GUIDE is unique among assistive technology software in that it requires very little training while still providing access to a full range of computer tasks. This product is also an innovative solution for those who have little or no previous experience with computers.

Jerry Swerdlick, CEO of EVAS said, "GUIDE is unique among assistive technology software in that it requires very little training while still providing access to a full range of computer tasks. This product is also an innovative solution for those who have little or no previous experience with computers. This was confirmed when GUIDE received the Simply the Best Award from the Royal National Institute for the Blind in the UK."

GUIDE is an ideal solution for the blind or visually impaired, older adults and those that have difficulty working in Windows, or those users who:

  • Have little or no experience with computer technology
  • Have little or no technical ability
  • Lack the motivation or capability to acquire or retain detailed technical knowledge
  • Have tried other assistive technology but are unable to learn or use them effectively
  • Want an easy to use set of applications with Large Print/Speech Access outside of Windows

Using GUIDE's well-designed programs, and built-in large print and speech access, documents can be created, e-mails can be sent/received, printed material can be scanned and read, the web can be surfed and much more.

The look and operation of GUIDE can be fully adjusted to suit individual needs. Among other things, users can change the screen background color, text color, and font and select a male or female voice. Magnification and voices can also be independently controlled and menus customized to suit user preferences. Additional interactive features include news reader, internet radio and pod casts, audio and graphic file capabilities, calendar, address book, dictionary/thesaurus and calculator.

"With the simple to use GUIDE software, it will be easier than ever for people who are visually impaired and have no computer technology experience to communicate effectively and gain independence and a better quality of life" said Jerry Swerdlick, EVAS' CEO.

EVAS also announced today availability of its new Value Series Systems.
