    • Company Name
    • Wi-Fi MAC ID
    • Ethernet MAC ID
    • Language desired (include region)

NOTE: Each download requires its own, unique license key or code, which are purchased by Converus from ReadSpeaker. Depending on current inventory, there may not be a code available for a requested language. Orders for more codes are placed only when more commonly used languages have depleted (approximately every 4 months) due to minimum order requirements. If there are no available codes for a desired language, we recommend relying on a free Microsoft version for any immediate testing needs. If there is no inventory of a specific language, Converus will add your request to its next order.
