Freedom Scientific is offering its software to help students and employees in the US and Canada affected by COVID-19 remain accessible while working and studying from home.

“As we continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19, we want to do our part to lessen the burden for users who are impacted by the sudden need to work and study from home,” said Tom Tiernan, CEO of Vispero.

“Providing equal access during this time is more important than ever.”

Users can access JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion software free of charge until August 31, 2020 by visiting our software portal. If you do not have a college email, simply enter your personal email.

For users outside of the United States and Canada, we are working with our international team to provide a home solution and recommend contacting your local distributor for assistance.
