For blind and visually impaired users we recommend NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access), a free "screen reader" application which reads the text on the screen in a computerised voice. This tool can be used on a variety of different programmes on your computer - not just your web browser or the Smartcare website.
You can control what is read to you by moving the cursor to the relevant area of text with a mouse or the arrows on your keyboard.
Click on the screen reader icon on the tool bar for more information and a link to download the programme on to your computer.
