New High Tech lab-Student Services Center
AHEAD​ was just contacted by Freedom Scientific with the following announcement, that we think might be very useful for some of you and the students you work with: 

Freedom Scientific is offering those in the US and Canada a Free Home License of JAWS, ZoomText, or Fusion which will expire June 30, 2020.

If you are suddenly at home with no access to your AT software, we have you covered.

We know many of you must remain at home and will need to continue to work or attend school remotely. To ensure that your life remains accessible we are offering those in the US and Canada a Free Home License of JAWS, ZoomText, or Fusion which will expire June 30, 2020.

For those outside of North America, Freedom Scientific and our international distributors are working together to provide home solutions for our customers during the COVID-19 crisis. Please contact your states distributor if you need assistance connecting to school or work from home.
