Introduction
What is WYNN?
WYNN® (What You Need Now) is a software program for people
who struggle with reading and writing. The features in WYNN
allow you to:
 Acquire documents, such as textbook passages, memos, or
magazine articles, into WYNN and save them
 Open a document or Web page and have WYNN read it
aloud to you
 Easily change the way the text looks to make it easier to
read
 Use writing tools to make writing assignments easier
 Use study tools to help you learn
WYNN uses a series of color-coded toolbars to help you quickly
access reading and writing assignments. You can do almost
everything using the buttons on the toolbars that appear across
the top of the screen. For more information, see Getting to Know
WYNN (page 65).
1
Introduction
WYNN Wizard and WYNN Reader
Two versions of WYNN software are available: WYNN Wizard and
WYNN Reader.
WYNN Wizard is a full-featured application that includes:
 Optical character recognition (OCR), which allows you to
acquire and read pages, as well as read existing word
processing and text files
 Document composition and editing tools like word prediction,
spell checking, and homophone recognition
 The ability to browse the World Wide Web to assist with
topic research
 Traditional study aids like highlighting, bookmarking,
outlining, and dictionary and thesaurus usage
 Visual and auditory adjustments to make it easier to read
and comprehend documents
 Single-user or network licensing available
WYNN Reader includes the same features and functionality that
are in WYNN Wizard, except for scanning and OCR capabilities.
Use WYNN Reader to read electronic documents, create or edit
documents, and browse the Internet for document research.
Single-User and Network Versions
Both WYNN Wizard and WYNN Reader are available as singleuser or network licensed products. The single-user version easily
installs onto a single computer, while the network version allows
as many clients as possible, based on the number of licenses
purchased, to use the software at once over a local area network
(LAN).
2
Introduction
What's New in WYNN
WYNN has many exciting new features for our users.
PEARL Camera Support
Lightning-fast OCR with the portable PEARL® camera. PEARL is a
portable camera that can be connected to your USB port and used
any time you need to capture pages on the go. PEARL weighs just
two pounds, and it provides fast and accurate page recognition.
Once you connect the PEARL camera, go to the Advanced menu
and change your Device Selection from your flatbed scanner to
PEARL, then acquire as usual. See PEARL Camera Commands
(page 205) for more information.
Book Search
Search for Bookshare.org, Gutenberg, and Baen books from
within WYNN. You can search by title or author. If searching for
books in Bookshare, you can use either your individual or
organizational membership to download available books. Book
Search is available from the Launch menu, or by using the
keyboard shortcut CTRL+K.
MathML
Support for math and science formulas written using MathML, the
math mark-up language adopted as part of the NIMAS standard.
Just open any MathML document in WYNN’s Web browser, and
you can read the formulas written in MathML by right-clicking
them.
3
Introduction
Skim Reading
Save time while studying by quickly checking out what’s in a
document before reading it thoroughly. Skim reading will read just
the first sentence of each paragraph, so you can get a quick idea
of what’s in the document. Skim Reading is available in the Tools
menu, or by using the keyboard shortcut SHIFT+F2 (see page 46).
Split View
See Exact View and Text View simultaneously. This provides easy
comparison of the original document and the resulting Text View,
which allows visual tailoring to assist with visual processing
difficulties. Just toggle the View button on the toolbar until you get
to the Split View. When finished with Split View, toggle the View
button back to either Text or Exact View.
Two-tone Exact View
Use the same custom colors for Exact View as you do in Text
View. If you prefer using a light blue background, this new feature
will set your Exact View background to light blue, too. Two-tone
Exact View is found on the View menu, or by using the keyboard
shortcut CTRL+2 (see page 49).
Crisp Exact View
Technical advances have made WYNN’s Exact View even more
crisp and clean, providing an even better user experience.
What’s in this Box?
The following items are in your WYNN package. If you discover
damaged or missing items, please contact your retailer.

