Freedom Scientific was founded in 2000 by combining three companies: Blazie Engineering, Henter-Joyce and Arkenstone. Each played a pivotal role in creating the foundational success of Freedom Scientific by bringing forth complementary products: screen reading software; optical character recognition (OCR) software; and hardware in the form of a Braille display. Freedom later acquired Ai Squared, a successful company whose main product was screen magnification software.
Today, Freedom Scientific has grown to be the largest worldwide manufacturer of assistive technology products for those with vision impairments, with a comprehensive line of hardware and software products, for all stages of vision loss. For more than 20 years, we have helped people in over 90 countries, with products localized in over 24 languages, achieve their professional and personal goals.
Freedom Scientific provides market-leading software solutions for blind and low vision needs. Our world-renowned JAWS (Job Access With Speech) screen reading software and ZoomText screen magnification software provide users the independence and ability to seek education and obtain or maintain a career after vision loss. JAWS and ZoomText are considered to be the industry standard, and can be widely found in the workplace, schools and universities, government offices, and in the home.
Freedom Scientific’s expansive product line includes both low vision and blindness technology for all aspects of daily living. Our wide range of RUBY, TOPAZ, and ONYX desktop and portable video magnifiers are designed for their ease of use and assist with daily activities at home and in the workplace: reading documents, bank statements, prescriptions, menus, and so much more. Our impressive line of blindness hardware products include refreshable Braille displays and scanning and reading devices, offering many options tailored to fit individual needs.
At Freedom Scientific, we strive to develop the best technological solutions for our blind and low vision customers. As a result, we have close relationships with our valued customers; in fact, many user suggestions have been incorporated into our products.
Our team is passionate about what we do and committed to the communities that we serve.
