Blaze is a SimpleText replacement word processor that has added features like font scalability and a shortcuts menu.

International Spell Checking is only one of the numerous power user features Blaze has to offer! When it comes to ease of use and ability to customize the look of your document, Blaze cannot be beat.

With our popular text editor, users have the ability to change the characteristics of their text instantly. Size, font, color, and style are all easily changed, and entire sections can be changed to all lowercase, uppercase, or title case in a flash. Document editing has never been so simple.

With the Mac OS X version of this powerful writing software, users are able to use Apple's built-in Text to Speech feature with any document, as well as Apple's built-in spell check engine. However, these aren't the only features integrated with operating systems.

Because compatibility between platforms is a big issue these days, Blaze has the function to convert your text document to a PC-DOS or UNIX format easily, as well as the ability to read and write to Rich Text (RTF) files without a problem.

One of Blaze's major features, something most other cheap software text editors are missing, is the option to save your document as a HTML file or send it as an email - no need to memorize html codes! Blaze can do all of these things with a few mouse clicks, saving you time and trouble, as well as doubling as a HTML editor.
