Since 2002, Premier Assistive Technology Inc. has been offering its full suite of Accessibility software products to educational and nonprofit organizations through its Breaking Down Barriers to Assistive Technology grant program, which has benefited more than 1,300 school districts nationwide. To help meet the accessibility needs of students with learning and/or visual disabilities, the program offers a range of software that reads printed text out loud. The software suite includes titles such as Scan and Read Pro, Talking Calculator, Talking Word Processor, Text to Audio, Ultimate Talking Dictionary, and more. Applicants have no obligation to buy, but after the grant period has expired, applicants will have the option to pay a nominal fee to continue the product maintenance, technical support, and upgrades. Grant applications take two to three weeks to process.
