Lorien Systems Home Pages with TextHELP!
By Martin McKay
Reprinted from the EdRes mailing list.
The TextHELP! home pages contain information on software products for use in Special Education. The site covers Dyslexia, LD and reading difficulties, with two "textHELP" programs, and also physical access problems, with a range of single switch, and on screen keyboard programs.
This is a fairly new site, and to promote visitors the site owners are currently making a Windows Screen Reader available free for download, and also offering a CD-ROM with MultiMedia demonstrations to interested schools, colleges, universities and support groups.
A discussion group, and notification of web changes are also available.
The software offered at this site is Windows compatible, and can be networked. This is a commercial site, but offers software for people with disabilities that can be hard or difficult to find elsewhere. Schools with computer facilities should check it out. The software is available in both Windows 3.1 and Win95. Their catalogue can be ordered online.
The free TextHELP! software is a Win95 version with an 8-bit Male voice. 16-bit male and female voices are available from their catalogue (Win3.1 and Win95).
