BETT 2013 PREVIEW RELEASE
Showcasing the latest developments in assistive technology on stand B130 at BETT 2013, iansyst will be launching azzapt – a new cloud-based service which removes barriers to accessing books, learning materials and text on the move. iansyst will also be featuring a line-up of new products including CapturaTalk for AndroidTM - a literacy support tool that helps build reading, writing and note taking skills; and the Earlbright eLearning Portal, specifically designed to work as a companion for students who receive one on one training from iansyst.
The azzapt service makes text content suitable for learner’s needs whether it be larger font, coloured background, different font styles or an audio version and is available on all types of devices including desktop computers, mobiles or tablets. Taking cloud syncing technology a step further, azzapt automatically applies an individual’s reading preferences to their files whilst transferring it between different mobile devices. The azzapt service has been developed as part of the MyDocStore project, which was awarded Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) funding from the Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Technology Strategy Board (TSB). Supported and managed by JISC TechDIS, the aim of the project is to enable learners to produce and access navigable and personalisable digital information independently and spontaneously, anytime, anywhere, in an effective and user friendly way.
CapturaTalk for Android™ application is a revolutionary tool that provides literacy support to improve reading and writing skills on Android mobile phones and tablet devices. Utilising Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to capture text from a photograph or digital document, users can have the text read aloud via text-to-speech, translate the words into over 20 languages, check spellings and meanings using the integrated dictionary, add voice notes and save text as audio, providing added assistance for anyone requiring reading and writing support.
The Earlbright eLearning Portal offers a comprehensive range of multi-media resources that allow students to re-visit the information from their training sessions, particularly useful for those with dyslexia or poor memory retrieval.
Visit the stand to speak with iansyst’s highly qualified assistive technology specialists and receive demo’s and expert advice on iansyst’s wide range of leading software, hardware and assistive technology solutions designed to help people with dyslexia and other disabilities.
