What are people saying about AceReader Elite

Mary Wilson I am looking at the program for myself only. What I liked was the option for loading some of your own text in the export mode. Will this work in both versions or only one version. I own a few of the voices you have as I purchased them for Text Aloud. Can I use them with the program?

Brenda G4 I tried the Pro version in demo mode. I am unable to test it because it is severely crippled.

* In the demo version, sometimes you are forced to read the same text even though in the paid version you would have new text. This means you cannot tell if you have improved because you are reading the same thing over and over. (There is a lot of new stuff, but it is not accurate to test your speed at the beginning and then later on use the same text to see if you have improved.)

* Can only do 11 of the activities in a "course set". It said you could switch to another course set, but there seems to be only 1 course set. When I tried to switch it just asked if I wanted to clear my previous results, and it used the same text.

* If you read too fast, it will not let you try to go faster. (I think the limit was 400 wpm.) It locks you down to a slower speed even though you could have actually progressed in the none demo version. (I think I started at 179 and then was locked down to 358.. but again I cannot tell if I have improved because I can't do enough of the course to track my progress.)

I feel that the 30 day limit should be enough without the additional crippling of features.

I would not buy this program because I have no idea if it was actually helping me or not.

Bernie Marasco Hello Brenda,

We respect your opinion. We have been listening to our customers for over a decade now and we will continue to keep a close ear to what they have to say. After reading your comment, I wonder if it would be better if we gave a fully functional 7 or 14 day trial instead of a 30 day limited trial. This is something we have thought about in the past, but we hesitated to make any changes since we have not received any complaints.

* Our main goal with our "demo" is to allow you to test drive the program so that you can get a feel for how we approach the problem and to give you a taste of all the program features. We want our demo to give you confidence that by using our program with all it's features turned on that you can see how it will help you accomplish your reading improvement goals.

* Please also note, in addition to our free demo, we also offer a 30 day money back guarantee.

I hope this helps! Support is a high priority with us, so don't hesitate to call or email if you continue to have questions.

Michael R Is this software multi-lingual; does it contain the german language too?

Does it make sense to use this program, if English is not the user's first (native) language, even if he understands English?

Can the test-texts be modified?
Feb 7 2010 at 4:40pm Copy Link
0
Bernie Marasco The user interface and the reading material that we provide is in English only. But please note that our AceReader products do support the International ASCII character set, so it will work with most of the European languages (i.e. Spanish, Italian, French, German ...).

You can load AceReader with files (.txt, .doc and .pdf files) and also by using the clipboard. When you use the clipboard, you can bring in text from Web pages, word processing documents, e-books, e-mail, and the like.

The Deluxe versions of the program allow you to incorporate your own text into the program for use with the Tests, Drills and Games.

We also sell a text-to-speech add-on for the PC versions of the software. The text-to-speech add-on will vocalize the words as they are displayed on the screen. We have English, Spanish, French and German voices. It should be noted that these are very high quality human sounding voices.

In summary, the program can be useful even if English is not your first (native) language since you can use it to help improve your English and since you can load AceReader with your own text (i.e. German text).

Ron K I have two questions.

First, I reformat and reinstall my OS more often than most. How is activation handled, i.e. I be unable to reinstall the software after a few times? I'm talking about on to the same computer, but a fresh OS installation. I've been locked out of expensive software in the past because the activation scheme would count installs, but not uninstalls.

Second, portable installations on to a USB device let me bypass problem #1. Is it possible to make a portable installation?
Feb 8 2010 at 1:54am Copy Link
0
Bernie Marasco It is not possible to perform a portable installation (i.e. onto a USB device).

By default we allow up to 3 activations. If you need more, you will need to contact us via email or phone and provide enough information for us to look up your order and then we will proceed with helping you with additional activations.

Bob F Your website lists a version for Mac OS. is this special good for that version?

I believe version 6.0.2 is the latest for MAC OS and version 7.0.0 is the latest for Microsoft OS. Are the data files compatible between these two versions?

Also, your website says you get 3 activations for up to 3 different computers. Does this apply across different platforms or must all 3 be the same platform?
Feb 8 2010 at 2:21am Copy Link

Bernie Marasco Today's special applies to the PC/Windows version only.

