Disability support in education.

Our software makes educational content accessible - from lecture material to online learning resources.

Create truly inclusive learning environments.

From diagrams on the whiteboard to classroom instruction and online videos - there is certainly no shortage of educational content for students to tap into these days.

But for students with certain disabilities much of this information is delivered in formats that simply aren't accessible.

That's why we created Sonocent Audio Notetaker - software that enables almost any student to capture, engage with and develop a wide array of educational content.

It really works: and we have the proof

 

Disabled students really can take notes independently

The majority of our student users have disabilities which affect their ability to take notes.

And 88%* of those students who use the software regularly say they can now now take notes independently.

This compares to just 43% who could do so prior to using the software!

*All statistics taken from a May 2015 survey into the user habits and perception of 1,624 Audio Notetaker users

Proven to reduce anxiety for many students

When asked why they use Audio Notetaker, 52% of students say it reduces their stress and anxiety when studying.

Many of these students will have previously tried (and failed) to scribble down notes in class.

But now they can listen, secure in the knowledge that everything is being captured for review.

Leads to better organization

Students with certain disabilities have poor working memory or difficulties concentrating.

But with Audio Notetaker they can stay organized by capturing everything, highlighting information to review, and saving for easy retrieval.

It works! 91% of students say their notes are well organized and easy to find with Audio Notetaker.

No need to stand out from the crowd

Not every student is comfortable with being seen using assistive technology.

So we have created a companion app, which students can use without standing out from the crowd.

With the app, students can:

• Highlight the audio that they will want to revisit

• Add images and text alongside their audio

• Share their file with our Audio Notetaker software by Wi-Fi
