Reachdeck allows users to listen to or translate text that appears on a website. As a cloud-based product, Reachdeck works with web browsers with just a click of the "Listen to Page" icon in the top utility navigation of uscourts.gov.
Reachdeck can help individuals who have:
• difficulties reading text online;
• literacy problems;
• learning disability such as dyslexia;
• limited English language skills and find it easier to listen to spoken text instead of reading the words on a page.
