“We are excited to continue to leverage technology to offer meaningful improvements to our website that will allow our viewers to have ease of use options available to them”
(CMR) Cayman Marl Road (CMR) news website is now audio enabled in six languages offering anyone the ability to listen to news articles instead of reading them. The option is available across mobile, desktop and tablet devices. All website articles are now available in audio format.
Available languages include English, Spanish, Chinese, French and Italian. Selecting one of the languages is easy – simply click on the globe and the other languages become available to select.
CMR continues to integrate technologically advances into our platform that focuses on ease of use for the readers. We know that some customers may not be able to read the text easily for a number of different reasons so this was a logical upgrade. Some persons who are sight-impaired will find this extremely useful. It's also great for anyone who may have difficulties reading or English is not their primary language.
The feature has been rolled out to the entire website and covers all archived articles as well as newly posted content. This is but one of the many features that we hope to roll out in the coming months to benefit our viewers.
CMR is the only local news website to offer this feature.
