We hope that this new approach will empower all learning organisations to become really serious about embedding the creation and provision of alternative formats into every aspect of their school, college or university.
(PRWEB) February 3, 2010
Dolphin Computer Access has today announced the immediate availability of EasyConverter v5 for only £1 or $1 per student. The first total alternative format creation solution of its kind, Dolphin’s EasyConverter software is taking dramatic steps to empower schools, colleges and universities to embed a ‘total’ alternative format ethos into every aspect of their organisation.
Marking a move away from limited on demand provision, the new low cost per student approach enables learning providers to provide an environment where teaching professionals, support staff and students themselves, can create MP3, large print, DAISY talking book and Braille materials. Learners with low vision, blindness, low literacy, English as a second language, dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties are all set to immediately benefit.
EasyConverter is the essential toolkit for creating alternative format learning materials, and is already empowering schools, colleges and universities to provide accessible MP3 audio, large print, Braille and DAISY talking books.
Craig Mill from the JISC Regional Support Centre remarked that “EasyConverter makes the process accurate and simple”. Whilst international five times Olympic gold medal winner, Sir Steve Redgrave reports “Dolphin EasyConverter makes providing alternative format materials quick and easy”.
Dolphin’s Managing Director, Noel Duffy explains why Dolphin has developed this new approach.
“EasyConverter’s £1 per student annual subscription provides greater flexibility for schools, colleges and universities. No matter what size your learning organisation, for just £1 or $1 per student per year you can deliver a ‘total’ alternative format solution to the provision of MP3, large print, DAISY talking book and Braille.”
“We hope that this new approach will empower all learning organisations to become really serious about embedding the creation and provision of alternative formats into every aspect of their school, college or university.”
The Dolphin EasyConverter Annual Education Subscription is available to UK, US & Swedish schools, colleges and universities for £1, $1 or 10kr per student, per year respectively. To learn more about EasyConverter or the annual education subscription visit http://www.YourDolphin.com/Altformats.