The data files are compatible between versions 5, 6 and 7.

The PC/Windows product and the Macintosh product are sold as two separate products. We do this since both products took independent development efforts. If you purchase the PC/Windows version of AceReader Pro, then you can install it on up to 3 Windows computers. If you purchase the Macintosh version of AceReader Pro, then you can install it on up to 3 Macintosh computers. Again, this promo is for the Windows version only.

H. H. Hallo,
1. is therea possibility to save the activation file in case of reformatting the harddisk (I'm speaking about the same pc, same hardware, only different or formatted harddisk). I've made bad experiences with an expensive software, which I had bought for using in a longer holiday - and already the 2nd activation failed - and the support did not answer promptly - so I had spent a lot of money for a software which Icouldn't use for many weeks and when I really needed it. After that experience the kind of actiavation procedure has become an important checkpoint for the decision if buying a program or not.
2. what would happen to the activation in case your company would no longer exist (don't hope so) (I'm asking this, because I spent money on buying a software via digitalriver-regnow) from a company which possibly doesn't exist any longer - and I didn't get the licensekey for the money I spent.
3. can german words be put in the games and exercieses (in the deluxe versions)?
thank you for answering promptly in advance
with kind regards
H.

PS please apologize my mistakes in english language

Bernie Marasco 1. There is not a way to save an activation file that will help if you reformat.

2. Just like any company, we can't guarantee that we will be here forever, but we have no plans of going anywhere. :) We have been around for 12+ years so far. Once you activate the program, it will be activated on that computer forever (unless you reformat your hard drive). By default you do get 3 activations for the purpose of re-installing the software and/or if you want to install the software onto another computer used by you and/or your immediate family. If you need additional activations, you need to contact us via email or phone with enough information to find your order and then we will assist you.

3. Yes, the Deluxe version will allow you to incorporate German text into the program for use with the Tests, Drills and Games.

Bernie Marasco In regards to the question about the version from two years ago...  I'm not sure exactly what version you have, but over the past few years we have continued to make improvements with the program.  To see if you have the latest User Interface which was much improved, you may want to visit our web site and refer to the screen shots (http://www.acereader.com/...shots.html) and/or the video tutorials (http://www.acereader.com/...#tutorials) or you can download our latest demo's from: http://www.acereader.com/...trial.html .  To best understand the differences between the Pro and Pro Deluxe versions, please refer to: http://www.acereader.com/...tures.html .  The latest Deluxe version now includes an SAT/ACT Prep Test Set and leveled vocabulary exercises available from our Menu Mode.  Version 7 now includes graphical warm-up drills.  Our latest version also allows up to 3 activations per household (for
multiple computers, or to handle the event that you need to re-install
the software).  We have also made many other minor improvements with the program.
StepWare, Inc. - Sep 13 2010 at 11:35am Copy Link
0
Bernie Marasco In regards to the question about Kaspersky...  We are aware of an issue with Kaspersky.  It has to do with our activation system since it creates temporary files that keeps changing.  If you purchase the program you can contact us and we can help you get around the issue.  Note: Kaspersky is the only anti-virus program that seems to cause this issue.  We are currently working with Kaspersky to resolve this issue, but it will probably take some time for them to address the issue.  Again, we do have a work around for the issue if you contact us.
StepWare, Inc. - Sep 13 2010 at 11:38am Copy Link

Bernie Marasco In regards to the question about if this latest version will work with the voices you already have...  I believe the answer is yes if your version is only two years old.  If you have any issues with the latest version and your existing voices, just contact us and at worst case, we will send you new voices.
StepWare, Inc. - Sep 13 2010 at 11:41am Copy Link

Mary Wilson Thank you for the information on the voices. I saved everything to a CD-Rom before I lost my hard drive and have everything except that I saw you where offering a new version and putting it back to Bits du Jour, so I decided to wait to reinstall until after deciding on whether to get the new version or not. You stated that the latest Deluxe version now includes an SAT/ACT Prep Test Set and leveled vocabulary exercises available from our Menu Mode.  Currently trying to learn new vocabulary for a Anatomy class. Can you make your own vocabulary lists and other test sets? I would like to make some for my Anatomy class.

