My students are loving Read&Write Gold. While it is not free, the campus can purchase a Remote User or Home License so you can provide the software for students to take home. Many of our LD students are using it to access textbooks now.

We are looking into making software available to Alt Formats students that will read PDFs (in the event they are not already using a screen
reader) available for both Mac and PC. I've talked to some of you individually, but if you can weigh in on what you are using I'd appreciate it! Right now we show the students NaturalReaders and/or the reader in Adobe.
