P C - S I G ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Welcome to the world of Shareware, state of the art software you can actually try before you buy. Shareware, a term coined in the early eighties, refers to the method of distribution chosen by the software authors. With shareware, you can receive a program and put it through its paces without having to pay for it. If you find the program useful, and choose to keep the program, then you pay a modest registration fee to the author. For the last nine years, PC-SIG has been providing shareware and public domain software to its customers and members. Since 1982 PC-SIG has developed an unprecedented library of shareware programs, constantly updated, consistently strong in every category. Our library of shareware contains over 3500 titles divided into 120 logical categories. Every program we add to the library is thoroughly reviewed and tested to insure that each one meets the high standards of reliability and value we insist upon and you expect. As a result, our library doesn't contain every shareware program available, just those that really work. PC-SIG has grown into the premier distributor of shareware and and shareware information by producing shareware collections on CD-ROM, publishing an encyclopedia of shareware, and by publishing Shareware Magazine, a bi-monthly magazine distributed world-wide. Quality and support - guaranteed. All of our programs are guaranteed virus free. We've isolated our systems and check every program submitted to insure that no viruses make their way to your computer or ours. Our support staff is available by phone as well as on our BBS to help you with questions about installation and operation of PC-SIG's products. Through our network of international distributors, PC- SIG strives to bring you the most current, exciting, technically advanced software available as shareware. If you can't find the software you need in PC-SIG's library, it may well not exist.

S H A R E W A R E M A G A Z I N E ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Shareware Magazine has distinguished itself as the only internationally distributed periodical devoted to the use and business of shareware. Shareware Magazine provides detailed reviews of new products, hard-hitting comparisons of shareware programs with regular retail software, and timely information about changes in the industry and the latest technology. Intriguing columnists and regular features add to the excitement. The beginners section sheds light on new user's concerns regarding everything from choosing the right operating system to alleviating the intimidation of using on-line systems. Educational sections focus on how low cost shareware can aid in classroom learning, curriculum development, and as a forum for discussing the impact of computers and technology in schools. Graphics Gallery renders expert advice and suggestions on how to better work with graphics, desktop publishing, CAD systems, and the Windows environment. Programmers benefit from others experience in developing new programs or polishing existing ones as well as choosing the right programming language. And columnists provide that subjective component, sometimes controversial, that calls for a closer look at the way we compute and how shareware effects what we do. Published bimonthly, Shareware Magazine is available on a subscription or at your local newsstand or computer bookstore. In conjunction with PC-SIG, there are special benefits for subscribers as well as opportunities for discount purchases from PC-SIG.

VOCABULARY POWER Page 5 THE FILES MENU: --------------------- New Load First Word List --------------------- Create... Edit Title... Review/Change/Add Print Word List Manipulate Word List Save Word List --------------------- Shell to DOS --------------------- Exit --------------------- NEW: This selection removes all vocabulary words and clues from the computer's memory. The name of the word list is displayed in the status line. ABOUT THE WORD LISTS: Each word list can have up to 100 vocabulary words and related clues. All files created by VOCABULARY POWER may be copied and erased using normal DOS commands. The word lists can also be copied using the Back Up selection of the Extra Menu. Avoid using the & character in a word list name. The & character is used in our companion product CROSSWORD POWER. Word lists created with VOCABULARY POWER are 100% compatible for use with CROSSWORD POWER. ABOUT THE VOCABULARY WORDS (ANSWERS): Vocabulary words may be up to 17 characters long. Any character except the space, comma, asterisk *, double quote ", vertical bar |, and number sign # can be used in a vocabulary word. Numbers can also be used to create math activities. VOCABULARY POWER Page 6 ABOUT THE CLUES (DEFINITIONS): Each clue (definition) can be up to 100 characters long. Long clues are automatically divided if necessary. Any character except the double quote " and comma can be used in a clue. The F1 function key can be pressed to reveal a help screen to provide more information about editing the vocabulary words and clues. MANIPULATING THE WORD LIST: Vocabulary words and clues can be automatically changed to upper and lower case letters, capitalize just the first letter of the word or clue, sorted by length, alphabetized, and randomized. WORD AND CLUE FORMATTING: The words can be changed back and forth between capital and lower case letters. It is easier to