HealthyChildren.org Provides Greater Access to Health Content with Text-to-Speech Technology

​HealthyChildren.org, the American Academy of Pediatrics official website for parents, has added text-to-speech technology powered by ReadSpeaker® to all of its article pages, making the site more accessible to those with visual impairments, reading difficulties, or learning disabilities, as well as those whose native language is different from that of the website.

Visitors may now click the "Listen" button on any article in English or Spanish and have the text of the page read aloud to them. Users are not required to download any software in order to use the audio feature.

“We strive to make our pediatric health content accessible to as many parents as possible,” said Jennifer Shu, MD, FAAP, medical editor of HealthyChildren.org. “We’re very pleased to have this opportunity to reach a broader audience with ReadSpeaker’s text-to-speech technology.”
