    Having a son with dyslexia I am looking at forming a support group for far North Queensland and providing the occasional educational seminar. Would like to know the cost of workshops, people numbers required and if you would travel to Townsville.

    We have Texthelp on our student computers at the University of Otago.

    A student is experiencing a problem where he selects text and the reader suddenly stops randomly, and he has to restart it. Do you know of this problem and a possible solution?

    Another question:
    I have asked our Software Procurement staff whether our site licence goes as far as allowing installation on a student’s private computer (or can it only be installed on university computers)?

    • Hi Steve. I will answer your second question first. Your institution has the standard site licence for Tertiary College / Higher Ed, and this does not cover home use. So the software can only be installed on university computers. You would need to upgrade to the Tertiary College/University Higher Ed and Home Site Licence to allow installation on all student computers. An alternative for an individual student could be to access Read&Write for Google if they use the Chrome browser and Google Drive – for more information for an individual student see https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/readwrite-for-google/inoeonmfapjbbkmdafoankkfajkcphgd and http://rw.texthelp.com/drive/Support/premiumupgrade, and for information for an institution see http://www.spectronics.com.au/product/readwrite-for-google

      In relation to your first question, we will need more information so we can help you out. Can you please email Terry Prescott (tech support here at Spectronics) via terryp@spectronics.com.au with the following: computer operating system the student is using and what version it is, any other specs about the student’s computer eg processor, memory etc, what version of Read&Write (I am guessing 11.5 but it would be good to confirm) the student has, and what software / programs the student is using when this happens eg is the student using Word, a PDF file, on the web, or does it happen all the time across all programs. Terry will then be able to help you out, ask more questions if needed, and get the problem solved. Cheers, Greg.
