Share Article

Premier Literacy continues its long-standing track record for literacy technology innovation with its latest release, Version 14 of the Premier Literacy Suite, spearheaded by the groundbreaking technologies of the new Premier Launch Pad.

Kenneth Grisham, President / CEO, elaborates, “Since 2002, Premier Literacy has continually brought genuine innovation to the field of literacy technologies with a reputation built on creating robust products that are easy to use without forcing institutions and 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 demands of today’s classroom and job market. The accelerating pace of the evolution of 'digital literacy' means that developing fluency in the use of learning tools is becoming a requisite skill at all levels of education and is something that every institution must face. Version 14.0 of the Premier Literacy Suite is the next chapter in Premier's ongoing legacy to improve life-long literacy and learning for everyone."

Mr. Grisham continues, “The Premier Literacy Suite is an entire portfolio of reading, writing and study efficiency tools. These comprehensive technologies encompass all aspects of learning including expanded reading options, comprehensive writing features and optimized study skills. Premier Launch Pad is even compatible with all popular browsers--Internet Explorer®, Firefox and Google Chrome™. When it comes to working in 'the Cloud,' it’s easier than ever to write, refine and post text to emails, online forms/documents, social networking sites and mind mapping tools using the robust capabilities of our Write Now application. The Premier Literacy Suite’s applications can being individually optimized to work with a broad spectrum of learning activities, making it both possible and practical for individuals with a wide range of cognitive styles and abilities to be more productive, independent and most importantly, successful."

"Now the Premier Launch Pad incorporates all of the best features of the Premier Literacy Suite in a single toolbar that stays on the desktop, working seamlessly in concert, side-by-side with all your PC applications allowing users to quickly access BOTH Cloud-based content and Desktop content with equal ease.”

Dr. Stephanie Timmer, VP of Research and Development, elaborates, “Premier Literacy’s commitment to standardization ensures our products 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, speech-to-text and even 'cloud-based' applications. We now have expanded reading options by using the Launch Pad Reader and the Talking Pointer to read virtually ANY type of content! Open a web site, a PDF file an e-book or a even Microsoft Word document, and the Launch Pad Reader and Talking Pointer can read them aloud to you. Premier's new Dynamic Reader can even read text that is traditionally inaccessible (e.g. Flash)!”

Dr. Timmer further explains, “The Premier Launch Pad is even configurable so that administrators can authorize individual applications available for students. This customization capability will help educators address the rapidly emerging market of online testing and the accommodations that must accompany such testing.”

Of course, one of Premier Literacy’s continuing hallmarks is the ongoing commitment to affordability for all users. Creating technology that appeals to all users, not just the niche markets, has enabled Premier to deliver cost effective learning solutions to our customers since 2002. These newest innovations are available across all of their product offerings from the standalone Literacy Productivity Pack to the "In School" and "AT Home" programs that make these tools available to all students everywhere they need them. These innovations even extend to Premier's portable devices, Premier To Go and Key to Access so users can take their tools anywhere they go.

All Premier Literacy tools are compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7.