Bernie Marasco In regards to the question about our Activation system...  When you purchase the program, you will receive a Serial Number.  We programmed the Serial Numbers to allow up to 3 activations.  The 3 activations are for the purchaser/household and allow you to install the software on more than one computer and/or allow you to re-install the software if you reformat your hard drive or get a new computer.  We will go beyond the 3 activations if you contact us.  We provide two methods of activation: (1) Electronic Activation via the Serial Number (utilizes the Internet) one time and (2) Manual Activation which involves an email/phone/fax exchange with us.

Bernie Marasco Thank you for noticing S B! We have been focused on nothing but AceReader for over 13+ years and we have put a lot into making sure it's loaded with capabilities while keeping the program easy to use.

People primarily use AceReader as an "educational tool" to help them learn how to read more efficiently both on and off the computer. Other people use it as a "productivity tool" to help them get through their reading materials more efficiently while on the computer by utilizing the powerful display modes included in the "Expert Mode". The program includes a flash card game preloaded with state capitals and times tables for younger students and the Deluxe version includes SAT Prep and college level vocabulary exercises for older students. The flash card game can be used for reading improvement purposes, but it can also be used for memorization purposes. With the Deluxe version you can even incorporate your own material for use with the Tests, Drills and Games. The program is primarily used by older students and adults, but is also used by middle school and even grade school students.

In short, AceReader is referred to as reading improvement software, reading assessment software, online reader software, reading fluency software, vision training software, and speed reading software.

JP Was thinking of buying this but see that you are only allowed 3 installations per footprint. I frequently re-build my system and am concerned that this will be reached very quicky.
Am not going to buy if it just ceases to work and cannot get it re-activated.

Bernie Marasco Hello Jason - By default we allow 3 activations. This takes care of most people's needs in the event that they have more than one computer, or they need to re-install the software. We will go beyond the 3 activations if you contact us (i.e. via email or phone). If you still have a concern, please call or email us and we can address your specific questions.

Bernie Marasco Hello Carlos - We do treat the English versions as separate propducts from the Spanish versions since both versions took separate development efforts. Our product includes a lot of text in the tests, drills, games and user interfaces. To create the Spanish versions was a large multi-year process. I hope you can understand why we need to charge for both versions. Also note, you will not be able to install the same version of AceReader more than once on the same computer (even if one is English and the other is Spanish). You can install the Pro and Deluxe at the same time, but for example, you can't install two Deluxe editions even if one is English and the other is Spanish. One other thing to note, the English version does include a Spanish Test Set add-on option which is a Spanish translation of the original 260 English tests (refer to the $15 Spanish Test Set add-on option on the order form).

Bernie Marasco We like to encourage people to pick the correct version up front. Usually, you will know up front which version you need. To best understand the differences between the two versions is to refer to the feature table at: http://www.acereader.com/...tures.html . In situations when someone has purchased the Pro and meant to purchase the Deluxe within the first month of use, we will only charge the price difference. Again, I think if you study the feature table, you can make a good decision as to which version you need up front.

Robert Zozus Bernie. Thanks for your responses on this forum. They have been most helpful. From your last answer, it seems that we have 30 days to upgrade from the time of activation- not that purchase date. That is important for Julie Julie above- but, also for me- as I do not plan activation until I jump to Lion on the Mac. And, finally (sorry for the additional complication)- will we be able to upgrade for the $10 price difference today- or, would we need upgrade for the $30 difference there normally is between the two products. As you can see, I like clarity- hope this is helpful.

K X @ garrett

I use & recommend AceReader Pro Deluxe (but Pro works the same, I think), for speed reading personal content, at home and at work (This is my primary use of the program, more than the lessons. But the training is good for increasing speed, monitoring your progress, testing reading comprehension and for warming up.)

You can load files in txt, pdf, doc, docx format Or cut and paste from websites (or anything else that's cut & paste-able).

This feature is in Expert Mode. See the second screenshot.

