Spelling Software - User Settings
This is old documentation for versions 1.6 and lower. Check out the new documentation here.
To change the user settings, the
user must click the User Settings under the tools menu. The user settings
that can be altered are:
Only, Audio Only, or Text and Audio
Upcoming Words During Test
Definition Button During Test
Case During Spelling Test
Application in Compact Mode
S.M.S. Server for Audio
Word for so Many Seconds
Correct or Wrong for so Many Seconds
The first option allows the user
to specify how the test is administered. Text Only will show the word for a
short time and disappear. Audio Only will say the word without displaying it.
Text and audio will do both.
The second option allows a text
box on the test center to depict the upcoming words in a list. It also shows
the words that need to be retried.
The third option places a
definition button on the test center so that when a user encounters an
unfamiliar word, the user can click that button and transfer to a dictionary
website for the definition of that word.
The fourth option is case
sensitivity during the spelling tests. If it is checked then the spelling word
will be wrong if both the letters and the case of those letters do not match.
If it is unchecked the spelling word will be correct if the letters match but
the case does not.
The fifth option determines if the
application starts in the compact mode or not. The compact mode brings the user
directly to the test center with the other tools available from a menu at the
top of the form. When a user does not have the compact mode checked, they are
brought to a screen with the tools displayed inside that screen. When this is
changed a user must logout and log back in for the change to take affect.
The sixth option determines if a
list is created when words are spelled wrong. The list will be called "User Name"'s
Error List. The words that are spelled wrong will be copied to this list so that
they can be practiced later.
The seventh option sets the length
of time the user wants the word to be shown before it disappears. This can be
changed to whatever the user desires.
The last option sets the length of time the message is
shown after the word is either correctly spelled or misspelled before starting
the next word. When these values are changed, click the Submit button to save
the users desired settings.
Under the Email Settings tab, the
user can enable email status reports to be sent to those emails in the center
list box. The name and email of the user is placed in the first two text boxes.
The Subject Box will be the subject of the email that will be sent. It is
recommended you fill in the SMTP box. Without the SMTP box being filled, the
emails are not guaranteed to be received by those included in your list. Your
ISP normally provides you this information. In order to add additional emails,
type the email in the last box and click Add. To remove an email, select it
and click Remove. When finished click the Submit button.
