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


Sonocent = learning independence

More than 9/10 of our users say they are comfortable taking notes independently now they have Sonocent. Most are students with learning differences, ranging from ADHD to Asperger syndrome. In class, they simply record and highlight the key moments with a click or a tap. Later, they can add detail to these Projects at their own pace.


Sonocent = happier students

For students with learning differences, note taking can be a source of anxiety. But you can change all that with Sonocent. 95% of students say they find it easy to take good notes with the software - up from just 26% from before they started using it.

Note taking strategies: Our proven 4-step formula - explained

Sonocent = better learning outcomes

Your students can achieve more with the notes they take using Sonocent. 

The key moments from classes. Diagrams from whiteboards. Photos and dictations from field trips and placements. Slides, PowerPoints, and PDF handouts...

It's all just a couple of clicks away whenever they need to work on an assignment or revise for a big exam.

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
