As the global impact of COVID-19 (the coronavirus) continues, Vispero is taking steps to ensure you, our customers, have the products and information needed to complete school and work tasks during this time. We are offering support in the following ways.
Free Access to JAWS, ZoomText, and Fusion through our Sponsored Software Licenses
Free licenses are available for customers in different ways during this COVID-19 crisis. First, if you have a qualifying email address from a college in the United States, you may already be entitled to get a free Home Annual license each year. This is a program that has been in place for quite some time now for all students, staff, and faculty at educational institutions within the U.S. that have up-to-date multi-user licenses. Enter your school email on our Freedom Scientific Software Licensing Portal to see if you qualify for Free software on your personal computers at home.
If you do not qualify for the free annual license outlined above, we have created a new short term Home Annual license that will expire on June 30, 2020 in order to accommodate the vast number of those (all students in every grade, in college, or workers displaced from the office), who are now forced to remain home. This license is available via the same sponsored software license page for everyone in the United States and Canada at this time.
Additional information is available at the Freedom Scientific website. If you live outside the U.S. and Canada, please contact the distributor in your country for international opportunities.
Remote Desktop and Citrix are not supported with these licenses. If you need this solution, reach out to our Customer Service department at 727-803-8000 for assistance.
Connect and Learn with the Freedom Scientific Training Team
We understand these are challenging times, and are committed to staying connected and giving you the support you need. That’s why every Tuesday and Thursday at 3:00 P.M. Eastern for the foreseeable future, we’ll host a new event, “Connect and Learn with the Freedom Scientific Training Team.”
We’ll provide training resources and information based around the FS products and mainstream applications you use every day, plus answer your questions. The first session takes place on Tuesday, March 24 at noon Eastern. We’ll discuss setting up accessible typing applications you can use to learn and practice typing skills with JAWS.
Join us Thursday when we’ll provide information on accessing our FS Training Center and offer valuable assistive technology learning resources. Registration is not required. Follow the link in the post to access this event.
Watch for new blog posts each Monday outlining topics for the week, and join us tomorrow, March 24, for “Connect and Learn with the Freedom Scientific Training Team.” We look forward to connecting with you!
