Freedom Scientific LSG Presents
The WYNNing Word WYNNing Word
September, 2005
Back to School Issue



We hope you've had a great summer and are looking forward to the start of school as much as we are. We've had a busy summer and want to share with you all the things we've been working on for you.




INTRODUCING WYNN 4

WYNN 4 has arrived! The dynamic literacy tool has a number of new options and enhancements to ensure reading success. The new features are the result of months of research and user input. This month we're going to highlight some of the new features and how you'll be able to use them.
 

Toolbar additions
To further enhance learning and comprehension, WYNN 4 now allows users to add, change and view Text Notes and Voice Notes in the Exact View and Text View of a document. These new features provide even more methods to increase individual engagement in the learning process. In addition, Exact View has been improved to provide a brighter and crisper view of the page.


Homophones

Another great new feature is homophones, you know, those words that sound the same but have different meaning and spellings. They can cause problems for even the best readers and writers. WYNN 4 is able to verify correct usage in the document. The homophones work within the custom definitions available from Wordsmyth, the leading electronic and print reference company.

AT&T Natural VoicesTM
In response to user requests, WYNN 4 now includes AT&T Natural Voices TM for high quality and more human-sounding voices. English and Spanish languages are standard and other languages are available. Users still have the option of using ViaVoice Outloud™, IBM's precise-sounding speech synthesizer.

Convert Your Documents
WYNN users can now save and convert any document into MP3 or WAV files. This allows the user to listen to a file later at their convenience using any MP3 compatible device, including portable devices like iPods™.

Freedom Scientific LSG In the News
We think WYNN and TestTalker are great products but there's nothing like hearing it from some of the most respected publications in the education industry. The May issue of Technology & Learning featured a review of TestTalker. You can read it at http://www.freedomscientific.com/LSG/about/tnl5903-final.pdf. The summer issue of the highly respected Children's Technology Review also reviewed both WYNN and TestTalker.