Robert Zozus I will chip in on K X's endorsement. Bernie has responded well to my one inquiry. Also, I have used an earlier version of AceReader Pro- which I found quite useful. In fact, I have to continually use it to maintain my gains (not an indictment of the software- more of myself). Anyway, I am upgrading because the previous version will not work on the new operating system for the Mac. I'm just trying to decide how best to do so. AceReader Pro was the last major program holding up the upgrade for me....

Bernie Marasco Hello Alex - The cost to upgrade from "AceReader Pro" to "AceReader Pro Deluxe" is $30 and is available for 30 days after your purchase. Again, it makes sense to purchase the proper version up front depending on your needs. The feature differences are listed at: http://www.acereader.com/...tures.html .

Bernie Marasco Hello Julie - The 30 day return policy is from date of purchase. Having said that, it's worth mentioning that we hardly ever get returns. We like to think this is because people like the program. :) The low returns number may also be because we offer a free trial which lets people see up front what they are purchasing before they purchase. Note, the demo does have restrictions which make it not overly useful for learning, but it does let you see first hand how the program works. In special cases, we can allow over 30 days. Just write us an email within 30 days of your purchase with your situation and we will take care of you. supportstepware.com .

Bernie Marasco Hello Garett - Yes, with both versions there is an Expert Mode screen. That screen gives you full control and lets you load your own content, set the display modes and speed settings. You can load PDF Files, Word documents (with PC version), plain text files and you can also use the clipboard to copy/paste text from web pages, emails and other sources. This mode is a powerful part of the program that makes the tool useful forever since you are not restricted to the text that comes with the program and it lets you read or train with material that you may have needed to read anyway. Again, both versions have this "Expert Mode", but if you want to incorporate your own material to create your own Tests, Drills or Games, then you will need the Deluxe version.

Bernie Marasco Hello Mina - We treat the PC version as a separate product from the Mac version since it took a separate development effort to create both versions.

K X I've also been experimenting with speed reading on the computer screen using Iconico's LineReader, when I'm working with a computer file which doesn't allow copying of text (so I can't paste it into AceReader) or if I'm at a computer without AceReader installed.

AceReader doesn't run from a USB flash drive, but LineReader does.

Bernie Marasco Hello Robert - Yes, the Deluxe version includes Readability Statistics that allow you to determine the text complexity of any text that you type in or copy/paste from other sources. The Readability Stats function is included in the editors that allow you to create your own Tests and Drill text (only in the Deluxe version). If you want to know the readability of some text, you can temporarily paste in the text in the editors to get the readability, then back out of the editors and paste it into the Expert Mode to read the text. This would allow you to know the text complexity without actually creating formal Tests or Drills. Again, this functionality is only available in the Deluxe version.

Bernie Marasco Hello K X - Thanks for the input. Much appreciated! :) We do sell a Text-To-Speech add-on. You will see that add-on option available on the order form. For the PC version of AceReader, it is an implementation using SAPI 5 and uses the latest AT&T Natural Voices release. We just updated the program recently to work with their latest release. The Text-To-Speech for the PC product comes with Mike and Crystal voices, but we do sell additional voices (even Spanish, French, German and Italian voices). So if you paste in Spanish text into the Expert Mode and you have a Spanish voice it will speak in Spanish. The multiple language voice fonts are available only for the PC version. The Mac version uses the built-in Text-To-Speech voice engine that come with the Mac OS.

Bernie Marasco Hello K X - Line Reader looks like an interesting product. My only comment is that AceReader is trying to help you become an efficient reader without the use of pacing devices which can sometimes be a little bit like using a crutch. It's not a bad thing, but we do think it's best if you can learn to get your eyes to do the right thing without an such devices. Line Reader may be another good tool in your arsenal, but should not be confused as a replacement for AceReader. I think this is obvious, but just figured it would not hurt to put in my two cents. :)

Bernie Marasco For the PC version of the software we use the AT&T Natural Voices for the Text-To-Speech add-on. The Mac version simply uses the built-in voices that you get with your Mac. Even though our application is only less than 20MB, each PC voice is about 500 MB is takes up the space of a whole CD. So for size reasons and consistency reasons, we don't offer that option as a download and it's only available on CD when you purchase. For PC, you can test to see what the voices sound like by clicking on the voice samples on our web site. To hear the PC voice samples, refer to: http://www.acereader.com/...ducts.html and then scroll down the page and you will see the voice sample links.

