Our reputation is built on creating robust products that are easy to use without forcing individuals into cumbersome proprietary environments while offering the most cost-effective licensing options available anywhere. Premier Literacy’s proven tools truly empower individuals, allowing them to read, write and study more effectively in order to keep up with the accelerating literacy demands of today’s classroom and job market. The escalating pace of the evolution of “digital literacy” means that developing fluency in the use of literacy tools such as these is more important than ever.” Version 12 is the next chapter in our ongoing legacy to improve literacy for everyone.
Premier Literacy’s continuing commitment to standardization ensures our products work with the common file formats found in education and the work place, such as Microsoft Word documents, TXT, RTF, HTML, PDF and audio formats such as MP3 and WAVE. These tools are designed to work with other standard applications, such as email programs, word processors, e-books and web browsers. Our products are also fully compatible with other leading-edge technologies such as interactive whiteboards, netbooks and speech-to-text applications. The Premier Literacy Suite is literally an entire portfolio of reading, writing and study efficiency tools. The applications are all “task specific”, with each being optimized to assist individuals with a broad spectrum of literacy activities, making it genuinely possible and practical for individuals with a wide range of learning styles to be more productive and independent.
