Newsletter of ELR Software Pty Ltd

ABN 67 090 738 702

ELR Software combines the skills of speech pathologists and software designers to create software for speech, language and literacy intervention. Our programs may be used within therapy, to increase efficiency in service delivery using the Internet and CD based materials, and to improve access to the Internet for people with special needs. We are also available as consultants to clinicians and research projects in the fields of literacy and accessibility issues associated with the Internet.

The aim of this newsletter is to inform you of developments and changes to our major products eLr (Extra Language Resources) and EIA (Enhancing Internet Access). We welcome the opportunity for feedback and questions, and will be pleased to consider including reader contributions and announcements.

This Newsletter (and previous editions) is available online at www.elr.com.au/news and an email version is sent monthly to members of our mailing list (See Subscribing/Unsubscribing).

  1. New eLr Materials

    This month's edition of eLr contains new materials of a slightly different character than usual. Instead of adding new tasks, we have added a "Help" section to each of the 42 models. On the top right side of all task screens is now a [Help] button (with a question mark on it). Clicking this button shows/hides a "popup" box with 3 tabbed sections - Using this Model, Controls, and Tips.

    This new help system has been some time in development and still needs a bit more polishing in places. But we felt it best to let users start trying it as soon as it was functional. We always welcome feedback, so if after reading some of the information especially the Tips, you feel you have other ideas to add, please email or phone us.

  2. Workshops in New Zealand

    The New Zealand workshops are close to being finalised. Dates and locations are outlined in the Calendar section below, starting times are to be confirmed. Please contact us if you'd like more details.

  3. Free Downloads

    ELR now has a number of free or evaluation files available for downloading directly from our website. Please see www.elr.com.au/downloads.htm for specific details. For other supporting materials and documents available for free download, please see www.elr.com.au/support.htm.
