Literacy software for adult learners, individual students, or schools without internet connection.
The standalone version of k3000 can be purchased and used on a single computer. Schools and other organizations can order multiple standalone versions for one-on-one use.
The k3000 network version is best for a single school location. The software can be installed on as many computers in the school as needed. Using a Local Area Network (LAN) connection, available licenses can be pulled from the server for students to use the program. Get a free trial to check it out.
Literacy software for blind or visually impaired adult learners and students.
K1000 is scan and read software that uses keyboard shortcuts to navigate through the software instead of a graphical user interface. It combines text-to-speech, using human-like voices, with both communication and productivity tools. Users can send files to portable devices such as DAISY and MP3 audio players for on-the-go access. Test it out for free to see if it’s right for you.
