Talking Grammar Check
Take the Grammar Check Challenge by opening any document in Microsoft Word. When you are finished correcting the document, run the same document through the Talking Grammar Check in the Talking Word Processor to see the items Microsoft Word missed. The Talking Grammar Check does more than look for errors. When it finds an error, it will read to you the grammatical rule and provide you with suggestions. Most people can catch their errors when they hear them, which is why the Talking Grammar Check will read the suggestion to you when you click on it. When you hear the correct suggestion, all you need to do is select the change button. "It has never been easier to use your ears to proofread!" says Dr. Steve Timmer.
The Grammar Check is optimized for struggling writers. Struggling writers make different mistakes than accomplished writers. They need something that will question their writing, offer suggestions, and give them the reason why it is being questioned. It is like having your own English tutor!
The Talking Grammar Check can be customized to meet individual needs. It has 29 different categories that users can enable or disable.

Talking Word Processor© is an easy-to-use word processing program designed to help people who have difficulty with reading and writing. We wanted to design a word processor that was easy to use as well as having speech capabilities.
Virtually any standard word processor file is compatible with Talking Word Processor©, including the latest versions of Microsoft Word, standard text, and rich text formats. With the press of a single key, you can hear text as you type it. The "word repeat" feature repeats the word after it’s been typed. This lets you know immediately if you misspell a word.
Even if you are just learning word processing for the first time, you will find the powerful, yet easy-to-use features of The Talking Word Processor to be a wonderful tool to build your word processing skills quickly!!!
Create and edit Microsoft Word documents without having to purchase Microsoft Word. The Talking Word Processor has many of the same features that you will find in Microsoft Word, but without the price.
Proofread and learn by listening. The Talking Word Processor will read virtually any document on your computer. You can even cut and paste from the Internet. You will be surprised to see how many more errors you catch with your ears.
To use the built-in 250,000-word dictionary, just double-click on a word and the definition of that word will open. Try to do that in Word Perfect or Microsoft Word. This dictionary could not be easier.
Talking Spell Check: The built-in spell check is like most other spell checkers, except that this one will read the words to you. Most people will know the right word when they hear it.
"Word Pause" is a new technology unique to Talking Word Processor©. This feature allows you to slow down the reading of your words without distorting the way the words are spoken. You can increase or decrease the time between each word. This lets you hear the words at your own pace. It’s a great feature if you or your children are learning to read or studying a new language.

The Auto Summarize feature lets you quickly summarize the information in a document. The flexible summarization feature lets users summarize the book a range of pages, or a selection of information. Integrated language-model summarization differs from that built into MS Word because it based off an actual "language model" and NOT artificial document structure rules, thereby, giving you the most accurate information summarization on the market.
