  • user-editable data file - make your own test lists, instructions supplied;
  • option to load alternative data files when the program starts;
  • option to keep score and flag verbs for retest;

Additional Options

Watch the Demo Movie!

No demo software is available (after all, the cost of real thing is minimal) but here is a movie (5.7 MB) showing most features.

Movie notes: the movie has no sound and is reduced in size and quality for web use. ReVerb can be resized to any size in actual use with no loss of sharpness. Just one other thing: the mouse pointer is used in the movie to indicate which controls are being used, but most of the actual controlling was done with the keyboard alternatives!
