**Limited Time Introductory Pricing of $49.99**

Dragon Express is an easy and fun speech recognition utility that introduces OS X Lion customers to voice recognition for the Mac. Put your words to work without the hassle of typing. Just speak and amazingly accurate results instantly appear in the Dragon Express window. You can dictate anything – even words that wouldn't be found in any dictionary – since Dragon Express is customized to recognize your voice and the words you use.

Turn Your Voice into Text
Simply open the Dragon Express utility and start talking. Your words will automatically begin to appear in the Dragon Express window. When you're done, Dragon Express will place the transcribed text into the application of your choice.

Easy to Install, Simple to Use
Download Dragon Express, complete a two-minute enrollment so that the utility can better recognize your unique voice, and start dictating. It's that easy. The utility is conveniently available at any time – since Dragon Express is loaded locally on your Mac, there's no need for network connectivity. To dictate, simply invoke the menu bar icon and start talking. When you're done, select the application in which you want your text to appear, and Dragon Express will place the text for you.

Amazing Accuracy
After a brief microphone set-up and voice training, users benefit from a trained profile customized for their unique voice. This profile yields better accuracy than a non-customized speech recognition tool, especially for users with accents. Add custom words to the Dragon Express vocabulary (such as acronyms and proper names) so that it is prepared to recognize the unique words and terms that you use.

Works with the Applications you Use Everyday
Dictate into the Dragon Express window and then route the transcribed text into any native OS X application on your Mac. It’s fast and easy to place your text wherever you need it: transfer icons within the Dragon Express window include the active application (such as Microsoft Word or Text Edit) as well as popular applications such as Mail, Facebook and Twitter. Or you copy it to the clipboard and paste it anywhere.

No Limit to Productivity
Dictate as much text as you’d like; there are no limitations on the amount of text you can dictate into the Dragon Express window. Dragon Express includes the ability to select and delete text by voice as well as the convenient “scratch that” command that can be used when you change your mind. But there’s no need to memorize voice commands – focus on capturing your thoughts and ideas instead.

Dragon Express Knows When to Listen
Dragon Express can be used with the internal microphone of your Mac, but a USB headset is recommended. (It is not designed to work with a wireless microphone or digital recorder.) Dragon Express "listens" for your voice when the Dragon Express window is open and stops transcribing your voice when you click off the window. When you invoke Dragon Express again, your text will be waiting in the window until you place it within a specific application – so you never need to worry about accidentally deleting or losing your text.

Read4Me reads your documents out loud using a wide variety of voices. You can save the audio to a file, or save it to AudioBook to listen to on the road. It's a great writing tool because listening to your text will catch errors that a spell checker won't, but it has the spell check to find the other errors, and it can open MS Word, Open Office, RTF, and HTML or other text documents.

It is very easy to change the speed of reading in words per minute, or to start, stop and select another voice.

Voice Coach is a unique feature of Read4me that allows you to embed pauses, pitch & rate changes into your text. Voice Coach tagging is essential in creating AudioBooks for poetry. Tagging is not always fully supported by all voices, but the classic voices can even sing with this feature (almost), other effects work best on the novelty voices.

OS X Lion supports speech in 27 languages and also English dialects such as British, Irish and Scottish. With OS X Lion you can download additional voices from Apple, for free. Installation can be a bit confusing, but the Help menu of Read4Me provides scripted assistance for downloading international voices. The Read4me support page on my website has a movie that shows how to do this.

Available for download are high quality voices for Arabic, Cantonese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Thai and Turkish.

When you require international languages for OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard you will need to install 3rd party voices (more info on the support page),

MacFamilyTree puts a new complexion on genealogy: modern, interactive, convenient and fast. Start exploring your family tree in a way generations of chroniclers before you would have loved to do.

In MacFamilyTree, entering persons, their relationships and cornerstone events in your family's history is easier than ever. Store photographies of your ancestors directly in their person profiles, preserve birth certificates, marriage certificates, excerpts from church registers or newspaper articles as sources which verify your data.

■ Interview contemporary witnesses and store audio and video recordings along with your own notes
■ Use the ToDo feature to stay ahead of your tasks, like investigating a person more closely
■ Sync your data with other Macs running MacFamilyTree or with MobileFamilyTree for iPhone/iPad
■ Search renowned internet sources from within MacFamilyTree and conveniently add the new information to your own data
■ The Web Export feature lets you publish your family tree as a website
■ The further enhanced GEDCOM import and export helps collaborating and exchanging information with a relative more easily

If you own an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, the separately available MobileFamilyTree application allows you to continue your research on the go. Save time that, otherwise, you'd spend scribbling notes and then transcribing them later on by directly entering the data in MobileFamilyTree. After the work is done, simply sync the new information with MacFamilyTree so your new discoveries will be up to date on your Mac, as well.

MacFamilyTree speaks 15 different languages. A comprehensive User Guide, regularly updated questions and answers and video tutorials on our website make your first steps as easy as possible. Start researching your family tree today with MacFamilyTree.

