WYNN Tip: Customizing
the Visual and Auditory Presentation of Text
Customization of auditory and visual preferences provides a successful platform for differentiated learning. WYNN’s interface provides an extremely easy way to modify these preferences.
Users can adjust visual settings to address visual processing difficulties, such as scotopic sensitivity, visual tracking, or simply to customize text for individual visual preferences. You can adjust:
- Line Spacing
- Word Spacing
- Background Color
To adjust settings for any of these items to each user's preferences and needs, click the corresponding button to rotate through the options.
You can also set Masking levels. To turn on Masking, you must be in Read-only mode (using the Read-only/Write button toggle). Then you can click the Mask button to rotate through the Masking options. Once Masking is set, you may return to “Write” mode at any time. You will see the text masked while you are reading, but once you stop reading, you will no longer see the Masking of the text unless you go back to Read-only mode.
You can adjust auditory settings to address auditory processing difficulties or for individual listening preferences. You can adjust:
- Self-paced Reading
- Speech Rate
- Pause Between Sentences
To adjust the speech settings for Self-paced reading, Speech Rate, and the amount of Pause between sentences, click the corresponding button to rotate through the options.
To switch reading voices, go to the Speech Settings menu. You can change voices using the Voice field. You can switch languages using the Language field.
If you want to change synthesizers and use another installed synthesizer, such as Eloquence, go to the Settings menu and select Retrieve Settings. Choose the synthesizer you wish to use. In WYNN 5.1, RealSpeak Solo is in the SAPI 5 settings file. Eloquence is in the SAPI 4 settings file.