WYNN Network Installation
Network Installation Overview
Note: This chapter is intended for network administrators. It
assumes that you are familiar with computer networks,
user groups, user accounts, and user permissions. You
must have Administrator or Power User access on all
machines where the server, license server, and client
components are installed. For license server and network
details, see pages 229 and 234.
Note: The WYNN Network program and the WYNN Stand-alone
program are on the same DVD.
Note: The WYNN software package downloaded from the
Freedom Scientific Web site can be used to install a demo
version of WYNN network or WYNN stand-alone. If you
install using the downloaded software package, some of
the installation instructions will be slightly different from the
information in this chapter.
Note: You must uninstall any previous version of WYNN before
installing the latest WYNN release.
Note: For a list of hardware and software requirements, see
System Requirements on page 199.
WYNN Network Installation consists of four major parts.
 Installing the WYNN network server software (page 17).
 Sharing folders and setting NTFS permission for the
WYNNNet and Users folders (page 19).
 Activating WYNN Network Server (page 26). This allows you
to designate a computer running Windows on the network as
the ILM license server. This computer issues tokens to the
16
Network WYNN Installation
WYNN clients. The number of license seats purchased
determines the number of tokens available to client
computers on the network.
 Installing WYNN Network Client (page 31).
Tip:
Make sure your user permissions are set up correctly or
users may have problems saving their profiles, settings,
and documents.
Installing the WYNN Network Server
Note: When upgrading from an older WYNN Network version,
disable the old Users share by right-clicking on the folder,
selecting Properties, navigating to the Share tab, and
selecting Do not share this folder.
Network installation requires that you install all server components
from the WYNN DVD to the server. During this process, all client
installation files are copied to the server and several WYNN
folders are created.
1.
Do one of the following:
 If installing from the WYNN DVD, insert the DVD into
the server’s disk drive. (Both the network and standalone versions of WYNN are on the same DVD.)
 If installing from the downloaded software package,
locate and double-click the executable file. The file has
a name similar to WYNN[version number]-32bit64bit.exe.
Important:
WYNN’s server components installation program is located
in the disk’s root folder. Installation must run from this
location. Do not copy and run the installation components
from a different medium.
17
Network WYNN Installation
2.
The WYNN Setup program starts, and displays
installation instructions. Follow these instructions to
complete the WYNN installation.
Note: If the program does not start automatically run Setup.exe
on the program disk.
3.
When prompted,
 Choose Network WYNN installation
 Choose a destination folder for Network WYNN. The
default folder is C:\WYNNNet. If you want to install it in
a different folder, choose Browse and select a new
folder. Choose Next to continue with the installation.
 Choose a location for users to share their documents
and settings. The default document storage folder is
C:\WYNNNet\Users. This location must be shared so
that all users can access it. Make sure the storage
location is shared and then select Next to continue.
Note: The installation wizard can automatically share this folder.
It will have Full Control permission for the Everyone group
during installation and then will be demoted to Read Only
permission for the Everyone group once installation is
finished. Choose Yes to create this share or No to
continue.
4.
When installation is complete, you can then set
permissions for the folders referenced in the next section.
Once that is complete, you can install WYNN Network
Client on the workstations.
Refer to page 31 for WYNN client installation procedures.
During installation, several new folders and subfolders
are created on the server (see page 236).
18
Network WYNN Installation
Configuring User Groups and Folder
Permissions
Users must be able to access certain folders to use Network
WYNN. You can create one user group and set the access for that
group, or you can create many users and then set the folder
access for each user.
Creating a User Group
Create a WYNN user group to easily add students who will use the
WYNN application. You can allow individual users to access the
WYNN folders, but you will have to set folder permissions for each
user. If you create a group, you only set folder permissions once
for the group.
1.
Navigate to the Control Panel.
2.
Select Administrative Tools.
3.
Select Computer Management. The dialog box will vary
based on your operating system as shown in the following
images.

License Server Installation and Configuration
Overview
A WYNN Network Authorization CD is supplied with the Network
WYNN version. The following overview describes the three
primary steps to installing and configuring a license server
computer.
