AuthorTec Find’n Highlight

Find’n Highlight searches your document for a list of potential words or phrases and highlights any that are found. Searches can be performed multiple times against the same document and different highlight coloring can be used for each search. Find’n Highlight provides an easy method of locating the searched for words and phrases, allowing you to alter them if you wish. You can create and save your own custom list of words or phrases to search for, and this tool includes nine default search lists:

  • Adjectives

  • Adverbs

  • Compound words

  • Interjections

  • Negative words

  • Positive words

  • Prepositions

  • Pronouns

  • Verbs

AuthorTec Extract Objects

Extract Objects copies various content from an active Word document and inserts them into either a new or existing document. Charts, Equations, Images, Shapes, Grouped Shapes, SmartArt, Tables, Text Boxes and even Custom Selections of Content can be easily transferred from one document to another.

AuthorTec Accessibility

Accessibility will scan an entire document or just a portion of it and look for inserted objects that require Alternative Text. You can search for all objects or just a subset of them.

  • This tool includes a “Generate text” option that automatically generates Alternate Text from the data it has about the object. You can also specify if AuthorTec is to only add new Alt Text descriptions to objects that are not already fully described.

  • To help you improve on auto-generated Alt Tex, this tool also proves a “Review and Edit” function that allows you to move forward and back among the objects and spend time improving what the screen reader will “say” about your inserted objects.

The following statistics are gathered about your active Word document:

  • Bookmarks – only visible bookmarks are counted. Hidden bookmarks, such as ones used in the Table of Contents are not counted.
