We have a number of online tools that are available for those with visual impairments. You can make your computer talk in a number of ways, which can be a valuable facility for people who have visual impairments or have difficulties with reading large volumes of text.
Supernova/Text to speech in libraries
We have introduced technology on specific computers across our Camden maintained libraries which will assist those with visual impairments by reading out loud, magnifying what is on the screen and/or adjusting the contrast and changing the colour to suit your needs.
Please ask staff for information in the following libraries:
- Camden Town
- Highgate library
- Kentish Town
- Queen's Crescent
- St Pancras
- Swiss Cottage
- West Hampstead