Note: If you do not install and activate the license server, the
WYNN clients will operate in 40-minute demo mode. The
WYNN software package downloaded from the Freedom
Scientific Web site does not include the license server
software.
24
Network WYNN Installation
 Select a license server computer
You must designate one Microsoft Windows-based computer
on the network to be the license server. This can even be
the WYNN server. Install the license server on a networked
computer that is not running the WYNN client. Make sure
that this computer is always accessible.
The license server handles requests for tokens. A token
allows a WYNN client to use WYNN. The license server
issues tokens to the requesting clients until there are no
more tokens available. The number of available tokens
depends on how many license seats were purchased. For
example, if 10 seats are purchased, only 10 simultaneous
WYNN sessions are available. If an eleventh computer tries
to use the WYNN application, it is denied access to the
application until a license seat becomes available.
 Install the license server software
The WYNN Network Authorization CD contains the network
authorization utilities, documentation, and tools. Insert the
CD into the computer’s disk drive, and follow the on-screen
instructions to install the software.
 Activate the license server computer
This is the only computer that requires software activation.
The other WYNN client computers do not require
authorization or activation since they obtain tokens from the
license server. For activation procedures, refer to Activating
the License Server on page 27.
25
Network WYNN Installation
Installing the License Server Software and
Network Authorization Tools
The following process describes how to install the license server,
which authorizes client computers to use your Freedom Scientific
product. This installation also creates a program folder in your
Start menu that provides access to the Network Authorization
documentation and tools.
1.
To begin the installation, insert the WYNN Network
Authorization CD into your computer’s disk drive. The
Network Authorization Utilities dialog box appears.
Choose Install to continue.
Note: If the installation does not begin automatically, run
Setup.exe on the program disk.
2.
The Network Authorization Utilities installation status
appears. The installation briefly pauses, and then
launches the InstallShield Wizard for the SentinelLM
Server.
3.
The InstallShield Wizard for SentinelLM Server starts.
Choose Next to begin the license server installation.
Note: You can only install the license server on a computer that
runs Windows XP or later. The license server does not
support other operating systems such as Novell, UNIX,
Linux, and so on.
4.
Read the license agreement. If you accept the terms and
conditions in the agreement, choose Yes.
By default, the license server installs in C:\Program
Files\Rainbow Technologies\SentinelLM 7.2.0.6 Server. If
you want to install the license server in a different folder,
choose Browse and select a new folder. Choose Next to
continue with the installation.
26
Network WYNN Installation
5.
Choose Finish when installation of the SentinelLM Server
is complete. The Network Authorization installation status
menu appears again.
6.
Choose Finish when this installation of the Network
Authorization Utilities is complete.
The Network Authorization tools and license server are now
installed. If you are using Windows XP, the “SentinelLM” service is
automatically added to your Windows Services.
The installation creates a new folder in your Start menu called
Freedom Scientific. View the Quick Reference section on page
234 for detailed descriptions of each Network Authorization tool.
Activating the License Server
After installing the license server and Network Authorization tools,
you must then activate your Freedom Scientific product license. To
do this, you must request an Activation License code from
Freedom Scientific. You can use the Internet to receive your
Activation License code quickly and easily.
Note: When upgrading from an older WYNN Network release,
you must also update your authorization using the steps
below.
Perform the following to activate your Freedom Scientific product.
1.
From the Start menu, choose All Programs, Freedom
Scientific, Network, and Update WYNN Wizard
Authorization or WYNN Reader Authorization.
2.
Choose the Activate button to begin the activation.
3.
Select the Now, using the Internet (RECOMMENDED)
option to specify that you want to use the Internet to
acquire your Activation License code. Choose Next to
continue.

28
Your 20-character Authorization number is automatically
inserted into the Authorization Number edit box. If your
Authorization number is not shown, type it into the edit
box. (Your 20-character Authorization number appears on
your WYNN disk package.) Choose Next to continue.
Network WYNN Installation
5.
You may be prompted to register your software.
Registering lets you receive technical support. Choose
Register Now and complete the online registration form
by following the instructions provided. You can choose to
register later, but you must register the next time you
activate the software on any computer.