Bernie Marasco The Text-To-Speech add-on is integrated with the Forced Speed Mode Comprehension Tests, the Drills and the Expert Mode. The Expert Mode is where the Text-To-Speech add-on is most used. The Expert Mode allows you to load your own material, set the display mode and speed settings. You can then press the Play/Stop buttons to start/stop the flashing of text. If you have the Text-To-Speech add-on, you can turn it on or off. There are 20 different Text-To-Speech speed settings. The voice will stay in sync with whatever display mode you are using. You can be flashing text in any of the available display modes. NOTE: When you have the Text-To-Speech turned on, you do have 20 speed settings, but it obviously does not allow you to go at super high speeds (i.e. speeds that are faster than fast talking). On a PC, the fastest Text-To-Speech speed setting of 20 can allow you to go at about 400 to 500 words/minute. It's fairly chipmunk sounding at the highest speed, but it is understandable. Keep in mind that the Text-To-Speech add-on is typically used for special uses such as early reading fluency training (grades 1 to 3), certain other type of special vision training purposes or simply allowing one to reduce eye strain and fatigue by allow you to listen to the material you need to read.

Bernie Marasco I tried to create a small video demonstrating the text-to-speech add-on, but the when you play the video, the sound is behind, so it does not demonstrate what you want to see. So unfortunately, a video is not a good way to demonstrate it. The sound does stay in sync with whatever display mode you are in. Concerning the price, when you purchase the Text-To-Speech add-on by checking that option on the order form, you do get a discount for that add-on ($31 instead of the normal $42). From this deal, you will get a 50% discount on the software and if you want the optional Text-To-Speech add-on, you will pay an additional $31.

Goran Janevski After playing with this for a couple of this, I like it a lot, and I believe it has quite the potential to help me with fast reading.

When I purchased I didn't know if I was going to keep it, but now I am pretty sure I will.

Two things.

First the big one: My preferred mode (so far) is to go into Expert mode, open one of my PDF files, and read it. What is missing is the properties of the text as it was in the PDF file. That is to say, if the text was bold in the PDF, then Ace Reader should show it as bold, too!

As it is, I lose some of the information from the original PDF which would normally help my comprehension. Is there a way to enable this, or is this a missing future feature ;-) ?

Secondly, I don't understand why I have to log in as admin in order to save my custom settings. There should be a way for me to save my preferred display mode, font size/colour screen width in my own user id. Is there?

Other than that, as I said this tool is awesome. I think I am ADHD, and the tool forces me to pay attention and keep up with the highlighting, which is great!

Not to mention that presumably I will build habits and get rid of sub vocalization, and get better over time.

Two days later, I am already doing 280 words per minute. At my initial assessment, I was at 199wpm.

Keep up the good work!

Bernie Marasco In regards to Goran's two questions:

The Expert Mode is a very powerful part of the program that has many display modes. The one thing it's not designed to do, is to display text with all of the "original" formatting. It does have one display mode called "Formatted Page" that will keep all the white space information (spaces, tabs and newlines) which makes it easier to see paragraph breaks and simple indenting from the original document. As you have probably noticed from the Options menu, we do support a lot of display options, i.e. ability to set font, font color, font size, background color, margin widths, flash/display mode: center of screen or in modes that will pace eye movement left-to-right/top-to-bottom like you do in normal reading, ability to set how much text to flash or highlight at a time, speed settings, fine tune speed settings and much more. So in summary, the program does not attempt to maintain original format, but instead supports the ability to present the text in many modes that should help you with your training needs. I should mention that many people use the Expert Mode beyond training needs. They also use the Expert Mode as a "productivity tool" to help them get through their volumes of reading while on the computer. For example, they may find a mode such as displaying a few words at a time in the center of the screen allows them to read without moving their eyes. Many people find that an efficient way to read.

