Sight and Sound Technology, the UK/Ireland master distributor for ZoomText Magnifier/Reader, is delighted to announce the release of ZoomText 10.
ZoomText 10 is made by Ai Squared - worldwide leaders in screen magnification software for the visually impaired, and it is the latest version of the popular screen magnifier/screen reader. ZoomText makes computers accessible and friendly for Windows users by magnifying and speaking what appears on the screen.
In addition to the already versatile capabilities of ZoomText, the new ZoomText 10 release is full of new features designed to enhance users’ productivity by allowing them to multitask, navigate around the web faster and easier than ever before, take their work with them when they’re away from the computer, and access print material. Additionally, an HD webcam magnifier has been included in Ai Squared’s growing list of accessories.
“In this day and age where everything is accessed online, it’s imperative that the visually impaired have the tools that let them surf the net as quickly as their sighted colleagues,” states David Wu, CEO at Ai Squared. “Not to mention that the need to have access on the go – ZoomText 10 offers so many new and robust features that it’s really going to be a game changer.”
The four new main features in ZoomText 10 are: ZoomText Camera, which allows you to use a webcam along with ZoomText as an inexpensive CCTV alternative; Background Reader, which lets you listen to text spoken aloud in the background while you concentrate on other tasks; Enhanced Web Finder, the ultimate productivity tool for browsing the web and finding information; and finally ZoomText Recorder, which lets you create audio files from any text on screen which you can put on your portable device(s) for access on-the-go.
Glenn Tookey, CEO of Sight and Sound Technology, explains: “ZoomText 10 is a clear step forward for screen magnification and screen reading solutions. All the new features in ZoomText 10 continue to push the functionality of the world’s most popular screen magnifier above and beyond. This latest release of ZoomText reaffirms its position as the leading solution for visually impaired Windows users in the screen magnification/reading market.”
Sight and Sound Technology is currently offering the newly launched ZoomText 10 at the same price as the previous, less advanced version of the software.
For Sight and Sound Technology customers who purchased a full boxed copy of ZoomText 9.1 after 25th October, the upgrade to ZoomText 10 is free.
