Students can access the software by mouse, touch screen, IntelliKeys or single switch. A unified management system helps the teacher quickly review or print out student performance data. Teachers can determine reading lists and set options that best suit each student's learning style. Choose word-by-word or natural speech narration, select the text highlighting approach and assign tests. eReader software is Windows only, 2000 or higher.
