Penfriend Specialist Centres

Penfriend Specialist Centres are staffed by experts both in special needs and in the use of Penfriend. You can see our software in action and obtain advice on its applicability to your needs. They are always up-to-date with our product range, and are ideal places for you to learn about, and discuss, Penfriend.

We have been asked by several assessment and educational centres for a system that ensures the latest versions of our software is readily available to download.

In response to these demands Penfriend has created an innovative scheme to keep all our customers up-to-date with the latest versions of Penfriend. For an annual payment of £95 we will provide you with licences for Penfriend XL for up to 20 computers on one site, for demonstration, training or assessment purposes.

In addition, Penfriend Centres are entitled to a 30% discount on further Penfriend products purchased by the Centre. If you are interested in becoming a Penfriend Centre, send us an order and in return you will receive the following:

- A free download (or update) of the latest version of Penfriend XL,
- 20 additional licences,
- The latest version of Penfriend XL portable,
- Information on tutorials and how to make the most of Penfriend XL.

Penfriend XL has changed a great deal and now offers a range of significant enhancements that can benefit a wide-range of users. With new and improved features such as homophone support, speak on hover for the on-screen keyboard, quality text-to-speech and one of the most accurate contextualised word prediction engines, Penfriend is the perfect tool to support literacy as well as supporting those users who have more complex mobility difficulties.

Penfriend also offers 24 hour support via our step-by-step on-line video tutorials via the Penfriend Blog; from creating lexicons to using homophones you can find out how to maximise the potential of Penfriend.
