Amazon Shop buttons are programmatically attached to all reviews, regardless of products' final review scores. Our parent company, IDG, receives advertisement revenue for shopping activity generated by the links. Because the buttons are attached programmatically, they should not be interpreted as editorial endorsements.

  • Program can control applications
  • Excellent accuracy out of the box
  • Works in just about all programs


  • Some words cannot be trained
