Dear all,

do you have references on how impaired users consider text-to-speech alternative, such as Readspeaker (http://www.readspeaker.com).

Is it a good feature to add to a page that is already accessible ? Does it help impaired users or do they consider this negatively (maybe because you can't skip paragraphs or easily read again words, for instance?) ?

Thank you for your input
