KeySpell Ellipsis is a voice output spelling utility designed for use by individuals with learning disabilities. This spelling aid supplements the spell checkers in programs such as Microsoft Word. It has a comprehensive dictionary of 350,000 words, and can be set for specific levels of difficulty or areas of interest. For example, an inexperienced writer could reduce the number of suggestions produced by choosing the Junior dictionary, while a doctor could narrow the range of suggestions by choosing the Medical dictionary. To help users select the correct word, thesaurus-type alternatives are provided, as are examples of the word used in context, in a meaningful sentence. The program has a direct link to recent versions of Microsoft Word (97 or later) and Dragon NaturallySpeaking (version 5 or later), allowing users of those program to find the correct spelling with the spelling utility program and transfer the results back with a single keystroke, replacing the original. The utility can also scan Microsoft Word documents for spelling errors and homophones (which are highlighted as such). The checking mechanism provides suggestions based on phonetic similarity to entered word(s), so the correct word can be produced from even complex misspellings. Searches can also be conducted based on the beginning or the end of the word according to the preference of the user. For those with dyslexia, the program can even supply correct spellings "elephant" can still be found when misspelled with a consonant as "lefant" The program incorporates voice synthesis technology from Nuance that allows selected text to be read aloud as it appears on the screen.
