Premier Assistive Technology announces its new Outline/Highlight Extraction Technology
April 2, 2005 - Premier Assistive Technology unveiled its latest product, the latest innovation in reading and study technology, its Outline / Extraction Utility.
These new features make E-Text Reader a great study tool for everyone. With Outline / Highlight Extraction, users can now access any standard format digital text (e.g. e-Books, word processing documents, etc,) and highlight points of interest in one or more colors, enter study notes in another color, and when they are done, can extract all the highlighted information into a separate “outlined” document. Users can even have just one highlighted color read to them, or all the highlighted colors. Just imagine being able to identifying and precisely extract only essential information from a document PLUS your own notes to create a separate new document for study and review purposes !!!
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. Often times, 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.
The new Outline / Highlight Extraction technology is included as part of our E-Text Reader. The E-Text Reader can open and read almost any document on your computer without the need to cut and paste from elsewhere. It is compatible with any version of MS Word, RTF, HTML, Plain Text and even XML. The E-Text Reader is now more than just a reader and editor, it is now a powerful study tool as well !
The new Outline / Highlight Extraction technology is currently available in our E-Text Reader 3.0 and soon will be part of our Talking Word Processor 8 and Scan and Read Pro 8.
