Lebanon, NH (PRWEB) March 3, 2009
All Educational Software has added software for the deaf and hard of hearing. We are pleased to offer software from IDRT for the deaf and hearing impaired. The Institute for Disabilities Research & Training is dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities through research and development, training, technical assistance, and advocacy. They specialize in research and development efforts on behalf of children and adults who are deaf and hard of hearing and have particular expertise in the development of computer software and other products in American Sign Language (ASL), in research on speech recognition, telecommunications, and closed captioned television, in training related to emergency response for people with hearing losses, and in the Americans with Disabilities Act.
For the past ten years, IDRT has been a leader in the creation of software that is user-friendly to deaf people. The software offered by All Educational Software may be enjoyed by deaf, as well as by hearing people. Most families that have deaf members have hearing members as well. Typically, deaf children have hearing parents, and deaf parents have hearing children. IDRT wants the whole family to be able to play and learn together. They achieve universal accessibility by having video or animation of deaf signers interpreting auditory information. Picture menus and icons are used with deaf children to help them navigate the programs. IDRT's software has received international recognition, including the prestigious Codie award for Paws Signs Stories (a.k.a. ASL for Kids) in 2001 under the Special Needs category.
All Educational Software offers Paws Signs Stories, Baby First Book of Signs, Con-SIGN-tration games and many software games to learn signs for everyday words, holidays, vacations and more. Available online at http://www.AllEducationalSoftware.com, we now offer over 30 different deaf software selections, including several in Spanish.
Software for the deaf and hard of hearing by IDRT joins our selection of American Sign Language software and provides a comprehensive base of computer learning software for the hearing impaired. All Educational Software continues to strive to provide software to learners of all ages and needs.
