Federal Circuit Announcement

This morning the Federal Circuit announced that a read-aloud service is now available on the Federal Circuit website. The service is intended to provide an accessibility tool for users who have trouble reading, have visual impairments, or other limitations accessing information. Here is the text of today’s announcement.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is pleased to announce the incorporation of a read-aloud and visual enhancement service on the court’s website. The program works with web browsers to allow users to listen to text and to resize the text that appears on a site as it is read aloud. This program serves as a useful tool for those who have trouble reading, have visual impairments, or have another limitation that may prevent them from reading materials on a digital device. Additionally, this service provides language translation services and allows users to download website content in either a simplified visual or audio transcription format.
