    FAQ:


    Can I have a review copy?

    You may request a trial copy of the software via http://www.justoutsourcing.com/files/fd. "Review copies" are not available.


    Why can't I access your website?

    First Draft is currently only available in the United States.


    I already tried First Draft. May I try it again?

    Sorry, First Draft is a one-time trial experience only.


    I am not a writer, but would like to try First Draft only. Can I?

    First Draft is available to writers only. It is not designed for SEO agencies or related distribution.


    Do the generated articles pass Copyscape?

    First Draft runs independent of an Internet connection and does not steal, copy, and/or rewrite content from other websites. Concerns about "passing CopyScape" are therefore not applicable.


    To receive a trial copy, I need a professional email address, but I don't have one. How can I get a trial copy?

    Trial copies are available to people with a professional email address or college-approved email address only.


    I use Windows 8/8.1. Will First Draft work on my system?

    Probably not. I don't know what Microsoft did with those OSes, but they're screwing up the way my software works and are therefore not supported.

    Approved!

    For starters I've know this seller for 3 + years from doing business with her back in the day.

    From day 1 I was super impressed in how she treats her clients and quite impressed with her software.

    This is the latest version of her software and it has more bells and whistles than a fully tricked out 2019 CVO Road Glide.

    It does a fabulous job generating nice content with a whole bunch of options as to how you want that content to read.

    The price point is more than fair and you will not get better customer service from a nicer human being anywhere on the planet.

    I see that there is a web/mobile version. What are the key differences aside from pricing and article limits with the web model compared to the downloaded software?

    Why only available in the USA?
    Online reviews say it's good but pricey for what it is and upgrades are expensive. When you release outside of the USA I might be interested after seeing a sample

    Hi @Nerva. There's a sample at https://www.justoutsourcing.com/files/fd/first-draft-sample.html; however, the best way to see what First Draft produces is to try it. Trying is free. :)

    If you're in the US, and you still can't access the site, please let me know, @MisterF, so that I can fix the problem.

    Here's a handy comparison table, @houdinii321: https://www.justoutsourcing.com/table.php. In addition, the web version is for First Draft customers only, as it's an emergency content generator for times when a deadline is coming up and you don't have access to your computer, for example. Thanks for asking. :)

    Hi @blogzandstuff, First Draft isn't available outside of the US because the artificial intelligence inside of it has become extremely cultural-specific over the years, and I'm afraid that its content would be meaningless to those who aren't already familiar with that culture. If I find a work-around for that particular problem, I'll be sure to let everyone know.

    Hi @Meddie, I'm afraid First Draft is not a good fit for writers who aren't already proficient with the English language. Plain and simple, mistakes do occur, and though I'm pretty damn quick at resolving them, I'm not confident that an English Language Learner would recognize a mistake in the software's output and know how to correct it -- Not without working alongside an English expert.

    Also, there's nothing to "run" through First Draft. First Draft generates content from scratch. Writers simply add to or edit what's presented.

    Why would this not work in Canada?

    Hi @adam11soccer. First Draft doesn't contain any Canada-specific material that the artificial intelligence could relate to, so while using it, there's a significant chance that a Canadian writer would view its material as irrelevant or "off." As a small example, First Draft crafts material based on a specific date (like a holiday) as well as the time, but that material wouldn't correspond with what's happening in your neck of the woods. There's that and issues with spelling, expressions, and even grammatical preferences.

    Those grammatical preferences are a big issue, in fact. I noticed that writers in the UK absolutely detest "long" sentences, whereas in the US, they're not that big of a deal. So it's really just a matter of cultural differences.

    Both of those incidents occur when a person is banned from the website.

    If I am banned then why I am able to see all your other pages?

    Also, I did get an automated reply with the subject: "Download Request Received" and a bunch of sentences.

    Sorry. Looks like I completely misread your original question!

    So I have some rules when it comes to accessing First Draft. One rule is accessing it from a legitimate ISP address. That means no proxy or vpn or host connections are allowed. If you somehow manage to get through using one of those connections, that doesn't mean the rest of the process will follow. I noticed that you connected through a host connection, so that's probably why you were able to access some pages and not others.

    That's not a big deal, as it can be easily fixed by connecting to the site through your bona fide ISP.

    Another rule regards the download request. The college email address you provided is not approved. I have a contract with certain schools to use First Draft as an educational tool, and the one you used is not one of them. The request form asks people to use a "Business or college-approved e-mail only."

    That too, is not a big deal. Simply make another request using your business (website) email address.

    For all others, I strongly recommend that after submitting a request and receiving an automated response with "a bunch of sentences," you pay attention to them. Those sentences explain the success you'll have in accessing the software.

    The email system to try out the web version is not working properly. I used both chrome and explorer.

    Great insignt, truly. It's still a bummer but it tells us how much cultural differences can play a part in communication even when the language is technically common.

    Hi @RAYRAY7. I'll PM you with a workaround for the email system. Nevertheless, the web version is for First Draft customers only, as it's an emergency content generator for times when a deadline is coming up and you don't have access to your computer, for example. So let's try to get a demo ready for you first.

    Yup. That'll do it. (Free email addresses won't work at all.)
