Outline / Highlight Extraction Features

Special attention was given to the highlight colors used for highlighting. These unique colors will
not interfere with the background colors added to documents by other programs. If you have a
document with a background color and then you add highlighting to the document, our
highlight extraction technology can distinguish the difference between the highlighted text and
foreground / background colors. Frequently documents contain formatting and images. Our
new extraction technology will include all images and text formatting, even bullets, numbering,
hyperlinks, indentation, font size and type.

      Highlight with four different colors: Blue, Green, Pink and Yellow

Premier Predictor Pro Features
The Premier Predictor Pro has impressive features all designed to make working with text a
breeze. Word Prediction, word search, grade level selection, and document digestion are just
some of the features available to you when using Predictor Pro.

What is Word Prediction?

Word Prediction is a technology developed to assist people who have difficulty spelling and
writing. As a person types, word prediction will display a list of the most probable words
allowing the typist to select the word from the list. This technology can significantly reduce the
number of key strokes an individual need to make. The built in talking dictionary lets the typist
hear the definition to make sure that the word they select is the right word. – Whether, and
weather can be very confusing to some writers.

Word Search

 Can’t think of the word or only know part of it? Predictor Pro comes with a built-in word search
tool that helps you find a word when you only know how to spell a portion of the word. Enter
the letters you do know. Then you can browse the list of words in the prediction list. When you
hear the one you want, select it, and it will be inserted into your document.

Document Digestion

 Predictor Pro has a built-in Document Digester. It will read through documents you select and
find words that aren't in the prediction library but may be relevant to you. You are given the
option to add these to the library to optimize the tool for your individual use.

Grade Level Word Prediction

Predictor Pro lets users select the grade level of the words that display in the prediction list.
You can quickly set the word prediction for 4th grade and below, 6th grade and below, 8th
grade and below and all grades. The grade levels let individuals start out with grade level
appropriate words and move up grade levels as their writing skills progress.
Additional Libraries

 There are more than 20 additional libraries that are available to import into Premier Predictor
Pro. These libraries contain words and phrases related to medical terminology that are
extremely difficult to spell. After you import the library, the terms can be accessed by just
typing a few characters. For example, if you were in the nursing program and you wanted to
write “Adhatoda vasica, syn. Justiciaadhatoda” you could just type “adhvas” and then select the
full term from the prediction list.

Network-Enabled Libraries

Chances are that if words are added to a prediction list, like city names or places, they are
relevant for the whole class. In the past, educators had to update every workstation. Now with
the network-enabled libraries just update that library, and instantly the additions will be
available to all students.

Ultimate Talking Dictionary

Hot Key Word Lookup: Definitions are only a key press away. The UTD will work with virtually
any program. To look up a word, all you have to do is highlight it in your current application (i.e.
email, word processing, Internet), press the F11 key and almost instantly you have the
definition of the word being read to you. You can setup the UTD so that it automatically reads a
definition to you. You now have access to a dictionary that does not require you to stop what
you are doing just to go elsewhere to lookup the meaning / synonyms / antonyms of a word.
This works great while surfing the Internet. Just highlight the word and press the F11 key. It is
that simple.

250,000 Words

The UTD comes with a standard, unabridged dictionary that contains over 250,000 words.
When a word definition is provided, it is always accompanied by a sentence using the word in
context for each sense / meaning of the word. It even shows you the form of the word (i.e.
noun, verb, adjective, etc.). The definitions are clearly written so that they can be understood
by all age groups.


The UTD will read the definitions to you so that you can hear the meaning of a word, as well as,
how to use it in a sentence. It can also highlight the word on the screen as it reads. Both the
“synonym” list and the “word prediction” list speak, so all you need to do is click on a word and
it will be read to you.


Have you ever tried to look up a word, but can’t find it because you have misspelled it? The
UTD takes care of that for you. If you misspell a word, the UTD will “predict” the word you are
trying to spell and present you with a list of potential matches to the word you are looking for.
Once you “select” the one you want from the list of possible matches, the UTD will read the
word you have selected to you, so you can be sure that that indeed is the word you want and
the UTD will then retrieve and display the definition to you.
Power Search

If you do not know how to spell a word, but know part of the word, you can do a “power
search”. A “power search” will provide a list of all the words that contain that sequence of
letters. Listen to the list and when you hear the one you want, simply click on it to select and
hear it read to you.


Until now, dictionaries and thesauruses have almost always been separate books / documents.
Not with the UTD. The UTD has a built-in thesaurus and will automatically look up alternative
words “synonyms” and "antonyms" every time you search a word. If you want to hear a
definition of a synonym, just double-click it.


In order to squeeze the maximum number of words into a dictionary, many publishers often
print dictionaries using smaller fonts than a person would typically find in a newspaper,
magazine or book. The UTD can be made into a large print dictionary without any reduction of
its total contents. The “zoom” feature allows you to enlarge the print up to 400% of its original
size to meet your online viewing needs…all this while NOT reducing the number of words in the

Word History

The UTD keeps a current “word session history”. Have you ever used a dictionary and you see a
definition and it tells you to look up another word, or it gives you a definition that requires you
to look up more words to understand that definition? The UTD keeps a history of all the words
you look up in a particular online session so that you can easily go back to the previous word
just by clicking on the “Back” button. It is just like using a web browser.


The UTD is designed to work with screen readers and screen magnifiers. The voice can be
“turned off” so that it will not interfere with a screen reader voice. After all, if you already have
a screen reader you do not need another program that talks. The UTD can also be used with
just simple keyboard commands and does not require the use of a mouse.

Interlinking Technology

The UTD is more than just a dictionary. With the UTD, you do not need to know the exact
spelling of a word. Now you can look up a word even if you are not sure of the word your are
looking for. Getting a definition of the word is great, but being able to easily find a word that
you don’t know is even better. Have you ever had a word at the tip of your tongue, but couldn't
think of the precise word? This is a fairly common occurrence for many individuals. They know
the concept, but the exact word escapes them. They know what it is and will know it when they
see it or hear it, but they just need help locating it.

 To enable us to achieve these powerful searching algorithms, all of the words in the UTD are
“interlinked” in a myriad of ways to allow cross-referencing on a variety of relational levels, so
that it is easy to find a word just by knowing a concept or related idea. A traditional dictionary
would NEVER help you with this. But with the UTD, you can find something just knowing a
concept or idea and using the UTD with its INTERLINK technology to navigate through word
relationships until you find the exact word you are looking for.

 For example, I want to look up a type of “cloud”, but I can’t think of the name of that type of
cloud. I know what the cloud looks like, the shape, the color, etc, but I still only know that it is a
cloud. Just enter the word “cloud” and it will give you not only the definition of a cloud, but it
will also list all the different “types of” clouds. In another example, you can start by looking up
“sky”; you can view all the parts of the sky such as “rainbow” and “clouds”. You can then select
“clouds” and then view the types of clouds. Using this approach, you can find a definition of an
acorn just by looking up the word “tree.”

 Just use your arrow keys to navigate through the list of types and listen to the pronunciation of
the word describing the cloud that you want. Once you hear the word you’re looking for, press
the ENTER key to look up the definition of that cloud to verify that this is indeed the type of
cloud you were thinking about.
