Do you have spelling problems that defy spellcheck? Dyslexia?

GingerSoftware was noted on an AT listserve and I was curious enough to investigate.  I typed

“drekshuns four maaking sup”          in their “try it” line and got

“directions for making sup?”

the word sup had a ? that turned into a drop down menu with some possible word choices and soup was 3rd on the list. I am impressed and thinking that including a text to speech option would have been helpful for determining the word soup. Upon investigation, Ginger Premium, includes that feature. I need to download the product and hopefully the text to speech feature comes with the download.  It would be fantastic if the text reading component worked as well as some of the text to speech programs.  I’ll report back.

There is a licensing system for institutions as well as single user rate.

For a single user the price of the software is a great deal, made better by a half price sale until January 1, 2010;

Ginger is $49.50  for a lifetime license

Ginger Premium is $74.50 for a lifetime license.   After January 1, 2010 the price doubles.

  1. Finding Sydney serviced apartments online is really easy and quick.
    Spend your hard earned money on indulging in yourself rather than tipping hotel staff from the time to check in to the
    time you check-out. t simply an attraction to the numerous business and
    shopping facilities available. If you have children,
    you can never go wrong with this place.
