Accordance 7.0 released
OakTree Software today announced the availability of Accordance 7.0, a major upgrade to its industry-leading Bible Study Software. Developed exclusively for Macs, version 7 extends that lead with a unique combination of power and ease of use, according to the company. New features include the ability to search for punctuation, innovative new ways to graph the results of a search, automatic highlighting of text differences, a Slide Show view for presenting information to a classroom or congregation, improved highlighting capabilities, and new features for managing and accessing a growing library of Accordance-compatible Bible texts, study aids, and original language texts. It also includes added support for Services and multi-user environments. Pricing is $40 for a starter kit, while upgrades are $30.
"We're very excited about this latest release," said David Lang, Vice President of Development. "A large percentage of our users are scholars, pastors, teachers, and rabbis who are using Accordance in their lesson and sermon preparation. The new Slide Show and auto-scrolling features now make it easy for them to present their materials right from within Accordance, saving them both time and effort. And of course, the innovative new graphs and highlighting capabilities provide them with some exciting new visuals to present."
