AIM Products Feature Chart

The AIM Products Feature Chart compares features available in commercial software programs that are included in the AIM Product Tutorials demonstration project. The features are organized into six categories: Text File Formats Supported, Navigation, Visual Supports, Reading Supports, File Managing Supports, and Learning Supports. The categories and feature labels in the chart are solely for the purpose of helping users to explore and learn more about commercial software programs that can support the use of accessible instructional materials. They do not reflect how each commercial software company describes their product. To explore the benefits and limitations of different features, tryout the features in AIM Explorer. To learn more about using a specific product, watch the video series with detailed demonstration of product features and operation.
