What is a Premier Key to Access?
The USB Premier device can be carried on a keychain and contains a collection of tools designed to make any PC computer accessible. The desired software does not have to be installed on the computer. This software includes Scan and Read Pro; Universal Reader Plus; E-Text Reader; Premier Predictor Pro; Ultimate Talking Dictionary; Talking Word Processor; PDF Magic Pro; PDF Equalizer ML; Text-to-Audio and Talking Calculator (a computer is not part of this award).
A student utilizing this assistive technology will become self-reliant. A Premier Literacy Macintosh application is now available. The Literacy Productivity “Mac Pack” software, which must be installed on the computer, contains the same applications as the USB Premier device for the PC described above (a computer is not part of this award).
