​Brand New: ClaroRead Version 7

claroYesterday Claro Software announced the release of a brand new version of their popular literacy support software, ClaroRead Version 7. ClaroRead is a hugely popular text-to-speech program that helps users of all ages and abilities to read and write. Version 7 has bought lots of new and improved features to the assistive technology software, making this version the best yet. It has been developed in line with Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge and is fully compatible with the new operating system.

ClaroRead Version 7 includes new features to enhance reading and proofing for users. You are now able to adjust text widths and add in one or two narrow columns, which can make long pieces of text easier to read. There is also a new option to remove highlighting which helps users to proofread without distraction. By using the ‘change text width’ and ‘highlight none’ options, your word processor transforms into a scrolling text reader.

Version 7 includes a number of bundled programmes, including Claro Voice Setup. This allows you to download up to 80 high-quality voices. The voices available include different accents and genders of English, plus French, German, Spanish and many other voices. This is extremely helpful for users where English is a second language (ESL). Claro AudioNote is also bundled into ClaroRead Version 7. This software helps users who struggle with notetaking and enables them to record meeting and lecture audio notes directly into their Microsoft Word documents or PowerPoint presentations. Recordings can be sent to Dragon NaturallySpeaking to be converted into editable text. Claro AudioNote helps users with dyslexia, where information is often difficult to take in. Other small programs are bundled into ClaroRead Version 7: ClaroIdeas (mind mapping tool), ScreenRuler (reading ruler and screen colour tinting tool) and ClaroCapture (study tool).

ClaroRead Cloud is a new and exciting feature that allows you to install your copy of ClaroRead onto multiple machines. This is very handy for those who need to use ClaroRead in the office or at school and at home. ClaroRead Cloud also enables those who have purchased ClaroRead for Windows to download ClaroRead for Mac (and vice versa).

The new version of ClaroRead also includes numerous improvements such as an updated phonetic and dyslexic spelling list – there are now 50,000 custom spelling corrections! A full list of new features and technical changes can be viewed on Claro Software’s Technical Support page.
