Absolutely. We offer Rhyme for workgroups as well larger departments and companies. Universities, academies, and bootcamps can also buy Rhyme for their settings. You can select projects and trainings that are mission critical for you and, as well, author your own that reflect your own needs and tech environments. Please email us at
Rhyme strives to ensure that visual instructions are helpful for reading impairments. The Rhyme interface has features like resolution and zoom that will be helpful for visual impairments. And, we are currently developing a close-caption functionality to help with hearing impairments. Most of the accessibility options of the cloud desktop's operating system or the specific application can also be used in Rhyme. If you have questions related to accessibility, please email us at
We started with windows and linux cloud desktops because they have the most flexibility in teaching any software (desktop or web). However, web applications like Salesforce can run directly through a virtual browser. And, others like Jupyter and RStudio can run on containers and be accessed by virtual browsers. We are currently working on such features where such web applications won't need to run through cloud desktops. But, the rest of the Rhyme learning, authoring, and monitoring interfaces will remain the same.
Please email us at and we'll respond to you within one business day.
