NHS Sheffield CCG transform their online accessibility

NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) have enhanced their accessibility by implementing leading literacy software Browsealoud onto their website. As a result, those who have low digital skills, print disabilities or those with English as a second language can access www.sheffieldccg.nhs.uk.

The CCG comprises of 87 GP practices and is fully authorised as the statutory organisation with responsibility for purchasing many of the health care services for the local population of approximately 580,000 people.

Working with other clinicians, healthcare professionals, patients and the public, the CCG prides itself on delivering high quality, efficient and cost effective healthcare services for people across Sheffield.

To help with this, the website is now enabled with Browsealoud and equipped with friendly speech, reading and translation tools therefore making it accessible to a much wider audience.

Sarah Baygot, Communications Manager at NHS Sheffield CCG comments,

“Browsealoud is a fantastic function which has really enhanced our website accessibility. Thanks to the look and feel we are confident that our online visitors now have a better experience, with the speech and reading tools they may need, when accessing our website content.”

The innovative support software Browsealoud adds speech, reading and translation features to any website.

Online visitors have the option of having content read aloud to them and translated in an extensive variety of different languages. Pictures and adverts can also be removed allowing focused reading, when using the Simplifier tool. To use these features and more, visit www.sheffieldccg.nhs.uk, and click on the orange Browsealoud launchpad located at the top of each page on the website.
