About Our New WYNN 5.0™ Software
"WYNN 5.0 is multi-sensory
technology that customizes content for specific learning styles
and challenges,” said Elaine Huot, M.Ed.,
Success Stream Learning, Educational Consultant and Language Specialist.
“Using WYNN 5.0, students can now broaden their resource
base to better use material from the Web. Using the WebMasking
tool and other study supports, my students access a broad range
of material that is presented to them in a way they can focus
and comprehend. Text is highlighted and can be read to them at
their own pace, allowing students the time they need to process
the content. Struggling students are no longer limited
to using only their text books."
WYNN 5.0 brings unprecedented advancements in the delivery
of a Web-based content to individuals who struggle to read.
This first-of-its-kind product helps special education
students read Internet content using interactive tools
proven to enhance successful learning in a Web-based environment.
WYNN 5.0 doesn't merely superimpose "floating" tool
bars; it fully integrates all the support of our award
winning tools into the Internet, creating a clean and uncluttered
page which enables a student to more successfully
manipulate reading materials.
