Can I personalise how I use Author Hub?
CTRL + can be used to magnify the text. The text will reflow to fit the page. In-built browser zoom function can also be used (- 100% +).
Text and background colours
In-built browser functions can be used to adjust both text and background colours. Different browsers include these options under different menus – they can usually be found under Tools, Settings, Options, Content or Reading View depending on the browser.
Browser plugins (e.g., Theme Font & Size Changer for Firefox) or third-party tools (e.g., ATbar) can also be helpful.
Text to speech
Text to speech has been tested on Author Hub with a range of browser plugins and third-party tools such as ClaroRead for Chrome browser. Selected text will be read out by clicking the play button. Various settings such as speed of reading, voice, accent, etc., can easily be adjusted.
