Reading ruler option

Reading Ruler

The reading ruler is to assist you with reading the website. The ruler will follow the movements of your mouse cursor, covering the space above and below to make it easier to read one line at a time.

The dictionary tool


If you double click on a word, you will be able to view its definition from the Macmillan Dictionary. When you double-click on a word, a window opens which lists the different ways a word is used. Pick the most suitable usage and you will be able to read its definition.

If you want to look up words not on this website, you can do this at Macmillan Dictionaries Online.

You also have the option to view the website in a different language. Click on the "Select a language" box and pick a language from the list displayed.

Screen reader

Screen Reader

For blind and visually impaired users we recommend NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access), a free "screen reader" application which reads the text on the screen in a computerised voice. This tool can be used on a variety of different programmes on your computer - not just your web browser or the Smartcare website.

You can control what is read to you by moving the cursor to the relevant area of text with a mouse or the arrows on your keyboard.

Click on the screen reader icon on the tool bar for more information and a link to download the programme on to your computer.

Ageing Data Driving Innovation

Developing ageing knowledge and understanding through the power of data analytics.

About Insight

ADL Insight has been developed in collaboration with Newcastle University’s Industrial Statistics Research Unit (ISRU). Our insight uses data analytics, mining and modelling. We use ADL Smartcare's unique anonymised data (as well as open sources and other sources) to create insight around older adults, from their capabilities and impairments to their home environments. We implement ethical practices and protocols within data and our wider research.

This service will allow individuals, businesses, organisations and local authorities to access insight and statistics. Through this, our research and insight will:

  • help to better understand ageing
  • utilise data evidence to drive innovation - from service redesign to developments of new products.

Overall ADL Insight will positively impact businesses and help older adults live better for longer.
