ROANOKE, VA. (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 28, 2023
Veracity Verification Solutions, a third-party evaluator of EdTech software solutions, has announced Book Creator’s entrance into the Veracity Marketplace after completion of Veracity’s assessment of the content creation tool by Tools for Schools, Inc. Veracity’s Verification awarded Book Creator its highest ranking achievable in the categories of Accessibility and Data Security.
The Veracity Verification is a rigorous, third-party product assessment conducted by expert educators – called Guardians – to provide reliable, transparent, and unbiased evidence that connects school district staff with verified technologies – informing sound purchasing decisions and accelerating the path to student success.
Book Creator scored 5 out of a maximum score of 5 in Accessibility, with Veracity Guardians raving over the abundance of accessibility tools for users, highlighting speech-to-text and “Read to Me” features – in multiple languages. The product boasts a webpage dedicated to helping teachers with students who have differing learning needs and boasts capabilities including creating books from sign language.
“I loved the feature that allows users to speak what they wanted to type – and this was available in multiple languages! Students can also record audio files instead of typing, and these would be read aloud when the book is read. This product would be very easy to use for students with motor-skill impairment,” noted one Guardian.
“This product would be very valuable for teachers who want to focus on differentiated learning; also, the company provides resources and advice for teachers on this topic in the Learn tab. For so many learners it is important to make them feel successful, rather than feeling as if they are not good enough, and I think this product does that,” exclaimed another.
Book Creator also topped the charts in one of the most coveted categories – Data Security. The vendor has shown extraordinary commitment to student data privacy with third-party certifications in FERPA, COPPA, and CSPC. Book Creator is also fully GDPR compliant.
The report summarized Book Creator as having a very simple and pleasing interface. “Overall, I found this product extremely easy to use – and not only that, extremely easy to use in a way that produced professional-looking books. I think learners will love that they can produce such quality material, especially young learners and struggling learners who don’t always feel like they can take pride in their work,” concluded Guardians.
“We’re delighted to be included in the Veracity Marketplace, and to have scored so highly in accessibility and data security is a real honor. We believe Book Creator is the simplest, most inclusive content creation tool out there, and we have focused hard on making sure we have first-class accessibility options built into the app to ensure every student can access their learning and be successful. We also know how important data security is to school administrators and have done our utmost to prioritize this.
We’re looking forward to working with Veracity to improve Book Creator further, and welcome feedback from anyone who is using Book Creator in their school or district. We’ve spent the last 10 years improving Book Creator alongside educators and we’re not done yet!” Lainey Franks, CEO, Tools for Schools.