6.
After you submit your registration, Internet License
Manager (ILM) attempts to activate the software. This
process may take several minutes. When the activation is
successful, choose Finish.
Tip:
If Internet License Manager cannot activate the software,
you may need to reconfigure your firewall. See page 229
for more information.
7.
Start the WLMAdmin utility by opening the Start menu
and choosing Programs or All Programs, Freedom
Scientific, Network, and Server Administration. If the
WLMAdmin utility is running, quit the program and then
restart it. You can use this utility to monitor where the
license(s) reside and which users are using tokens.
WYNN Network Client Overview
The final part of network installation requires that you install the
WYNN application onto the client computers by running the
appropriate Setup.exe file that resides on the server. Do not run
the client setup from the program disk.
Note: If installing from the downloaded software package, locate
and double-click the executable file. The file has a name
similar to WYNN[version number]-32bit-64bit.exe.
You do not need to perform additional authorization procedures for
these computers. Each time the software is started on the client, it
automatically searches for the license server and obtains an
authorization token.
29
Network WYNN Installation
The number of tokens available depends on the number of users
permitted by your license. For example, if you purchase a license
for five users, your license server has five tokens available. Each
time a user starts the software, the license server assigns the
client computer a token. Once all tokens are assigned, no
additional clients can receive authorization.
If you need your license to support additional users, contact your
local distributor or Freedom Scientific to purchase additional seats.
To run the Setup.exe file from the server follow the procedures in
the Installing the WYNN Network Client section.
Adding the Environment Variable
LSFORCEHOST
Tip:
It is recommended that you add the environment variable
LSFORCEHOST to the client computers and set it to the
name or IP address of the SentinelLM license server.
When the Freedom Scientific program starts, it will only
search for a product license on the specified computer. If
you have distributed the license over more than one
license server and you want the program to search for the
first available token, do not add this environment variable.
For more information, refer to the System Administrator’s
Guide, which is a Network Authorization tool that you
installed earlier.
Do the following to add the environment variable:
For Windows 7, do the following:

Workflow Overview and Settings
What are Workflows?
A workflow is a group of pre-defined settings that control how
images are acquired and processed. Workflows can acquire single
or multiple pages, acquire simple or complex documents with
tables and other formatting, or acquire pages manually or
automatically. You can also create your own workflow to meet
your needs.
The settings for each workflow are divided into two groups:
Acquire and Process. Acquisition settings control how the
workflow acquires images and where the page is placed in the
document. Process settings control how text is recognized and
where the reading cursor is positioned. Refer to the sections below
for details.
Note: To create, modify, or restore workflow settings, see the
section beginning with Creating a Workflow on page 118.
Workflow Settings
Note: Earlier versions of WYNN used Scanning Settings to set
individual aspects of how WYNN scanned documents. The
Workflow Settings replaces and enhances the capabilities
of Scanning Settings.
Choose Workflow Settings from the Settings menu to select a
different workflow, change current workflow settings, or create a
new workflow when acquiring pages and images. Below are
descriptions of the workflow options and settings. To customize
workflow settings, use the options available in the Acquire tab
page (see page 101) and the Process tab page (see page 106).
Workflow changes are persistent across WYNN sessions. You do
not have to save the workflow (using the Save the Settings
command) each time you make a change.
95
Workflow Overview and Settings
Workflow Name
Select a workflow to use when acquiring pages or images using a
scanner, the PEARL camera, the Freedom Import Printer, a PDF
file, or an image file. Below are the standard workflows. All
workflows acquire and process images in color except as noted. If
you want to acquire or process using black and white or grayscale,
you can modify the settings for a workflow. This will probably
speed up the acquisition and processing.
96
Workflow Overview and Settings
 Acquire and Read: This workflow acquires and processes a
single image. The new page is added to the end of the
document and the cursor is moved to the top of the new
page. This workflow is best for quickly reading short
documents, such as letters and recipes, and is the active
workflow when WYNN starts for the first time. You can
change both acquisition and process settings for this
workflow.
