ClaroRead Workplace includes powerful new technology that will scan and convert any publication into an editable PDF that can be read out loud with colour highlighting. ClaroRead Workplace ensures that any scanned or inaccessible document will be perfectly reproduced with all pictures, diagrams, columns and text intact.

As ClaroRead Workplace is closely integrated with Microsoft Word and Internet Explorer, practically any text can be spoken aloud by this powerful software. ClaroRead Workplace can assist in delivering high quality documents by using the scanned proofreading capability.

Users can also benefit from the addition of included visual tools that colour, highlight and focus on difficult to read text as it is spoken by the computer. Words can also be spoken back as they are typed, ensuring the accuracy of written papers, tests and study notes.

How Access to Work can help

The UK Access to Work (AtW) scheme supports employers providing Assistive Technology like ClaroRead to members of staff. Through the Department of Work and Pensions you can get funding to help buy software and training.

  • 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 can get software to help you with your reading and writing. Our programs can read out Microsoft Word, Outlook, PDF files and web pages. We can also tint the screen for you so it is easier to read. It is all simple and reliable so you can trust it to help.
  • As an AtW assessor you know you can recommend ClaroRead to anyone with dyslexia or stress and it will help them with their written work.
