Text-to-Speech Software

Individuals with Dyslexia and other "hidden-disabilities" can find everyday literacy tasks, such as reading documents or writing emails, challenging. In a work environment where communication (to understand and be understood) is important, some people may struggle and experience anxiety and high levels of stress.

Texthelp Read & Write and ClaroRead offer a variety of literacy support tools to make tasks easier.

Text to speech software can aid reading comprehension, reduce symptoms of visual stress, and improve quality of written work, allowing people with literacy difficulties, neuro-diverse conditions or visual impairment a more accessible and enjoyable approach to reading.

No space to work? Why not dictate?

We all know, business trips come with hotel rooms. Sometimes, or actually most of the time, this means facing tiny rooms which weren’t really designed for working, typing on the laptop, taking notes from the last meeting etc.
