WYNN is a downloadable program that supports kids who have reading and comprehension difficulties. It has two versions: Wizard, with more features, and Reader, a slightly pared-down program. Kids will use five rotating toolbars (Web, File Management, Reading Styles, Study Tools, Writing Tools) to read and/or hear any text, change the visual presentation or reading options, and study. Text can be downloaded from the Web in digital form or scanned with the WYNN Wizard version.
Other features include overlays that can can be used to eliminate light sensitivity and masking to dim out extraneous material. Reference tools include the ability to find appropriate words through word prediction, understanding homophones, and spell-checking. Letter size, spacing, and margins all can be controlled, and the dictionary and phonetic spelling support English language learners.
Text also can be modified to support individual needs: You can tweak things such as spacing and color scheme to help make reading easier. WYNN also offers a bimodal approach, letting you hear and see text at the same time.
