The TouchBook™ enables the reader of normally printed materials to touch the pages and retrieve linked digital content or launch communication applications on a computer. Content owners can converge their print and digital contents to create interactive hybrid workbooks, texts, and supplements. The TouchBook™ currently operates via Windows XP®, Windows Vista®, and OS X®.
Jason E. Barkeloo the President of Somatic Digital states, "We are proud of our acceptance into HP's Developer & Solution Partner Program (DSPP). We are also pleased that HP is helping to extend our focus on providing universally designed solutions that work for everyone by showcasing our technology at the 2007 ATIA Conference.
The TouchBook™, embedded with the TUI technology, may be ideal for providing a multi-modal learning environment to all readers. The TUI allows individual books to be customized to the particular needs of the reader. A properly designed TUI-based TouchBook™ should meet the requirements outlined in the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS) and the inclusive learning requirements of laws such as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA), No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, and Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
