TextSoap 9.1 manipulates text, runs native on M1

TextSoap started out as a text “cleaning” app many, many moons ago. The tings you can do with it are still called “cleaning”, but perhaps we should really call this app a text manipulation app. Calling version 9.x a text cleaner is like calling iZotope’s RX9 Advanced an audio repair utility. Both have gone way beyond the functionality of their initial release.… Read More TextSoap 9.1 manipulates text, runs native on M1
