Westford School is looking for software that will aid music and language
special uses, as well as general lab use.

Westford's teachers have had experience with old versions of LanSchool,
but that was several years ago.   We are considering SynchronEyes, but
it does not meet all of the anticipated requirements listed below.
XClass Pro appears to satisfy all of the requirements, but includes
additional hardware for the language lab features.

What do SCHOOL-IT readers use? recommend? Which features are actually
used?