 Acquire Image Only: This workflow acquires the image and
saves it as an image file, without performing the recognition
process. This workflow is useful if you want to create and
save an image file to be used later as a graphic. Acquired
images can be saved as JPEG (default), BMP, PCX, PCX
Fax, PNG, TIF Fax, TIF B&W, TIF LZW, TIF RLE, or TIF
Uncompressed files. Since there is no processing involved,
you can only modify Acquisition settings for this workflow.
 Freedom Import Printer: Use this workflow to recognize
and open documents that WYNN cannot open directly. If a
document can be opened in any application that supports
printing, it can be opened in WYNN by printing it to the
Freedom Import Printer. This is a specialty workflow. It
cannot be set as your current workflow. Since there is no
acquisition involved, you can only modify Process settings
for this workflow.
 Multipage Automatic: Use this workflow to automatically
acquire multiple pages and append them to the document.
When using the PEARL camera, the workflow can be
configured to detect motion as you turn the page, and then
acquire the image when movement under the camera stops.
To use motion detection, make sure to set the Page
Acquisition Delay timer to 0. You can change both
acquisition and process settings for this workflow.
97
Workflow Overview and Settings
 Multipage Prompt for Pages: This workflow allows you to
continue reading from your current location and acquire new
pages that are appended to the end of the document. After
each new page is acquired, WYNN displays a dialog box
with the options described below. After selecting an action,
the dialog box closes and you can continue reading where
you left off in the document. You can change both
acquisition and process settings for this workflow.
 Acquire Another Page: Choose this button to have
WYNN acquire the next page and append it to the
document.
 Turn Pages Over: After acquiring one side of each
page in a double-sided document, choose this to
acquire the opposite side of each page and have it
inserted into the document in the correct page order
during recognition. For instance, if you were acquiring
three double-sided pages, WYNN would first acquire
pages 1, 3, and 5, you would next select Turn Pages
Over, and then WYNN would acquire pages 6, 4, and
2 in that order. The pages would then be placed in the
correct order during the OCR (processing) step. In
order for pages to be sorted correctly in the document,
make sure you always acquire the opposite side of the
last page, even if it is blank. This option is not available
if you have already activated it, or if you have enabled
the Split Facing Pages setting for the current workflow.
Note: This feature is most useful with scanners that
have an automatic document feeder.
 Finished Acquiring Images: Choose this button to
stop image acquisition. To start another acquisition,
click the Scan button, or use the Acquire menu
commands.
 Paperback Books: Automatically acquires multiple pages in
grayscale, but with Split Facing Pages turned on.
98
Workflow Overview and Settings
 PDF File: This workflow is used by default when you open a
PDF file from within WYNN. It is a specialty workflow, which
means that you can only modify process settings. It cannot
be set as your current workflow. If WYNN is unable to
process the particular file, you are prompted to use the
Freedom Import Printer instead. If you choose Yes, WYNN
switches to the Freedom Import Printer specialty workflow
and resumes processing. Selecting No cancels the
recognition, and the PDF file is not opened.
 Process Image File: This is a specialty workflow that is
used by default when you open an image file (TIFF, JPEG,
and so on) from within WYNN. Use it to configure how
WYNN processes image files. It cannot be set as your
current workflow.
 Worksheets - Color: Acquires a single page in color and
appends it to the document.
 Worksheets - Black & White: Acquires a single page in
grayscale and appends it to the document.
Set as Current
Choose this button to make the selected workflow the active
workflow. When you start an acquisition, WYNN uses the settings

button is not available if the workflow in the list is a specialty
workflow or is already set as the active workflow.
Modify
Choose this button to open a dialog box where you can change
the Acquire and Process settings for the selected workflow.

Workflow Overview and Settings
Recognition Defaults Group
Use the items in this group to specify the languages that WYNN
uses during the recognition process. (Note that this does not refer
to the languages spoken by WYNN; rather it refers to the
characters that WYNN identifies during the recognition process.)
