A Brief History of Quillsoft:

Our Journey Helping People Read and Write Better

Your copy: Located in Toronto, ON, Quillsoft is an industry leader in assistive technology – in our case, it’s software that helps people read and write better. We were founded by Dr. Fraser Shein in 2000 in partnership with Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. Quillsoft began as a start-up from a group of university and hospital research labs and the Ontario Rehabilitation Technology Consortium with a shared goal of bringing effective rehabilitation through technology into the hands of those that need it. Since our inception, we have come to realize that our software can help anyone read and write better – from kids to post-secondary students and people on the job to retirees. Our sole focus at Quillsoft is reading and writing literacy software tools that; make it easier to communicate effectively with others, aid in understanding written language, and level the playing field for people of all ages, around the world.

Concepts like self-esteem, confidence, and belonging are hard to picture, but they’re integral to our health and happiness. They can’t be seen or touched, but we at Quillsoft firmly believe that they are some of the real benefits and lasting rewards that can be realized by being able to understand, communicate, and express yourself effectively through reading and writing. Quillsoft’s software suite is comprised of WordQ, SpeakQ, ThoughtQ, and ReaderQ, and each of these programs is designed to teach and lead users on the path to better self-expression. Trusted by educators and users worldwide and built for use by anyone ages 5-95, our assistive technology suite integrates speech recognition, word prediction, research and discovery help into your day-to-day life.

Our passionate team believes strongly in how the Quillsoft suite of software can help users read and write better, and we’re here to help you along the way. If you have any questions, never hesitate to ask! Interested in getting started? You can download your free trial of WordQ today!
