Assistive Technology Software
AMAC members with Deluxe and USG memberships have access to download a number of assistive technology software programs that provide support for students with print related disabilities, including programs with text to speech and synchronized visual highlighting. Students download software from the AMAC Student Download Center. Disability Service Providers can download software from AMAC Orders.
AMAC currently provides students with several iPad apps upon request. Students can request the ClaroPDF app or ClaroSpeak app for iPad when logged in at the AMAC Student Download Center. Both apps include text to speech functionality for reading and highlighting PDFs on the iPad.
