Hi C.Birch,

This is a great add-on for any forum which wants to offer "accessibility" to visually impaired people.

I have done some minor improvements to the code you have posted to make it more usable with different themes/skins:

Instead of:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Use this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

There are 2 differences here:
1. The path defined is for the SKIN IN USE, so that the speech.png button would have to be placed in the themes "buttons" folder: images/theme_name/butons/ this will allow users to customize the button according to their theme designs.

2. There are no width or height attributes used in the code since this is very restrictive code and button sizes can differ according to forum 'looks'

Hope you find it beneficial,
Thanks once again for this cool mod,
Aku

I like it.. great idea.. though it doesn't work for me due to unsupported language..

How about making it for certain forums only? like I have some English forums and would love to add this to them..

I'll pass on this great idea for now

Thanks


EDIT: since I use different styles for the english/french forums I guess I could use this I just thought of that.. I will give it a try

dont know what i have done wrong

i am not new to installing comlicated mods so this should have been easy for me.

I have made all the edits and done everything but nothing is showing up on my forum.

I have just installed a new style and i made the edits to the new style as that is what i will be using.

Do i have to do it with any other styles as well to make it work?

The site is http://www.cashloopholes.co.uk if that helps and everything is set up so it should be working.

Great idea,

We have a few blind people on our forum and they have screen reader software already, but this gives the option to anyone.

Does anyone know if there is software for reading the image authentication as that is a stumbling block for blind people as their software can't read the images for obvious reasons.

There must be an alternative to image verificartion that uses sound?? (I hope).

Excellent Idea, I thought i would give this one a try and it seems to work prity good (some of the wording is hard to understand) though for people who find it hard to read this hack is a valuable asset to anyones site. That alone gets my vote for motm.

Questions

This looks great and I would like to add it to my site but I have a couple of question:
  1. My forum and all posts are viewable to members only. Will this mod be able to work in my case?
  2. If a member types in English are we saying that by clicking the Spanish button it will translate their English text into another language and speak it?
I would install this but I need these questions answered first.

1. It's reading posts in my Staff Only forums.
2 I don't think the tool does any translating. It just reads the content with inflections and pronunciations of the selected language.