work with all capital letters. However, sometimes lower case letters are necessary. For example, in chemistry, CO means Carbon Monoxide and Co means Cobalt. This program treats capital letters and lower case letters as two different letters. This means that words will not intersect at a common letter if one is a capital letter and the other is lower case letter. HINTS: Placing the longest words into a word list first does not guarantee that more total words will be placed into a word search. Each time a word list is randomized, the order of the vocabulary words and clues is changed. Teachers can use different activities to stress the same vocabulary words with different formats. The different activities allow for the different learning styles of students. VOCABULARY POWER Page 7 THE WORDTOOLS MENU: ------------------------------- Word Search - Display Single Word Search - Print Multiple ------------------------------- Bingo Card - Display Single Bingo Card - Print Multiple ------------------------------- CryptoList - Display Single CryptoList - Print Multiple ------------------------------- Juggle Words - Display Single Juggle Words - Print Multiple ------------------------------- Flash Cards Printed ------------------------------- GENERAL INFORMATION: When any of the Display Single selections are made, the word list that is displayed on the status line (at the bottom of the screen) is loaded into memory. The first activity and appropriate PRINT MENU are displayed. For example, when WORD SEARCH - DISPLAY SINGLE is selected, a single word search maze is displayed. The PRINT WORD SEARCH MENU is displayed in the upper left corner. You are given the following options: <S>TUDENT MAZE PRINTED: This option prints the student word search with the extra letters. <T>EACHER MAZE PRINTED: This option prints the answer key without the extra letters. <U>NUSED WORDS DISPLAYED: This option allows you to display and print words from the word list that were not inserted into the maze. VOCABULARY POWER Page 8 <F>LIP STUDENT/TEACHER MAZE: Student or teacher mazes can be quickly viewed. <N>EW MAZE DISPLAYED: The words are randomized again, then a completely new maze is displayed and available for printing. <L>EAVE THIS MENU: This selection is used to return to the regular pull down menus. When the PRINT MULTIPLE selection is made, two questions will be asked. First you will be asked if you want a teacher (answer key) printed with each student form. Then you will be asked how many copies of the activity you want printed. You can automatically print up to 40 different activities (Word Searches, Vocabulary Bingo cards, Quizzes, etc.) when this selection is made. WORDSEARCH DETAILS: The Word Search size is selected on the SETTINGS MENU. The maze size can be varied from 3 to 24 columns and from 3 to 20 rows. Up to 100 words will be placed automatically in each maze. Words will be arranged forwards, backwards, horizontal, vertical, and diagonally. A random spot is chosen for the first word to be placed into the maze. Then other words will attempt to intersect the first word. When no more word placements can be made, the WORDSEARCH PRINT MENU is displayed. CRYPTOLIST DETAILS: The word list is randomized before choosing 20 words. If your word list has less than 20 words, the entire word list will be used. Each letter of the vocabulary word will be substituted by a different letter. All words on the list use the same letter substitution. VOCABULARY POWER Page 9 For example, the word CELERY could have been randomized as RXJXWM. The letter R was substituted for the letter C in celery. The letter X was substituted for the letter E. Since there are two E's in CELERY, there are two X's, at the second and fourth positions in the word. Every word of this print out uses the same letter substitution. If the word PLANE was also on this list, the last letter would also have to be an X. A grid is printed at the bottom of the student paper for help. The substitution key is displayed on the screen and printed on the teacher key. Each additional cryptolist that is displayed and printed uses a different group of 20 words and a different letter substitution method. JUGGLE WORDS DETAILS: The word list is randomized before choosing 20 words. If your word list has less than 20 words, the entire word list will be used. The letters of the vocabulary word will be randomized. Each additional juggle word activity that is displayed and printed uses 20 different words and a different letter randomization. BINGO CARD DETAILS: Your word list must have at least 25 words to make bingo cards. When this selection is made a bingo card is displayed with the PRINT CARD MENU. Each vocabulary bingo card fits neatly on a 8 1/2" by 11" piece of paper. PRINTING MULTIPLE VOCABULARY BINGO CARDS: This selection allows automatic printing of up to 40 different Vocabulary Bingo Cards. FLASH CARDS (OR BINGO CALLING CARDS) DETAILS: The flash cards used for vocabulary drills can also be used as calling cards for vocabulary bingo. When this selection is made, a menu listing 6 different options is displayed. The calling (flash) cards allow printing the words and clues on regular 8 1/2" by 11" paper or 3" by 5" cards. The words and clues may be printed on the same or opposite sides of the paper. VOCABULARY POWER Page 10 When the vocabulary words and clues are printed on opposite sides of the paper, you will have to turn the paper over to print the back