I’m very excited to be able to announce the Text2Go 3.5 beta is now available for download at Text2Go 3.5 Beta. It’s quite stable and I encourage you to download it and give it a try. Having said that, if you do find any bugs, please let us know. This new version includes the following enhancements.

  • Support for Internet Explorer 8. Text2Go has it’s own accelerator that can be added to IE8. If you still using IE7 or heaven forbid, IE6, then upgrade to IE8 immediately! IE8 is a huge advance over IE7 and a pleasure to use.

  • Support for all major browsers, including Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari (for Windows) and Opera. This has been achieved by creating a Bookmarklet (a little snippet of javascript code that can be bookmarked and added to your favourites toolbar) for each of the Text2Go commands. This approach adds no overhead to your browser and is highly configurable – you only need add the Text2Go commands that you use.

  • Enhanced speech playback controls for listening to text at your computer. There is now a dedicated Speak button on the Text2Go toolbar and it’s also possible to pause and resume speech playback.

  • ¬†Enhanced error reporting. There is now a Support menu item in Text2Go which automatically creates a new email message and attaches a zipped copy of the Text2Go error log. This will better help us track down bugs and problems specific to your machine. The Text2Go error log is in plain text so you can satisfy yourself that it doesn’t contain any personal information.
