Achieving full potential in education and the workplace
Claro Software develops Assistive Technology software for people with disabilities such as print and reading difficulties like dyslexia, to help them achieve all they can.
As an employer you have a legal duty to make reasonable adjustments for people with disabilities, such as dyslexia. Part of these reasonable adjustments can be the provision of software like ClaroRead to your employees, so that they are better able to do their job efficiently and well.
As an employee you want to do your job well and to be able to work with your employer’s IT systems, including Microsoft Office. ClaroRead is designed to work perfectly with mainstream tools like Office and web browsers, while adding powerful features to help you proof, write and consume information accurately.
ClaroRead is designed to be straightforward to deploy and support by your IT staff, and also works perfectly with Dragon from Nuance for speech recognition and screen readers for people with visual disabilities. It fits with your existing IT infrastructure easily and without hassles: you can install and run multiple pieces of AT software alongside ClaroRead.
