About Us

Established in 2011, the mission of my company, LiteracySoft, has been to create software that actually teaches people to read. With nearly a half million downloads, I am proud to be a top provider of phonics based literacy programs.

Hi, my name is Scott Yannitell. For over 20 years, I’ve been making software for various clients around the world. Many of my projects in the past would involve children’s education, and I truly loved those projects. But one element I found consistently present in many big budget educational software projects was emphasis on style and less on content. This made for some thin learning experiences.

I wanted to make software that was about learning, and less about having fun. My curriculum is based on the time honored McGuffey Reading Program which challenges readers to read. And this is what these products have been come to be revered for – learning above all.

I thank you for touring my products, and I wish you and your family the very best.
