Spellex releases Australian Medical and Pharmaceutical spelling software

The US-based Spellex Corporation has announced an Australian version of their medical and pharmaceutical spelling software, which integrates with products from Microsoft as well as a range of other programs.

The release includes thousands of new medical and pharmaceutical words with proper spelling specific to Australia.

The products are pitched as an alternative to paper medical dictionaries, pharmaceutical word books, and medical spellers that are based on American English words. According to the developers, by adding “Spellex Medical 2010” and “Spellex Pharmaceutical 2010” to the common Australian English language lexicon, the spell checkers will verify correctly spelt medical and pharmaceutical words and provide correct spelling choices for incorrectly spelt terms.

The spell checkers also allow users to verify unsure spelling of medical and pharmaceutical words by phonetic or typographical search as they type. Both the standard Australian English language dictionary and the Spellex medical and pharmaceutical dictionaries are checked simultaneously.

Spellex Medical 2010 adds more than 300,000 medical words from over 70 medical specialties to the basic speller. Spellex checks for accurate spelling of medical and surgical terms, procedures, diseases, drug names, acronyms, eponyms, medical devices, abbreviations, Greek terms and diacritical markings such as Behçet’s syndrome and Legg-Calvé-Waldenström disease.

Prices for the medical and pharmaceutical dictionaries start at $99 AUD for single users, with multi-user and enterprise licenses also available.
