English for Academic Purposes EAPP Resource Guide: Language Features

Resources for the study of English as a second language.

How to Limit to HTML articles

You can limit to articles that have HTML articles by using FM T in one of the search boxes.  This will include articles that have HTML and PDF together or just HTML.  Then you can use the HTML article option to listen, download to MP3, and choose a language to translate the article. The article can be read in different languages, but the listen feature is in English. The settings can adjust the speed, highlight the text, choose the color of the text, enhance the text visibility, and scroll automatically.
