New read aloud feature on some databases

Our EBSCO databases – Business Source Premier, CINAHL Plus, Education Research Complete, GreenFILE, PsycARTICLES and SPORTDiscus – have a brand new look and some exciting features ready for the new academic year. One development means that you’ll be able to listen to some journal articles being read aloud through your computer. You’ll even have the option to choose the accent you hear – British, American or Australian! A similar feature is available on Art Full Text.

To listen to an article on any of these databases, simply look for one that is available in HTML Full-Text. Click on the HTML option and look for the Listen option at the top of the article. You’ll need headphones to use this feature in the Library. You can bring your own, or buy them at the Library counter. As ever, if you have any trouble, please ask a librarian for help.
