WYNN v3.0
by Freedom Sceintific
WYNN is innovative software designed to aid individuals to read and write more effectively. WYNN was developed with the help of special educators and individuals with learning difficulties. They aided in defining the features that most support reading and studying.
WYNN is available in two versions:
     WYNN Wizard provides optical character recognition (OCR), the ability to scan a printed page and convert it into electronic text. Speech synthesis enables this scanned text to be read aloud. A special correction feature provides automatic correction of misrecognized word. WYNN Wizard permits two views of material: Exact View shows material exactly as scanned; Text View displays the text only to enable visual tailoring for individual use. The two views are linked and users may switch back and forth from one view to the other. WYNN Wizard can scan and read word processing, text files, and the Internet.
     WYNN Reader includes all of the features available in WYNN Wizard except the OCR capability. In addition to customized visual tailoring, individuals may enjoy clear, natural-sounding synthetic speech while reading standard word processing files, the Internet, ASCII text files, and scanned pages saved to disk.
