Texthelp acquires the Lingit Group

Today, we are excited to announce that Texthelp has acquired the Lingit Group. This means that the Claro Software, LexAble and Lingit tools are now part of the Texthelp family.

Texthelp and the Lingit Group’s vision and purpose are strongly aligned. We share a belief that everyone has the right to understand and be understood.

Champions of choice for disabled students

We understand that the impact of a disability on a student is unique and therefore the AT solution needs to be tailored. Together, Texthelp and Lingit are committed to making sure that the range of tools that end users can currently choose from is maintained. In the future, we will be able to use our combined capabilities and knowledge to add to the range of tools available, ensuring the best possible outcomes for students.

Lingit tools already help millions of students across Europe. Texthelp and Lingit can work together to bring these tools to students in more countries, making an impact on even more people’s lives.

For assessors and students, there will be no noticeable change. How students are supported by Texthelp, Claro Software and LexAble tools will remain the same, as will the experience of Needs Assessors and the wider community.

Future product developments

In the future, our combined expertise and knowledge will drive more rapid product improvements for many more people around the world. One of the first examples of this will be an accelerated delivery of ClaroRead 10 to the market (more information on that coming soon).

Business as usual

This is the first step in an exciting journey for us all. But for now, it’s very much business as usual. We have compiled this FAQ, if you have any other questions you can reach out to any of your key contacts in each company as you would normally do:
