Alinea for Windows The Software Alinea takes care of the rest for you, which is why it is so great to work with. Alinea also adapts itself to the level of the user. You can change the spelling rules that you have the most trouble with. After some time, Alinea will even begin to predict your behaviour. It will suggest words that you often use with or after each other. Children using the software can read and write without the aid of a parent or teacher. The software grows along with you, so it is also great for older students and can even be indispensable in the workplace. Read Alinea clearly reads all the texts on your PC aloud, while that text is highlighted in two different colours. You can have it read the text in any program that allows you to highlight: Office programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.), texts and forms on the internet, your Facebook page, e-mail programs (even online!) Support is available in four languages: Dutch, French, English, and German, with automatic language recognition and matching voices. Write Customised predictor Type the beginning of a word and Alinea will predict the rest. When you click on the predicted word, Alinea will suggest the rest, because the software remembers which words you often use together. Prevent mistakes Do you make mistakes when you write? Alinea pays attention to all kinds of spelling errors, such as “ance/ence” or “ei/ie” and the differences between homonyms. Alinea learns which mistakes you make, corrects them quickly, and explains the correction. Check afterwards Do you want to have a previously written text corrected? Alinea can also check the spelling and verbs in a text for mistakes even after the text has been written. Alinea does this more powerfully and reliably than your typical spellcheck.
