Accessing Edmark(r) Software

The following Edmark adaptations have been created using IntelliTools products and Tack-Tiles. The Edmark adaptations and how to use them will be the main focus of this presentation. The exciting aspect of these adaptations it is not necessary for the instructor to tactualize the overlays. This frequently took a great amount of time. If an instructor has a Tack-Tiles set all they need to do is download the software and print out the overlays. The instructor then matches the Braille Tack-Tiles with the printed overlays.
