Release notes

May 2022

Alinea has been improved. Our 1.8 version in now available. What’s new? We’ve added the option to block the automatic spell check in text notes while working in PDF-documents. This option wasn’t possible in version 1.7. Besides that, we’ve increased the number of words in the wordlists. You can choose up to almost 83.000 words in the English wordlist. As a student you can get more support during your writing. We also added new shortcut keys to Alinea, which make it much easier to insert thing. This saves time while working with Alinea.

March 2022

In the last few months, we worked hard to release new updates for the webapp of Alinea. We want to keep you updated about the most useful improvements and fixes.

The performance of low-end Chromebooks had been improved. This makes opening files from the Cloud drives much faster. Your students don’t have to wait anymore to open a document from their drive. Besides that, we have released new voices:

  • English: Tessa (South African), Sangeeta (Indian), Rishi (Indian), Moira (Irish), Evan (US)
  • Russian: Katya, Yuri, Milena*
  • Ukrainian: Lesya*

*The addition of the Russian and Ukrainian voices in Alinea could be helpful for the teaching Ukrainian/Russian refugees due to the war in Ukraine. This makes it easier for teachers to help these pupils with reading in their own native language.

Working in Alinea with your own native accent/language was never this easy!

 See all the improvements and fixes.
