Texthelp Systems

Texthelp designs software and technology for people with reading and writing difficulties. Set up in 1996, it first developed software to improve dyslexic pupils’ reading and comprehension skills. Now its products are aimed at anyone with reading difficulties, including those for whom English is a foreign language. Text-to-speech software for websites and scanners to digitise textbooks help learners ranging from six-year-olds to adults. The company says its products are now used in more than 90% of schools in Kentucky, Toronto and Alberta, which has helped overseas sales grow 61% a year, from £1.8m in 2007 to £4.6m in 2009.
