STAZ Software, Inc., makers of FutureBASIC^3 for the Mac, have announced a free update to
YSpeak. YSpeak is a utility originally developed by Phil Yates designed to help speech- and motor-disabled Mac users communicate. Yates has since passed away, but the software continues to be maintained and updated on the STAZ Software Web site.

YSpeak 1.3 sports the following improvements:
command-a now works for select all.
command key for auto complete word switched from command-a to command-; .
opening and closing the help window could cause a crash.
the predict window sometimes ended up offscreen.
command-up and -down arrow no longer changes the sound volume. These routines were unstable and have therefore been eliminated.
the code was tightened in many areas to keep it up to date and insure stability.
Distributed as freeware, the software is available for download now. Source code is also available under a special license.
