Our screen reader tool uses the HTML lang= attribute to define the voice, language, and accent that will be used to announce elements on your website.

We understand that this may cause some confusion, especially when dealing with languages that have multiple accents or regions.

To help you better understand this behavior, we have compiled a list of languages that have multiple accents or regions:

  • English (US/UK/Australia)
    en-US   United States of America
    en-GB   United Kingdom
    en-AU   Australia
  • Spanish (Spain/Mexico) 
    es  Spain
    es-MX  Mexico

  • Portuguese (Portugal/Brazil)
    pt  Portugal
    pt-BR Brazil
