FAQs

Yes, it includes built in single and two-switch scanning.

Sure. We posted a few sample chapters that you can check out. At this time these demo pages are just computer-only (it won’t work on your smartphone or iPad). Visit start-to-finish.com on your computer and click on “Try The Demo.”

Yes. The online library includes the same titles as the original Start-to-Finish desktop series with over 90 chapter book titles.

We treat the licenses separately, but you can certainly continue using your current books even after you purchase the online version. The paperback and audio books are actually a good complement to the online version (the pages have a 1:1 correspondence) and you can push the computer CDs out to your classrooms without internet access. Unlike the Start-to-Finish computer, audio, and paperback book sets, which were sold one title at a time, the new online version includes a complete library of over 90 chapter book titles. We tried to price the online library affordably for unlimited school and home access.

The way it’s set up, each school counts as a site. We priced it affordably (less than the cost of one iPad per site) so that classrooms can have anytime access to the whole library. It’s hard to be fully integrated and UDL with the lending library setup. One thing that was never possible before with the Start-to-Finish lending libraries but is now with the online version is that a classroom can read the same book at the same time without purchasing 15 or more copies of each title.

Yes, provided start-to-finish.com is not specifically blocked.

This is where the beauty of the cloud shines brightest. You never have to sync devices. If you log in and read a book on your iPad, you can open your laptop later and begin reading where you left off without syncing, ever!

Absolutely! Just hit the link to the HTML version of Start-to-Finish, which allows users to enlarge text.
