Helping people with dyslexia read, write and study

Claro Software develops Assistive Technology, software for people with disabilities such as print and reading difficulties like dyslexia, to help them achieve all they can.

Claro Software was founded by entrepreneur Dave Stevens and assistive technology expert Professor Paul Blenkhorn in 2004. From 2018 Claro Software was owned by leading Norwegian assistive technology company, Lingit AS, and from 2021 Claro Software is proud to be part of the world-class Texthelp family.

We are experts in speech synthesis, word prediction, spell checking and switch access, and combine them to make innovative, easy-to-use products on Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac, Google Chromebook, iPad and iPhone, Android, and on the Web.

We have an international network of partners who support our users and sell our products world-wide.
