Freedom Scientific today announced that OpenBook 8.0, the latest version of the Companys powerful scanning and reading software that makes printed and electronic text accessible to people who are blind or who have low vision, will be released in December 2007.

Freedom Scientific’s OpenBook 8.0 goes well beyond just making all types of documents readily accessible. This December 2007 release includes new synthesizers, updated optical character recognition (OCR) engines, improved access to online books, common keyboarding with JAWS® and MAGic®, built-in braille support, new low vision features, new reference features, and more. For complete details on all the new features of OpenBook 8.0 go to Enhanced Scanning and Reading Software.

OpenBook customers can take advantage of attractive discounted pricing if they upgrade to OpenBook 8.0 before December 31, 2007. From now until the end of the year, OpenBook customers will be able to do so for only $100. Anyone purchasing or upgrading to OpenBook 7.02 between September 1, 2007, and the December release will be sent OpenBook 8.0 as a free upgrade.

“This next generation of OpenBook will provide users with many new and enhanced features and functions designed to make their reading experience more enjoyable and to significantly enhance their productivity as well,” said Dusty Voorhees, Senior Product Manager at Freedom Scientific. “The many customizable features of OpenBook will enable all users — from novices to the technically-advanced — to read, navigate, and manage all their documents quickly, easily, and in ways that best address their individual needs and preferences.

“Freedom Scientific is pleased to offer this special upgrade pricing through the end of this year as a way of ensuring our loyal OpenBook users have an opportunity to take advantage of and enjoy this newest featured-filled version of the product,” added Voorhees.
