The Read Aloud toolbar (found in the footer of every page) includes tools that let users hear selections read aloud or make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask sections of the screen for greater visibility. All tests can now be read aloud by ESL speakers, those with vision problems, and those with such learning disabilities as dyslexia.
