The ACCENTUATOR for Word 2000 is a new typing utility for Greek monotonic and polytonic texts.

Available for Windows '98, Windows '95, Windows NT 4.0, Windows Me and Windows 2000.

It works through MS-Word '97 and it uses Unicode fonts.

This means that it follows the internationally accepted standard for the Greek polytonic character set, as it was encoded by the Unicode Consortium which is the definitive encoding standard permitting the compatibiity in all platforms amongst fonts that are created by different manufacturers .

At launch, the ACCENTUATOR launches MS-Word 2000. As you type a text, the ACCENTUATOR replaces the characters with Greek polytonic or monotonic ones.

Polytonic typing is made very easy.

The consonants and the non-accented vowels are inserted in the same was as in the monotonic system which you already use.

For each breathing, accent or combination of the two, the ACCENTUATOR uses a certain key which can be defined by the user. When you press a breathing or accent key no character is inserted. If following that you press a vowel key then you will have a vowel with the breathing or the accent you had chosen.

With the ACCENTUATOR, you can produce the following breathings, accents and combinations:

1. Acute accent.
2. Smooth breathing & acute.
3. Smooth breathing & grave.
4. Smooth breathing & circumflex.
5. Rough breathing.
6. Rough breathing & acute.

7. Rough breathing & acute.
8. Rough breathing & circumflex.
9. Acute accent.
10. Grave accent.
11. Diaeresis.
12. Diaeresis & acute.
13. Diaeresis & grave.
14. Diaeresis & circumflex.
15. Long vowel.
16. Short vowel.
17. Circumflex.
18. Iota subscript.
19. Semicolon.

The above breathings, accents and combinations are produced according to the rules that apply to vowel accentuation, including the "r" (rho) with the grave or acute accent.

The ACCENTUATOR comes with a number of tools which make it easy to customize it and facilitate the insertion of special characters which are useful in Greek texts.

The extra functions are the following

Conversion of polytonic texts in older polytonic formats.
ACCENTUATOR for MS-Word uses Unicode fonts. If in the past you have used a different polytonic format, then these texts are not compatible with Unicode fonts. In order to rectify this problem you have to convert them.

The ACCENTUATOR can perform this conversion in an easy and quick way so that you may continue processing your old texts. The ACCENTUATOR can convert texts from a) MAGENTA's ACCENTUATOR 1.0 for Windows 3.1 & 95, b) Apple's polytonic format as it is used in Apple Macintosh computers, and c) GR-SOFT's polytonic format.

To convert the texts you need to have them in .Ô×Ô format.

You can toggle the keyboard with a custom keyboard shortcut. Thus, when you type in Greek you can use this keyobard shortcut in order to type in English or use the characters of a different language without having to change the font.

Insertion of special symbols and characters
which are included in the fonts but cannot produced through the keyboard. Such characters are e.g. currency symbols, the copyright symbol, upper and lower numerals, coptic symbols, etc.

Creation of new keyoboards, that is to say your favourite keyboard shortcuts for the production of breathings, accents and combinations of the two. Thus, you can customize the ACCENTUATOR in the manner that is most convenient to you.

Customizing the keyboard shortcut which launches and closes the ACCENTUATOR. If this shortcut is already used by a different program or is not convenient, you can create a new one.

Changing the interface language. If your Greek is not good enough or your PC does not support it you can see all ACCENTUATOR messages and menus in English.
