A big welcome to our two newest Texthelpers as we set up a dedicated Texthelp team for the very first time in Australia! Meet Greg O’Connor and Barbara Landsberg who joined Texthelp at the beginning of June this year and have clocked up a busy first month already.

They bring with them many years of experience in supporting successful use of inclusive learning technologies, as part of the well-known Spectronics team. Along with their years spent working in schools with students who struggle with literacy. They will now be available in Asia Pacific friendly timezones to assist with any enquiries from across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong.
