How to Set Advanced Settings

settings panel

Easy Web Browsing offers two ways to set advanced options.

One way is to click the triangle button at the lower right corner of each button's area in the operation panel.

These areas are divided into three regions. The leftmost region includes advanced setting options related to "reading" the middle region includes those related to the "display" and the region on the right includes "other settings".

Speech settings

Speech settings



Speech settings(Speech) panel

Use the "Rate settings" slider to select from five possible reading speeds.

Use the "Volume settings" slider to select from five possible reading volumes.

This setting determines whether sentences, links and such on the open page are read in a consecutive manner. A displayed portion moves in conformity with a speech portion on that page. Do not move the cursor.

If you want to discontinue speech before it finishes, move the mouse to an area where no sentences or such exist on the page. If it still does not stop, right-click the mouse.

When you want to restart speech, move the mouse to the point from which you want to start speech. Speech starts from the paragraph to which the mouse is moved. You cannot start speech from the middle of a paragraph.

Continuous reading mode is disabled as the initial setting.

When the checkbox for "Automatically enable speech when it is available" is turned on, reading automatically starts. This function works in situations when a language is other than the one that was being read up to that point, as is the case when you move to a page in another language. Click this checkbox to turn it off.
