Sunderland Social Inclusion and Dyslexia Project (SID)
Sunderland Libraries Service is working in partnership with Sunderland Social Inclusion and Dyslexia Project to make the Council IT facilities more accessible.
They have installed Google Chrome on all Council Public Access computers to help if you struggle with filling online forms, banking, health appointments and Universal Credit.
If you are a member of the library you can set up a personalised account with preferences tailored to your individual needs. When your account has been set up you will then be able, using headphones, to have the screen content read to you as well as being able to dictate text.
