Customising Chrome to make the web easier to read

<strong>Customising Chrome to make the web easier to read</strong>

Why settle for standard fare when there are so many free downloads for the Google Chrome web browser to customise your experience? Some make the web easier to read and understand, particularly if you struggle to wade through large blocks of text or distracting find side-bar images distracting. 

Highlights include:

  • Select and Speak converts text to speech so you can sit back and listen to online content.
  • HeadingsMap creates a list of section headings for web pages that you can click to visit each page section.
  • Postlight Reader removes images and side bar content, presenting web pages as a simplified, easy to read column of text.
  • High Contrast offers a choice of higher contrast text and background colours to improve readability.

You can find still more in the Chrome Web Store.
