I somewhat agree regarding the different versions and names.
On a positive note, they do have a Survey and will recommend a specific version based on customers' needs.

They also provide a phone number.

It would be nice to just have a simple table highlighting the features and differences across versions.
I've only used it briefly so I don't have an informed opinion. I will post a more thorough review at a later date.

I'm interested to know if the next version will be AceReader Pro Deluxe Plus Super Ultra Mega-Platinum Ultimate Extreme.

Surely the names of this suite of programs could be simplified into something that makes a bit more sense and serves to inform rather than confuse, as they do currently.

Looking briefly over your website, I can't find any semblance of a logical pattern to your naming conventions, which as I already stated serves only to confuse your potential customers.

When you need to put descriptions such as "(Single User Home Edition)" and "(Network School Edition)" next to the product names, and even include a survey so that customers can figure out which version they're after, it's a pretty clear warning bell that you've made things a bit too complicated.

I think you should consider these names:
AceReader Home (formerly AceReader Pro)
AceReader Home (Multi-User) (formerly AceReader Pro Deluxe)
AceReader School (formerly AceReader Pro Deluxe Plus)
AceReader School (Multi-User)/(Network) (formerly AceReader Pro Deluxe Network)

This way your potential customers understand the differences without having to consult a chart, and you don't get caught up in the excessive and needless descriptives that really only take away from the name and brand.

Amen.

I was personally looking for one equipped with a hypergate and and game-play from the Original Escape Velocity to break up the monotony.

Seriously though, homeboys naming scheme makes a hell of a lot more sense to me than the one thats currently in place. Im sure I could go to your site and figure out the difference, but thats borderline making me do work, which I hate.

AceReader Pro Deluxe Plus is Speed Reading, Reading Fluency, Vision Training, Reading Assessment and Online Reader Software for all ages. AceReader Pro provides you with three tools in one: (1) A training tool that will help you become a more proficient reader both online and offline. (2) An assessment tool to assess and track your reading level. (3) An online reading tool to help you read more efficiently while online. There are three ways to use the program: (1) Course Mode, (2) Menu Mode, and (3) Expert Mode. The Course Mode walks you through a self-adjusting automated course. The Menu Mode gives you more control by allowing you to pick and choose from a menu of training activities. The Expert Mode gives you full control by allowing you to load your own content (i.e. documents, Web pages ...) and letting you set the display mode and speed. The Expert Mode can be used for training purposes and/or as an Online Reader to help you read more efficiently while you are on your computer.

The program uses Tachistoscope technology to pace eye movement, which can help you break bad reading habits such as sub-vocalization and regression. Training activities include: Timed Reading Comprehension Tests, Eye Pacing Drills and fun Eye Exercise Games. Includes 13 levels of reading material (grades 1-12 plus adult-level). Drills automatically adjust training speed relative to your personal reading ability. The program logs and graphs results for accountability.

The software includes extensive administration and customization options. You can set font, colors, display modes, speeds, delays, bookmarks, column width, hotkeys... Deluxe versions allow you to customize the Tests, Drills and Games.

VERSION INFORMATION: Four versions of this product are available: (1) AceReader Pro (single user home edition), (2) AceReader Pro Deluxe (multi-user/family edition), (3) AceReader Pro Deluxe Plus (single station school edition), and (4) AceReader Pro Deluxe Network (network school edition).