For using the Portuguese version of MacFamilyTree, Brazilian Portuguese has to be active on your Mac. This can be achieved by opening the system preferences and the language settings. Add Brazilian Portuguese as new language and drag it above "english".

For Mac users to make lists and stay organized. TaskPaper is a simple to-do list that’s surprisingly adept. Unlike standard organizers, TaskPaper gets out of your way so that you can get things done.

WORKS LIKE A TEXT EDITOR

FEELS LIKE A MAGIC PIECE OF PAPER

TaskPaper has a magic trick. It understands your list's structure and will instantly filter your list to show only items of interest. TaskPaper’s filter system is simple to use—focus on a particular project or tag with a single tap. It also supports advanced searching if need.

"A best-in-breed application, offering a perfect balance of efficiency and features."

With Leap you find things based on your natural memory of that file. “Hhmm it was a big photoshop file of a basketball court” or “Something I tagged important” or “A word document somewhere in my documents folder”. With the Finder though, it's more like “I think it might be called bball.psd and that I put it in the originals folder in images in the Project 29 folder which I think I put in Documents... nope, not there... where did I put it?"

Recapture the lost art of joyful concentration. Overcome procrastination. Rediscover the motivation within yourself.

Vitamin-R creates the optimal conditions for your brain to work at its best by structuring your work into short bursts of distraction-free, highly focused activity alternating with opportunities for renewal, reflection and intuition.

The built-in task logging and statistics features create a positive momentum towards productivity by providing visible feedback on your progress and achievements.

* Time Slice Your Work *
Vitamin-R breaks down large, vaguely defined tasks into a series of short "time slices" of between 10 and 30 minutes, each with specific, easily reachable and actionable objectives. During these time slices it keeps you focused on accomplishing only this one objective and provides you with mechanisms for dealing with interruptions, poor concentration, etc.

* Get Started *
Vitamin-R concentrates on getting you started allowing you to break through the resistance of procrastination and create a positive feedback loop of small achievements that get you closer to your ultimate aims. You will experience less stress caused by looming deadlines and a lack of clear direction, thus enabling you to enjoy guilt-free breaks that allow your intuition and creativity to emerge.

* Find Your Rhythm *
Each one of us is different. Finding out what works best for you is the key to true productivity. Vitamin-R helps you by giving you the tools to gain more awareness of how you spend your time, what works for you and what does not. Armed with this new knowledge, you can eliminate unproductive work patterns and discover the work rhythm that suits you best.

* Get It Out of Your Head Quickly *
Did you know that your short term memory can only hold 4-6 "chunks" of information? The slightest interruption and it's all gone and you have to start from scratch. That's why Vitamin-R provides you with the "Now & Later Board", complete with FastType magic, to give you a place to quickly dump all those things that go through your head and allow you to quickly return to your task.

* Make It Your Own *
Vitamin-R plugs into your life rather than trying to take it over. You can use it occasionally to overcome procrastination or mental blocks or re-organize your entire working life around the concepts that it embodies. It complements rather than replaces traditional to-do list managers, such as Things or OmniFocus for which direct integrations exist.

* Now With Cloud Synching! *
If you routinely work on multiple Macs, you willlove Vitamin-R's new ability to effortlessly synch your time slice log across the cloud using the free Dropbox service. Setup is as easy as ticking a checkbox.

Great for Email

Do you use different email signatures? You can easily insert your customized signatures with a few keystrokes. You can even include a photo or logo!

If you answer the same questions over and over, you can create TextExpander snippets that contain the responses you frequently use, and never have to type them out again.

Correct Your Misspellings

You can add TextExpander's autocorrection snippet groups, containing words that are commonly misspelled. If you type a misspelled word, TextExpander can automatically replace it with the correct spelling. You can even add your own frequently-misspelled words to your TextExpander snippets.

Insert Dates, Times, Special Characters and Accented Words

Insert the current time or date by typing a short abbreviation. TextExpander comes with date and time snippets built-in that you can format. You can even use TextExpander to insert a specified date in the future.

Snippets: Easy to Create, Use and Organize

It's easy to create a snippet and assign it an abbreviation. You can even create snippets on the fly, using hotkey shortcuts. If you've forgotten your abbreviation, you can easily search your snippets via the menu bar, or even have TextExpander suggest snippets based on what you've typed.

By default, TextExpander works in any program you can type in. You can also specify which programs you want TextExpander to expand in.

Snippets can be organized into groups. You can even apply different settings on a per group basis, such as excluding programs that TextExpander works in.

★ "...it's a great program to have if you plan to give a speech." - TUAW.com

The most advanced and full-featured professional teleprompter for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch is now available for the Mac! This is no simple port from iOS.

Teleprompt+ is a simple yet powerful professional teleprompter for your Mac. Perfect for presenters, lecturers, students, teachers, broadcasters, podcasters, filmmakers, musicians, business professionals, or anyone who would benefit from having a powerful visual aid while engaged in a public speaking activity.
