Project Overview

Harcourt School Publishers asked Vertex to produce interactive online editions of their popular elementary school reading textbooks. Vertex automated the conversion of print to Web and completed development of Harcourt’s online Book Viewer application, created and deployed using Adobe Flash.

Vertex also developed a complementary software product for reading intervention, designed to assist students having difficulties mastering reading skills. Vertex programmers designed and developed a new Flash viewer application that incorporates text highlighting to accommodate two different audio timing schemes. Working on an accelerated production schedule, Vertex developers also automated conversion of the intervention textbook pages, enabling delivery of the online stories in time for state school board review.
