Talking website for Nunnykirk
24 April 2012
Nunnykirk has improved access to its website by adding a text to speech facility which is particularly helpful to anyone with dyslexia. To use the facility just click on the RoK logo at the top of the right hand column on the home page and a tool bar will appear and you can switch on auto and then highlight the piece of text you want to turn to speech. When finished just switch auto off and then go back the Rok logo and hide toolbar. The site background colour can also be changed by using the highlight facility on the tool bar.
Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty (SpLD), often inherited and is a lifelong condition. Dyslexia is much more than the traditional definition of ‘difficulty with words’ or ‘word blindness’.
Nunnykirk School is very happy to offer a taster day for any child with dyslexia whose parents are considering sending them to the school.
