The Stump Stand has a minimalist approach to design and functionality. The ergonomic stand reduces the risk of repetitive strain injury that has been linked with texting on mobile phones and tablets. It has a unique design that allows hands-free viewing positions: ramp, lean and upright. The ramp position is ideal for laying your device horizontally for typing, emailing or browsing the internet. The lean position is great for watching videos or reading eBooks. The upright position is mostly used for gaming or charging. The Stump Stand is made from a soft silicone material and has a weighted bottom for increased stability, allowing the stand to grip tightly to the surface it is on to prevent slips.stump-3positionsblck

The Stump Stand is compatible with all devices up to .5 inches in thickness and is a perfect stand for iPads, iPhones, Kindles and various other Android tablets and smartphones. Plus, it is available in 7 different colours so there’s a perfect stand for everyone: black, white, royal blue, red, pink, green and sea glass.

Assistive Technology Apps

This month, iansyst launched a brand new and exciting page on Dyslexic.com – a page dedicated to providing information about the latest assistive technology apps for iOS and Android phones and tablets! Assistive technology (AT) apps are becoming increasingly popular to help those with dyslexia, visual impairment, physical difficulties and many more disabilities. Whether they are being used on their own or to accompany a full desktop version, AT apps are a great tool to help make smartphones and tablets accessible. You can view the page here.

The page currently features a variety of app categories, including text-to-speech, concept mapping and notetaking support. Some of these you can even download for free on the App Store or Google Play. Our Apps page will continuously be updated to promote the ever growing range of apps on the market, so keep an eye out for future additions to the page.

The Apps page also features iansyst’s own apps that we have developed, including our popular literacy support app, AcceleRead AcceleWrite. AcceleRead AcceleWrite is a fun and easy to use, interactive certified remedial reading scheme designed for use on an iPad. The app provides ‘virtual’ cards, each with a series of sentences which the student will read one by one until they have memorised the sentence. They then tap on the screen to input the sentence exactly as it appeared to them. The integrated text-to-speech will enable them to listen to what they have typed to check for errors. This process is repeated until the sentence is correct and they can move onto the next level. There are eight levels of increasing difficulty and your progress is tracked in your results page, showing you how many attempts were made at each level and which levels have been completed.

iansyst are happy to provide support and advice about the ever growing range of apps and which could be beneficial to you. Please get in touch if you would like more information:
