ClaroRead 7.1 Released

We are pleased to announce the update of ClaroRead for Windows to Version 7.1.

This version makes it even easier to download extra text to speech voices. It also adds “Scan from Screen” to ClaroRead SE and ClaroRead Standard, speaking any inaccessible text from the screen.

If you are a ClaroRead Plus or ClaroRead Pro user you can get the free update via the ClaroUp updater program.
