FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ai Squared/Freedom Scientific Releases Fusion 11
Fusion 11 Brings ZoomText and JAWS Together(St. Petersburg, Florida - May 30, 2017) Ai Squared® and Freedom Scientific® today announced the release of Fusion 11 for Windows®, bringing together the two leading accessibility software programs for the visually impaired – ZoomText and JAWS® - into a single package. This powerful combination of products in one installation is ideal for individuals or organizations who benefit by having access to the world’s most popular screen magnification and screen reading software. The simplicity of a single installation and authorization of all three products is a huge advantage for schools, training centers, and businesses, where users with a wide range of needs may be served. “Fusion is the single product that covers all levels of vision loss and computer skill,” says Eric Damery, Freedom Scientific’s Vice President of Product Management. “With the addition of Ai Squared to the VFO™ family last year, a top priority for the release of Fusion 11 was meeting the needs of customers wishing to have access to both ZoomText and JAWS.”
Significant advantages and features of Fusion 11 include:
- Single Installer providing three distinct products – ZoomText 11, JAWS 18, plus the ability to run them together as Fusion 11
- Simplified product authorization, activating all three products with a single authorization code
- Flexible, high quality speech using Eloquence and Vocalizer Expressive
- Fast navigation and reading on the web using simplified keyboard commands
- New ZoomText toolbar – streamlined and fully keyboard accessible
- Magnification, screen reading, and Braille output in all combinations
In training centers, schools, and places of employment, Fusion will be the perfect fit providing the most flexibility. Since these products are widely accepted and known by the vast number of visually impaired users, it is the only product needed to meet the needs of all levels of visual impairments.
“Fusion is the perfect option to help our ZoomText customers who need more extensive navigation from the keyboard, and speech from a screen reader” says Scott Moore, Ai Squared’s Vice President of Marketing. “We want to make sure that users of ZoomText have the best experience when running standalone or together with JAWS.”Fusion licenses are available in Professional and Home Editions, available on DVD or download from the ZoomText website.
