FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JAWS Screen Reader and ZoomText Screen Magnification Software Now Freely Available in Hungary for Visually Impaired
(Barendrecht, NL and St. Petersburg, FL, USA - July 30, 2018)
Freedom Scientific is pleased to announce its partnership with IT Foundation for the Visually Impaired - INFOALAP in Hungary, to provide the world’s most popular screen reader, JAWS®, and screen magnifier ZoomText®, at no cost to individuals and organizations throughout Hungary.
This important milestone follows similar announcements to provide free access to JAWS and ZoomText: in 2014, by the Colombian Government for all citizens of Colombia; and in 2016, by ONCE in Spain for all ONCE members. With today’s announcement, individuals and legal entities that educate and employ visually impaired persons, will gain free access to these assistive technology products, each with over 25 years of history, improving access to Microsoft® Windows® and the applications they wish to use.
"Working closely with our partners, we are excited to expand the reach of fully localized versions of JAWS and ZoomText to users in other countries. We have had a presence in Hungary in the past, but this agreement will greatly enable access to our empowering technology for all Hungarian citizens," explained Miguel Abdo, Vice President, Software Business Division of VFO™, the company behind Freedom Scientific.
