PowerTalk with Tar Heel Reader




Tar Heel Reader is...


...a collection of free, easy-to-read, and accessible books on a wide range of topics. The books may be downloaded as slide shows in PowerPoint, Impress, or Flash format. Each book can be speech enabled and accessed using multiple interfaces, including touch screens, the IntelliKeys with custom overlays, and 1 to 3 switches.


Tar Heel Reader books are engaging and beautifully illustrated.
