New Build Release - Little Reader BETA 1.03

We just released another new build for all of you beta testers, and inch by inch we are clearing out the bugs and ironing out the kinks in Little Reader!

yesNOTE: Your previous version will need to be uninstalled, but you do not have to do it manually.  Simply click on the installation file and it will prompt you to uninstall your old program and proceed to do it for you.  If you've already added new words, not to worry, just make sure NOT to choose to delete all of your existing files during the uninstall.  When you open your new Little Reader, your files will still be there. 

You can check your beta version by clicking on the 'HELP' dropdown on the upper left corner of Little Reader and clicking on 'About Little Reader.'

Here’s a list of changes and improvements we've made:

Playlist and Category Buttons
When you view the Playback and Word Library screen, you will no longer have to click on a drop down menu to change the view between playlists and categories – the buttons will help you identify what list you are viewing!



Only Esc Key - Keyboard Lock
Having a problem with your baby banging on the keyboard? Now, when you use the Auto Forward feature, you will have an option to enable the Only Esc Key function which virtually locks your keyboard with the exception of your Esc key.



Additional Pointer Settings
We’ve added a setting that will auto-position the pointer at the start of the word each time it is played back. With this new feature, you can add or remove that extra-click before the pronunciation begins for your playback!



Auto-Import Confirmation Message
We’ve added another dialogue box that pops up whenever you upload new categories, so you’ll be able to confirm whether or not you want to proceed with the auto-import.



Sound FX = Picture Audio
We have changed the name of Sound FX files to Picture Audio, for users to better understand that this is the audio that accompanies pictures, and it is possible to attach audio files that not only contain sound effects but also voice recordings, music, or other narrations.



Drop-down View for Playlists Containing Whole Categories
When you create a playlist which consists of a whole category, you will now be able to view the entire contents of the category by clicking on the drop down button beside it.



Download Button
You are now able to view a list of Little Reader categories available for download at our forums, just by clicking on the Download button on your Little Reader.



Playback controls
We have enabled additional playback controls to give you more control over how you can show your presentations!
  •  To go forward - Left mouse click, right arrow, space bar, or enter
  •  To go back - Right mouse click or left arrow
  •  To repeat slide - Mouse wheel click or down button



Little Reader Tutorial Button
We've changed the "Quick Tour" button on the Home Screen to "Tutorials" and this is where you will be able to view all user tutorials for Little Reader.  We will also release other tutorials for you in the future, so please stay tuned.



Automatic Font Size Feature
This option will display your words in the biggest font size recommended as per your screen settings. It will also auto-shrink the font size to accommodate longer words and phrases, intelligently fitting them into one line and breaking them up into two lines as it sees fit.



BrillKids Latest
Want to have a quick peek at the forums while you’re using your Little Reader? Now it’s as easy as clicking on the BrillKids Latest button! You’ll be able to see a list of the newest posts and replies in the forums.



And here are some of the more significant bug fixes:
  •  Error importing/playing categories (Parameter Not Valid) – FIXED!
  •  Disappearing mouse error (Invalid Hook Handle) – FIXED!


================================================================

New Build Release - Little Reader BETA 1.02

We just released a new build for all of you beta testers, and we're happy to say that we've taken some of your suggestions and added some new features to Little Reader!

NOTE: Your previous version will need to be uninstalled, but you do not have to do it manually.  Simply click on the installation file and it will prompt you to uninstall your old program and proceed to do it for you.  If you've already added new words, not to worry, just make sure NOT to choose to delete all of your existing files during the uninstall.  When you open your new Little Reader, your files will still be there.  yes

You can check your beta version by clicking on the 'HELP' dropdown on the upper left corner of Little Reader and clicking on 'About Little Reader.'

Here's a list of new functions:

Flash Playback mode - Message at the beginning of playback
If you playback a playlist that is set in Flash mode, you will now see an opening screen prompting you to begin. This will help you to know what to do next instead of just seeing a blank screen at the beginning.

Auto-importing of new categories and playlists
We've just made importing new files to your Little Reader much easier! Now, if you download a new category or playlist file for Little Reader, you just need to double click on the file and it will automatically import itself into your program! We've also made the File Downloads section for Little Reader more convenient for you. To visit the section, click here.

Also make sure you check out the DOWNLOAD button on your Little Reader - you will see that it will now show you all available Little Reader word sets to download!

Updated Quick Tour
To help you get more acquainted with Little Reader and its functions, we've made a new Quick Tour for you - you can access it by pressing on the Quick Tour button on your Little Reader's Home Page.  If you're still seeing the old Quick Tour, make sure you right click on the Quick Tour screen and select 'REFRESH.'

Different highlight colors for Playlists and Categories
To help you further differentiate Categories from Playlists, we've made the highlight colors different - You may see this by going to your Playback Menu. Toggle between 'Play From: Categories' and 'Play From: Playlists' and you will see that the entries you highlight will be colored differently. If you'd like to know more about the difference between a Playlist and a Category, click here.

Pointer Mode - Extra-click to start pronunciation playback
Whenever you have checked the POINTER option to activate the pointer, by default it will require you to click one more time after the word is displayed before the pronunciation audio is played back. This will give you time to position your pointer at the start of the word before playing back the recording, so that you may move the pointer along the bottom of the word as the pronunciation audio is played back.

Other Minor Changes:

Updated action word video files
We just removed some playback errors in the Action Words category. The files will now play smoother on your PCs.

Help menu - Added link to Forum - We've also included a link to bring you directly to the beta forums - just click on the 'HELP' dropdown on the upper left corner of Little Reader and click on Get Help From Forum.'
