Finally assistive technology that will fit in your schools budget

Premier Assistive Technology is pleased to announce the release of Premier Tools for Chrome 2.0. Premier has just added two new products to its award-wining suite of literacy tools for Google Chrome. The new chrome literacy suite now includes a Talking Pointer and a Talking Word Processor, with built in word prediction, writing stats, dictionary, and dictation features.

Premier has been building assistive technology for over 15 years and the Chrome Literacy Suite is the latest in a long history of task-orientated learning tools. The Premier Toolbar Extension is a convenient way to access all of the Premier Literacy Tools for Google Chrome. Using only a single login, you can quickly gain access to any of Premier’s Tools: One Click Reader, One Click Dictionary, One Click Summary, One Click Dictation, Worksheet Wizard, Talking Word Processor, and Talking Pointer. With an easy-to-use license from Premier, you’ll be able to use any of these tools on Chromebooks, PCs, and Macs from anywhere using the Chrome browser.

Talking Pointer: The popular Premier Talking Pointer is great for reading web content. It converts the mouse pointer into a reading tool – simply point and listen.

Talking Word Processor: The Talking Word Processor is a full-featured word processor that can handle a wide variety of documents, including PDF files.  It includes word prediction, content summarization, built-in dictation, and an integrated dictionary.

One Click Reader:  To have any text read aloud with highlighted tracking, simply select text from any webpage or document and click the Reader icon. Change the voice, the speaking rate, and other personalized reading features.

One Click Dictionary:  Definitions at your fingertips! Select any word from text you are viewing and click the Dictionary icon to get the definition or have it read aloud to you. You can even speak to the Dictionary and have it look up any word. The One Click Dictionary also combines the power of a Thesaurus and Interlink vocabulary for superior writing assistance.

One Click Summary: If you need to focus on the most important information in an article, Summary is the tool for you. Select any amount of text from a passage, click the Summary icon and paste it into the One Click Summary tool. Set the Summary to any percentage, and within seconds you can have the summarized version of the text read aloud to you. One Click Summary makes quick work of studying and research involving large amounts of information.

One Click Dictation: Why type when you can just talk? One Click Dictation lets you talk instead of type! In fact, there’s no need to “train” it for your voice. With outstanding accuracy, One Click Dictation even handles different spellings for U.S. and U.K. English. You can proofread your dictated text aloud and copy it into any other application like email, a word processor, or an online forum!

Worksheet Wizard: Worksheet Wizard is a great tool for working with any type of worksheet. Simply access PDF files from any source (including scanners or phone apps) and load them into the Worksheet Wizard. Flexible capabilities allow you to have text read aloud to you; edit text; copy and paste graphics; add annotations; and save your changes directly to the PDF file. It includes robust word prediction and even has the ability to dictate text.
