The Connections in the Workplace Software uses Attainment's software which reads the stories aloud to students with professional narration.

A test at the end of each story provides speech support and an optional hint feature that directs students to the page that addresses each question. A unified management system helps the teacher quickly review or print out student performance data. Teachers can determine reading lists and set options that best suit each student's learning style. Choose word-by-word or natural speech narration, select the text highlighting approach and assign tests.
