If you are visually impaired, or working with someone who is, try listening to an article from one of our EBSCOHost databases. Although HTML articles are not as common as PDFs when you have the option choose HTML over PDF.
To listen to an article click the Listen icon (see 1 above). The two buttons next to Listen will pause or stop the reading. Standard American is the default accent, but you can choose Australian or British (see 2 above). The cog icon (see 3 above) allows you to set Highlighting and Reading speed options. We recommend the default Word and sentence option and a Slow reading speed. If you like, you can download the article as an mp3 file (see 4 above).
We used a MAC and saved the mp3 file to iTunes (see below) and found this to be a less jerky – less robotic listening experience.
