Every reference in SM can be right-clicked and sent either to Google for more information or to One-Look Dictionaries for definitions. Every reference in SM! 


You've looked up a drug name, and now you want to know what that drug is for? Right-click that drug name in SearchMaster, send it Google, and you'll know what that drug is used for!


You've looked up an attorney or a doctor's name, and you want more information than just the spelling -- like an address, a firm affiliation, or a phone number? Right-click the name and send it straight to Google for that info!


You've looked up a word like "anthropomorphize," and now you want to know what that word means? Right-click it, send it to the One-Look Dicrtionaries. One-Look will search over a thousand dictionaries at the same time for the definition. It's like having an entire library of dictionaries built right into SearchMaster!

"Jim Barker's Court Reporters Forum"
Facebook Group Page


Why are nearly a thousand reporters, scopists, and proofreaders visiting my Facebook group page on a regular basis? Because they're tired of getting bad advice on how to punctuate the English language; because they want valid answers, not off-the-wall, ill-informed, subjective, "good enough" opinions; and because they like being able to post a sentence or a paragraph from a transcript and receive punctuation guidance from top-notch reporting wordsmiths (including yours truly and Margie Wakeman Wells, author of Court Reporting: Bad Grammar/Good Punctuation). Between us, Margie and I have been teaching punctuation for approximately 80 years. Got a semicolon conundrum? Not sure whether to cap or not to cap? Should an apostrophe be appended to the word "years" in "years' experience"? We've got the answers you're seeking; so isn't it time for you to click HERE and join us?
 Keep 'em Coming!


Your contributions to SM's glossaries are very much appreciated, friends; so if you had to go to some other source to find what you didn't find in SearchMaster, please send me that reference so I can add it to the next update! The easiest way to do that is to click the little white tech support envelope in the extreme lower right corner of SearchMaster's main screen.

Until next time, I leave you with this thought from Mark Twain:
"In the first place, God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made school boards." 

Want to tell your friends about SearchMaster, but you just don't have the time? Send 'em to and have 'em click "About" and then click "Video Previews"! After all, seeing is believing!
