Making Chrome work for you

Google Chrome logo

Chrome is now the most popular web browser.  Available to download for free from Google Play, the AppStore and Chrome Web Store for desktop computers, there are some really useful Chrome extensions that make much of the web easier to read and understand, particularly if you struggle with large blocks of text for anyone using the Chrome browser.

  • Convert text to speech so you can sit back and listen to an article, ebook or webpage with Select and Speak.*
  • Scan and jump to page sub-headings with HeadingsMap.
  • Toggle off on-screen distractions including unwanted side bars, adverts and other distractions using Mercury Reader.
  • Choose higher contrast displays and alter text and background colours with High Contrast.

Smartphones and tablets often come with built-in or downloadable software for reading text.
