aid in the navigation of the website.
