Metro Introduces Free Software to Help Visually Impaired Navigate Web Site
Metro unveiled free software on its Web site Friday morning that reads aloud text as users move their mouse over words on the transit agency's Web site.
BrowseAloud (available here) is meant for people with "mild visual impairments, low literacy and reading skills, and learning disabilities such as dyslexia," Metro's Chief Information Officer Suzanne Peck said in a news release.
Metro spokeswoman Angela Gates said the agency's cost for a three-year subscription to the software is $14,395.
