Before downloading ClipRead, you must agree to the terms of the
ClipRead Data Confidentiality and User Agreement. If you haven't already,

If you have accepted the terms of the agreement, download ClipRead by
clicking on the link below.
When prompted, we suggest you save Clipread.exe to a file named
"ClipRead" that you can readily access.
To get started:
- Open the file with the ClipRead application.
- Click on the ClipRead icon (the feather quill in the ink well).
- When prompted, enter your user name and password. We recommend
that you change your password to one you will easily remember. If you
forget your password, please send an e-mail to
we will re-send your password information.
- Once your ClipRead application is running, you are now ready to submit
text for parsing (you may wish to minimize the ClipRead window, though
this is not necessary).
How to submit text:
- (Recommended): As you are reading an electronic document, use the
cursor to select and copy the text that you want transformed. You could
also click on the "Edit" menu, choose "Select all", then "Copy" (which will
submit all the text in the document.) Now simply open the ClipRead
application by clicking on the icon in your toolbar, and the parsed text will
appear. If you submit more than ten pages of text, the application will warn
you that you have submitted a large amount of text which may require an
extended time for parsing.
- The second way to submit text is with plain ASCII documents (*.txt
documents). On the ClipRead application, go to the file menu, click on
open text file, and select the plain text document that you want
transformed. The parsed text will appear automatically in your ClipRead
Text submitted to the ClipRead service is computer-analyzed for syntactic
structure and returned directly to the submitter with inserted mark-up tags
for enhanced presentation and reading. The submitted text is not copied,
nor is it otherwise available for direct review by any person other than the
submitter. Text content submitted for this service is considered
confidential, and the submitter is considered solely responsible for the
content that he/she submits for this service.
