Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Ai Squared to offer assistive technology products for the vision impaired to a larger consumer market. Algorithmic Implementations, Incorporated, doing business as Ai Squared, began in Atlanta, Georgia in 1985 with one employee and specialized in contact programming. They introduced their flagship product, ZoomText, in 1988 and as the popularity of this product grew, the company shifted its focus to the exclusive development and marketing of software for the visually impaired. They created ZoomText Plus in 1991, the first product to bring screen magnification to the Windows operating system. With increased growth, Ai Squared expanded and relocated their headquarters to southern Vermont in 1992 and continued to introduce innovative new assistive technology products for low vision. Today, they stand as a leader in software products for the visually impaired, offering the highest quality accessibility solutions for all low vision computer users.
The products from Ai Squared are available in 20 languages and are sold in 45 countries throughout the world. They have helped over 100,000 individuals with early vision loss, computer vision syndrome and visual impairments such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. They offer a wide range of screen magnification and screen reading software products to suit every individual low vision need. Their state-of-the-art products include ZoomText, ZoomText USB, the ZoomText Large-Print Keyboard and ZoomText Express. ZoomText is the most popular screen magnifier in the world. The release of ZoomText 10 integrates support for HD webcams as CCTVs with features that include recording text to audio, background reading, and new standards in web navigation with the enhanced WebFinder. The visually impaired can use the ZoomText Camera to zoom in on printed material and to apply high-contrast filters for improved clarity, and listen to ZoomText read in the background while working on other programs or taking notes, with the capability to record these same passages to audio files that can be transported anywhere on a mobile device.
