Read:OutLoud University Edition eBook Reader now available

From the press release:

Don Johnston just announced its new Read:OutLoud University Edition eBook Reader at the AHEAD Conference in Denver, Colorado. (Association on Higher Education and Disability)

The Read:OutLoud University Edition eBook reader is accessible reading software to help individuals and postsecondary students with disabilities navigate the latest eBooks and textbooks and hear text read aloud. Thousands of college students, transitioning high school seniors and veterans (wounded warriors) have reading and physical disabilities that make it difficult to read standard print. These individuals will find Read:OutLoud to be a versatile reading tool that includes an accessible web browser and helpful study tools to perform research online and prepare for exams.

Here's the price list. The single license price is ridiculous.  Why do they hate individuals so?

University and college Disability Student Service (DSS) offices can fulfill this obligation, save time, money and paperwork through a Read:OutLoud University Edition Campus-Wide License. This license allows for installation on every campus computer and individual student laptops. The software runs on Mac OS 10.4+, Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. Campus licenses start at $2,999 for total school enrollment under 10,000 or $4,999 for enrollment over 10,000. Single licenses cost $319. An online demo and 'Train in 30' tutorial get students and staff using the eBook reader fast. Visit or call 1-800-999-4660 to request a quote.

About Nate Hoffelder (11464 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
