Don Johnston Incorporated today announced Snap&Read, a software toolbar that reads any text on-screen as it floats over any application. Its simple one-button interface reads both accessible and inaccessible text aloud from Flash websites, Word docs, PDFs, web-based tests, web-delivered curriculum, and dialog boxes.
To read text aloud, users launch the Snap&Read floating toolbar and select text on-screen, which is automatically read. Snap&Read also features built-in Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to read text delivered through inaccessible formats like Flash and text-based images.
Snap&Read was designed to make the curriculum more accessible for students with disabilities attending K-12 districts
and is scheduled to ship this spring. K-12 School districts can purchase an Unlimited Snap&Read site license for $399 per school through special introductory pricing or $79 per computer. School districts purchasing district-wide qualify for a discount. The Unlimited Site License includes unlimited school use for all students as well as take-home rights.
