WYNN's user interface has been carefully designed to provide power, flexibility, and a short learning curve. Our color-coded toolbars have intuitive, large buttons along with background colors that can be turned on or off to suit your visual preferences.
WYNN's Web browsing module supports the latest innovations in Web technology. Using the integrated toolbar and tools, students can easily conduct online research and access a multitude of cutting-edge Web sites. WYNN is also the first literacy program to provide highlighting functions for the Web.
WYNN's new Web browsing module includes the ability to highlight text on a
Web page and then to extract the highlighted text and the ability
to have WYNN read online e-mail. WYNN also boasts one-click PDF
file conversion, so you can spend your valuable time on the results,
not the process. WYNN’s patented WebMasking feature has been
enhanced to give students more options while reading Web pages.
The Web module also includes a built-in pop-up blocker to allow
students to focus with fewer distractions.
In addition to the Web toolbar, our toolbars focus on aiding users
by providing a clean and uncluttered appearance and:
- Easy-to-use rotating toolbars that provide all functions.
- Intuitive buttons and icons that allow a short learning curve.
- Simultaneous auditory and visual presentation to support all
- Clear, natural-sounding speech.
The File Management Toolbar
The blue File
Management toolbar lets you scan a page, open, close, save, and
print files. It also lets you browse the Internet. Use the Text
View button, and its partner, the Exact View button, to switch between
two different views of the page. Like the other three tool bars,
this one includes the Next, Read, Write, Exact View, and Other Document
buttons. Our new "Clean-up" button facilitates correction
of errors that may occur in the document during scanning. This ensures
that the document will be spoken correctly by WYNN, whether reading
it in Exact View or Text View.
The Reading Styles Toolbar
The green Reading
Styles toolbar controls how WYNN presents the document, including
the size of the text, spacing, margins, and the type of font used –
all to make the page more readable and customized for the user. Plus,
there's the popular Mask button, which "masks out" everything
on the page except the section you wish to read.
The Study Tools Toolbar
The pink Study Tools toolbar gives you access to a talking dictionary
and a thesaurus; lets you add a bookmark, text, or voice note to
the document; and allows you to highlight selected text using brightly
colored "markers." You can spell a word aloud or break
it into syllables. With the List feature, instantaneously move highlighted
or bookmarked text into a separate document to create vocabulary
lists, study guides, and more. The Notecards button lets you take and organize your notes in electronic notecards.
The Writing Tools Toolbar
The yellow Writing Tools toolbar helps create or edit a document.
Our buttons let you cut, copy or paste text, run a spell check,
or ask WYNN to find a specific word in the document. The word prediction
feature helps struggling writers and spellers. Students can also
create and manage outlines. Students can use the Homophone button
to verify the correct word usage in their document. It is important
to learn to spell these words as there are no spelling rules to
help you remember them. The word's definition, along with the definitions
of other like-sounding words, are available for selection and reading