One of the features of the Deluxe is that it's a multi-user edition, so it includes a logon screen. It will keep the program settings and test scores separate for each user. Custom Option settings is a global action. To avoid allowing students from being able to affect what other students see, we only let the Admin perform administration functions. If you are going to be the only user using the Deluxe edition, I would recommend that you just logon as the Admin user, then you will automatically have access to the Admin functions.

I hope that helps. Concerning your comments on your improvement... That's great! We appreciate you sharing your experience.

Philip User I can't get it to install - I jest get the message:

Access violation
Program terminated

Any idea why?

Thanks

Bernie Marasco Hello Philip, I just sent you an email. Let me know if you did not get it. Since you have a Virtual Machine I'm thinking the activation system may have gotten confused. Just email me back a reply to my email once you do what I suggested. I'm sure we will get you going. Thank you!

Philip User Thaks Bernie - for taking the time to get it working.

If anyone else has a problem - it turns out my display settings were the problem...changed to standard Windows Theme and all was well.

Thanks again

Bernie Marasco Philip, I think the issue was just with that specific display theme on your computer. You should be fine with other themes that you have available on your computer. If you continue to have any issues, just email me. Thanks!

Brian W How does your program compare to "The Reader's Edge", which also has periodic BDJ discounts?

Bernie Marasco There are similarities and differences as you would expect. Every program approaches the problem at different angles. Sometimes some people even find owning multiple programs is useful. I’m not very familiar with their program, so I can’t provide you a list of differences. I would recommend that you download our demo and give it a try. You may want to do the same with any other program you see. We do feel the demo is an honest way of giving you the information you need to make a decision before purchasing the program. We also do honor a satisfaction guarantee after your purchase.

Nelson Therrien I already have Ace Reader Pro... What's the difference? Is there an upgrade price?

By the way, I reinstalled the latest version of Pro yesterday and it tells me my serial is wrong... I used to have to put my name and serial, but now there's just a place for a serial...

Bernie Marasco For “major” updates, we normally charge a nominal fee (similar to today’s deal). This latest release was a major update. To see what’s new with the latest version, please refer to the bullet list at: http://www.acereader.com/...ducts.html . For support on an existing product, feel free to call or email.

Matt I purchased AceReader Pro Deluxe 11 years ago and have been keeping it updated throughout the years. My wife and I have been using it with great success. Because we liked it so much, we purchased two additional licenses for two family members.

I recently upgraded to the newest AceReader Elite version. It has a lot of nice, new features.

Bernie, from AceReader, provides the best customer service!

About a year ago, I also purchased The Reader's Edge here on BDJ, thinking it might help increase my reading speed even more. Other than installing it on the 'allowed' two PCs, I haven't made the time to experiment with it.

But I did make several attempts in contacting The Reader's Edge Customer Service. I needed (and still need) to move my two installed licenses from two old PCs onto two new PCs. Moving licenses requires that the existing licenses be 'de-activated' with customer service. After several contact attempts and several months, The Reader's Edge Customer Service has failed to return even one single email.

I'm sticking with a winner... AceReader!

Nelson Therrien I know that this release is a major update... but the Pro version I downloaded yesterday shouldn't be...

Nelson Therrien Well, forget about it... I'll buy this one... Mine might be too old anyway (bought in 2007) and if the upgrade price is similar to today's deal, it's best to go with this elite version...

Thanks anyway.

Bernie Marasco Today's offer is the best price for upgrading from version 5. The program has gone through many updates since version 5. Too many to list, but here are a few highlights: (1) We now include all our Test Set themes (American History, Earth and Space Science, Famous People, Fun Facts, SAT-ACT Pre) with the program and they are also incorporated into the Courses for a total of over 800 tests, (2) The General Test Set theme has been updated with longer stories and levels 3 to 13 now have 8 questions per story instead of 4. (3) Goal Setting, (4) Speed Reading Stopwatch (which allows you to see your current reading speed in real time while taking the self-paced tests), (5) 625 eBooks, (6) Video Tutorials, (7) Text-To-Speech capabilities...
