  • 1. ************************************************************************** PRESS INFORMATION ************************************************************************** Clicker 5 now available for Macintosh OS X Crick Software is pleased to announce the launch of the Macintosh version of Clicker 5. Clicker is an award-winning and highly acclaimed writing and multimedia tool for pupils of all ages and abilities. Used on over 70,000 computers, version 5 has been completely rewritten, and builds on the tried-and-tested success of Clicker, using the latest technology to make the program even easier to use. Clicker 5 utilizes many of the Mac qualities, with easily integrated digital photos, MP3 files, and QuickTime movies. A brand new speech engine gives the software extremely natural- sounding speech, and images from the new picture library look great on a Macintosh screen. Close integration with Crick’s popular LearningGrids website enables teachers to access free online curriculum materials directly within Clicker 5. For students with physical disabilities, Clicker 5 is fully accessible – switch users can now even create their own talking books, including the recording of their own sounds. Alongside the Mac release of Clicker 5 come a number of Clicker 5 enhanced resources, including the award-winning Planet Wobble and Find Out and Write About series. Clicker 5 has been very well received, with a number of Local Authorities making authority- wide purchases for all of their schools. Many schools have also upgraded directly and in the first year of release, over 50,000 licences are already being used in UK schools.
