Premier Literacy announces the release of Version 12.5 of their Premier Literacy Suite of software literacy tools which now includes Task-Oriented Toolbars. Premier Literacy continues to extend its leadership position in the market of literacy learning tools. Kenneth Grisham, President / CEO, elaborates "For over 8 years, Premier Literacy has continued to bring true innovation to the field of literacy technology. 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 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 learning tools such as these is more important than ever. Version 12.5 is the next chapter in our ongoing legacy to improve life-long literacy and learning 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.
Dr. Stephanie Timmer, VP of Research and Development explains the latest innovations. "Our research with students and educators using our technologies led us to develop more intuitive ways to select the "right Premier tool" for a learning activity. With the introduction of our newest task-oriented toolbars for reading, writing, studying and utilities, we've simplified grouping and selecting the preferred Premier applications for a user into those best-suited to the tasks that need to be performed.
The direct result is learning tools that are easier to use than ever before".
