So, how is this going to help your students?
A student who likes to listen to text. Take any document; a chapter of a text book, a secure PDF document, or even scan a classroom handout. Open it in EasyConverter and choose to convert it to MP3 format. Then email the file to your student or copy onto a USB memory stick, and they can upload the document to their phone and start listening.
A student who prefers Large Print. EasyConverter will convert any document into large print, and most importantly, maintain the correct page numbering (page 1 of the original document may convert into 3 pages of large print, which will be numbered 1a, 1b, 1c)
A Student who uses Braille. Any document can quickly and easily be converted to Braille. Once the Braille preferences are set, classroom teachers, teachers aides or anyone else can create formatted Braille versions of typical day to day classroom documents.
