Founded in 1985 in California's legendary Silicon Valley when the personal computer revolution was just getting started, Inductel is a pioneer in software development for PC's and Macs.  Our founder, computer engineer/programmer Allan Pekery, quickly saw the demand for high quality dictionaries in digital format.  So, he bought the publication rights to several great print dictionaries, obtained some scanners and OCR equipment, put together an enthusiastic team of programmers and data processors, and Inductel was up and running.  Inductel's mission is twofold with our first aim being to develop and maintain a library of high quality, reasonably priced word processing tools and reference works as computer software. Our second mission is to advance the study and application of computer generated artificial intelligence.

Most Spell Checkers are Limited

Most word processing programs have spell checkers. But, most spell checkers can't correct medical, legal, scientific, or technical spelling errors. That’s because they only have a general dictionary. It can spell check only general English. That can be very frustrating when you need to check spelling on other types of words. What can you do?

Some people compile their own custom dictionaries. But that can take forever. You may need specialized spelling help now.

That’s where we come in. We’re Inductel and we have been compiling custom spelling dictionaries, including medical, since 1985. Our custom dictionaries are comprehensive, accurate, up to date, and proven.

How Inductel Spellers Work

Microsoft Word is an excellent word processing program, but you may already know that its built-in spellchecker doesn't work very well on certain words, medical terms for instance. We’ve solved that problem. For example, our Medical Spell Checker boosts the spell checking capabilities of Microsoft Word, and other popular word processors, enabling them to spell check medical terms as they type.

It works within your Microsoft Office, or other word processing program, as it spell checks documents, reports, etc. Here’s an example. Below is a Microsoft Word document spell check run on an article about a new drug, Brilinta. The drug name was misspelled “Brilinte”.

In the first picture, the Inductel Medical Spell Checker was turned “off.” In the second picture, the Inductel Medical Spell Checker was turned “on.” The spell check caught the error and fixed it.

Inductel "off".

Inductel "on".

It’s fast, integrates seamlessly with your word processing program, and you can spell check ordinary English words and medical words at the same time!  All Inductel Spellers work like that.

Inductel Has Several Types of Spellers

There may be uncounted numbers of disciplines each having there own special words.  How can a word processing person be sure the reports and other documents they prepare are free of spelling errors.  It's not easy. 

 Over the years, we have compiled custom dictionaries covering many disciplines including medicine, law, chemistry, biology, physics, electronics, computer science, and mechanical engineering. 

Perhaps we can help you.

Custom Dictionary

What is a custom dictionary? A custom dictionary is a list of words not in the standard computer dictionary but that an author wants accepted by the spell checker as correct. Custom dictionaries are used by word processing programs, such as Microsoft Office Word, and other computer applications like PowerPoint, and Excel. Users may add words to or delete words from their custom dictionaries. Additions to this dictionary could include names, acronyms, new words, and other such entries. Users may compile their own custom dictionaries, or may acquire them from other sources. There are companies, such as Inductel, who compile custom dictionaries and make them available to businesses, organizations, schools, and the general public.

Inductel has been compiling custom dictionaries since 1985. In that time Inductel has assembled extensive medical, legal, scientific, technical, and general word lists from which it develops custom dictionaries.

Inductel’s word lists are compiled from a variety of authoritative references, journals, and textbooks and contain the terms you need.

Custom dictionaries are employed by people who transcribe, report, bill, record, and otherwise process words including transcriptionists, nurses, doctors, attorneys, scientists, engineers, and students.