side. The vocabulary words will be printed in expanded larger print size if an Epson FX, Epson LQ, IBM Proprinter, or Okidata printer is being used. Additional menu help can help center the paper in the printer. ASCII FILE NAMING DETAILS: If an activity is saved as an ASCII file, the following pattern is used to name the file: The first part of the file name uses the same name as the word list. The extension part (the three letters after the period) varies depending on the activity and if it is the teacher or student copy. The first letter of the extension will always be V (for VOCABULARY). The last letter will either be a S for STUDENT or T for TEACHER. The second letter varies with the activity. The second letter uses the following pattern Wordsearch = W, Cryptolist = C, Juggle word = J, Multiple choice quiz = M, and matching Quiz = Q For example, the file HOMONYMS.VCT uses the HOMONYMS.WL word list. The file is (C) Cryptolist of the (T) Teachers activity. The original word lists use the extension .WL The word list files are saved as ASCII files to make spell checking easier. If you use the spell checker of your word processor, and your words are changed, make sure to save the word list file in ASCII format. Many word processors use special formatting codes when files are saved the regular way. Saving of the file in ASCII format prevents saving of the formatting codes. VOCABULARY POWER Page 11 THE TESTTOOLS MENU: ---------------------------------- Matching Quiz - Display Single Matching Quiz - Print Multiple ---------------------------------- Multiple Choice - Display Single Multiple Choice - Print Multiple ---------------------------------- MATCHING QUIZ DETAILS: Word lists are randomized before choosing 20 words. If the word list has less than 20 words, the entire word list will be used. Clues for these 20 words will be randomized and displayed. When long clues are displayed, the first part is displayed with a plus (+) sign to indicate more letters. Long clues are automatically wrapped for proper appearance when printed. A blank is printed in front of the word number for the student choice. The correct response letter is printed in front of the number on the teacher key. Each additional quiz that is printed uses a different group of 20 words and a different random answer pattern. Up to 40 different forms can be printed automatically. Making different matching quizzes has never been this easy. MULTIPLE CHOICE QUIZ DETAILS: The word list is randomized before choosing 20 words. If your word list has less than 20 words, the entire word list will be used. The clues for these 20 words will be randomized and displayed. Then conflicting choices (wrong answers) will be chosen from all words in the word list. Then the correct answer and three conflicting answers are randomized. Long clues and long answers are automatically wrapped for proper appearance when printed. A blank is printed in front of the word number for the student choice. The letter of the correct response is printed in front of the item number on the teacher key. Each additional quiz that is printed uses a different group of 20 words and a different random answer pattern and a different set of conflicting choices. Up to 40 different forms can be printed automatically.

IGNORE PRINTER STATUS <Yes or No>: VOCABULARY POWER always checks the status of the parallel printer port before sending any data. This normally works quite well. However, if you map a parallel port to a serial one by the MODE command, or if you have a non-standard, or very fast computer, you may experience problems. VOCABULARY POWER might actually think that your printer port (LPT1:) is busy when you know it is not. If you have printer problems like this, select Y for Yes to ignore the printer status. SYMBOL SET <Yes or No>: If a LaserJet or DeskJet printers was selected, you will be asked which symbol set to use. Symbol sets 10U PC-8, 11U PC-8 (Danish/Norwegian), and 12U PC-850 are supported. These symbol sets include the line drawing characters needed by the bingo cards. If your laser compatible printer can not support one of these three symbol sets, also set the box drawing selection on the Settings Menu to NO. BOX DRAWING CHARACTERS: If your printer prints foreign language characters around the squares on the BINGO cards, this should be set to NO. Then dashes and plus signs will be substituted for the BOX characters PRINTER PITCH: Select a printer pitch supported by your printer. VOCABULARY POWER Page 15 SET PRINTER TO LETTER QUALITY: Depending on the printer, the work sheets may be printed in either draft of letter quality mode. SELECT PRINTER FONT: LaserJet, DeskJet and Epson LQ printers support different fonts. The LaserJet II and DeskJet printers have built-in fixed width 10 and 16.66 (condensed) pitch Courier fonts. Printing 12 and 15 pitch fonts require downloaded fixed-width fonts or fixed-width font cartridges. The EpsonLQ optional font module is also supported giving the user six additional fonts.

VOCABULARY POWER Page 16 THE EXTRA MENU: ------------------------- Reset Printer Advance Paper Form Feed ------------------------- Back Up Word List Files Change Screen Colors ------------------------- About Vocabulary Power ------------------------- The first three selections of the Extra Menu send printer codes to the printer. The first selection RESETS the printer to the top of the page to the current paper position in the printer.
