Fusion: A Seamless Integration of JAWS and ZoomText
Fusion is the latest development from Freedom Scientific, now part of the VFO Group. Fusion is the ultimate accessibility tool for individuals with any level of vision impairment. Fusion provides the best of both worlds – ZoomText®, with its screen magnification and visual enhancements for screen viewing ease, coupled with the power and speed of JAWS® for screen reading functionality.
Fusion is opening up new service delivery options for Education Departments, who can now manage a single Fusion licence, which can be deployed across whole school systems either as JAWS or ZoomText as their student population dictates. These new new more flexible licencing options based on a subscription model, will enable teachers and support staff to also access each product, as well as cater for BYOD (bring your own device) applications. There is also an option for families of students to obtain low cost versions of the software their child uses for home use.
By blending ZoomText and JAWS together, Fusion has flexible, high-quality speech using Eloquence and Vocalizer Expressive, powerful keyboard access including navigation on the web, and a wide range of customization options. For students with progressive vision loss, there is now a seamless transition from magnification to screen-reading.
Fusion is the perfect solution for schools, colleges and universities, agencies, training centers, and businesses where individuals with vision loss are served. A single installer and one license gives access to both ZoomText and JAWS individually, or together when run as the combined solution – Fusion.
Fusion is available in two versions: Professional and Home Edition. A Professional license is used by schools, businesses, and other organizations. The Home Edition – for non-commercial use – is licensed to individuals for use on their personal computer.
