Freedom Scientific’s Learning Systems Group, which makes software for students with learning disabilities and who have difficulty reading, has introduced a new version of its TestTalker software that includes French and Spanish capabilities. Designed to help students with disabilities succeed in taking tests and completing worksheets, TestTalker provides a computerized version of a test, worksheet, or other form that can talk. The software uses the same bimodal approach–simultaneously highlighting words as they are spoken aloud by the computer–that is used in WYNN (What You Need Now), the division’s flagship product. TestTalker 1.2 can recognize French and Spanish documents as well as English.
