  1. 1. imjonathan. hello, Busy biochemist works and studies with Read&Write
  2. 2. Based in Baltimore, Maryland, Jonathan works as a genomics account manager at life sciences company Agilent Technologies. In parallel with this, hes currently studying for his MBA at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, after gaining his PhD at the University of Maryland in 2014. My life is pretty full-on as an employee, a student and a Dad too notes the busy scientist. And as if that wasnt enough to deal with, Jonathans work and studies are made even more challenging by his lifelong dyslexia. As a dyslexic you basically have to work twice as hard, he explains. As an individual you dont t into most normal teaching models and you really depend on the right support and resources to get you through, which Ive been lucky to have. Ive had teachers reading aloud to me, and Ive also used lots of dierent software readers over the years. Today, Jonathan relies on Read&Write thats installed on his PC and Macintosh computers at home and in the oce. If youre dyslexic like me, you really need Read&Write to help you read academic textbooks and research papers and I also use it all the time to proof-read my own work. And while its an integral part of my studies, its equally vital for my job thats heavily email driven. When I compose an email to a colleague or a customer it can look clumsy or disjointed: Read&Write ensures that all my communications have that professional polish. Jonathan particularly welcomes the softwares read-aloud feature that he nds natural and easy to understand: Other screen readers often sound stilted and articial. Its the intonation of a voice that gives words meaning. Read&Write does this really well and I always pick a female voice with a British accent! He also praises the softwares ability to navigate smoothly through PDF documents that contain embedded images something other screen readers often struggle with. I want to stress how fantastic Read&Write is he conrms. This software is just great: its superior to everything else Ive used. It can do everything that the others can do. Its by far the most robust of all the dyslexia products out there that Ive tried. If I could only use one literacy app, this is denitely the one Id always choose. If youre a student and youre dyslexic you need Read&Write concludes Jonathan. It really is the premier reading software out there. Distinguished biochemist Jonathan Levine balances a full-time scientic career with his own academic research with help every day from Read&Write.
