Reviews from users of EasyConverter:
I have found EasyConverter brilliant to use, after some initial teething problems on school networks, and it certainly speeds up the production of materials.

We will be giving residents the opportunity to receive information, that is normally only available in print, as an MP3 file or on CD.
This has been made possible by the introduction of newly purchased software that allows us to convert a wide range of text documents into audio files, making it easier for a whole range of people for whom printed formats would be a barrier to being involved.
We will be using this software to update residents as and when requested, with minutes of meetings, newsletters, new policies and procedures to encourage engagement from groups such as, the visually impaired, young people, during training courses and sign-ups as well as for those who would just find it easier to listen to rather than read through papers.

First impressions of Dolphin EasyConverter are very appealing. It is set out clearly and simply and the layout is user friendly.
Using the MP3 and DBT is quick and easy. Both pick up any tags added to pictures making any work produced fully accessible.
The scanner is very accurate when scanning in text and not too much editing has to take place.
The large print option did everything I needed it to. I especially liked the automatic page numbering system.
The overall benefit of Dolphin EasyConverter is that you are buying one piece of software with so many different possibilities. In an educational setting, where there are a number of students all wanting the same document but needing different formats, this software should be able to meet most needs. On the whole I found EasyConverter clear, user friendly and straight forward to use. I think it has a lot of potential.

Students are less likely to be put off studying by their learning difficulties and are more likely to be attentive, as they are getting better quality materials to work with in the format they need. We think that EasyConverter will improve teacher motivation too, as all staff want to see their students doing well. Anything that helps that happen has to be good.

With EasyConverter I like that you can see where you are in the process and that you can save a project and come back to finish later. I like having all the processes involved in the task of producing the final product brought together in one place. I think it is simple to use. I always avoided audio in the past as it was time consuming and the results weren’t usually that good. I was usually too embarrassed to give the tapes to my students. However, with Daisy and MP3 that is no longer a concern.

EasyConverter is an exciting new piece of software with the potential to transform the production of accessible learning materials for students with visual and print impairments. The ability to convert documents swiftly and accurately into a range of alternative formats opens up a whole range of new possibilities for meeting needs on an individual basis.