This is useful if the document you are acquiring has text that
contains accent marks, umlauts, or other characters unique to a
particular language. The recognition languages selected for
Language 1 and Language 2 apply to all workflows. However, you
can always configure different languages for a particular workflow
using the Recognition Group settings (page 110) in the Process
tab page.
Language 1
Use this item to specify the language used to read and decipher
text. Select the language that corresponds to the language of the
printed page you are acquiring. This allows correct recognition of
characters unique to that language.
Language 2
Use this item to specify a second recognition language used to
recognize acquired text. WYNN uses the languages selected for
both Language 1 and Language 2 to recognize text. This is helpful
if the document contains text from more than one language.
Acquire Tab
The settings on the Acquire tab page control how the workflow
acquires images and where the page is placed in the document.
These options are described below.
101
Workflow Overview and Settings
Acquisition Mode
Use this box to specify whether WYNN acquires a single page or
multiple pages.
 Single: WYNN acquires one page from the scanner or
camera, processes it, and begins reading. To acquire
another page, you will need to press the acquire keystroke
again. Single page acquisition mode is the default setting for
all workflows except Paperback Books, Multipage Prompt for
Pages, and Multipage Automatic.
 Multiple: Lets you acquire a batch of pages for later
processing. Some additional options become available when
this mode is selected.
102
Workflow Overview and Settings
Image Properties Group
Color Mode
Select the color mode you want to use when acquiring pages.
Color is the default acquisition setting for all workflows. Some
workflows use black and white or grayscale for processing the
image, but they all use color to acquire the image.
 Color: Acquires and recognizes pages of colored text, art,
and photographs in color. The results of color scanning are
only apparent while you are in Exact View. For this reason
you must have Keep Exact View As (page 107) set to color
in the workflow you want to use for acquiring pages in color.
 Gray Scale: Select this item if it is not necessary to have the
Exact View image in color.
Resolution
Resolution is measured in dots per inch (dpi). The higher the
resolution, the more dots per inch resulting in larger image files.
The Resolution box allows you to select from 200, 300, 400, 500,
or 600 dpi. The resolution is set to 300 dpi for all workflows.
Many scanners have a standard setting of 300 dots per inch (dpi).
However, if you are reading pages printed in very small type and
have a scanner that can resolve as finely as 400 dpi, you may see
improved recognition accuracy. For 400 dpi to be effective, your
scanner must have an optical resolution of at least 400 by 400 dpi.
An optical resolution of 300 by 600 dpi is not adequate.
Note: This setting is ignored if the acquisition source is the
PEARL camera.
103
Workflow Overview and Settings
Acquisition Size Group
Full Device Length
When this check box is selected, WYNN acquires the full length of
the scanner bed, or the entire field of view under the PEARL
camera (9 inches by 12 inches (22.86 cm by 30.48 cm)). If you
clear this option, you can then specify how much of the scanner
bed is scanned or how much of the area under the camera is
captured. This item is selected by default in all factory workflows.
Partial Acquisition
Available only when the Full Device Length check box is cleared,
this slider control allows you to specify how much of the scanner
bed, or how much of the area under the PEARL camera, is
acquired starting from the top. You can set it any where between
10 and 90 percent. Partial Acquisition is a useful way to preview
your acquisition since WYNN acquires just enough of the page for
you to get an idea of the content.
Adjust Image Group
If you are using a scanner to acquire images, these options control
the light-to-dark contrast ratio in the acquired document.
Note: This item is equivalent to the Scanning Contrast setting in
earlier versions of WYNN.
Automatic Contrast / Contrast Slider
Select this check box to have WYNN automatically adjust the
contrast accordingly depending on the type of page being
acquired. If this option is unchecked, you can then use the
contrast slider to manually adjust the contrast from darkest to
lightest. You should only manually change the contrast if a
particular page is not being recognized correctly on automatic
contrast.

Workflow Overview and Settings
 Prompt for Pages: After each image acquisition, a message
displays that allows you to acquire another page, turn the
page over to acquire odd and even pages, or finish image
acquisition.
 Automatically Acquire Pages: Select to acquire new pages
after a certain period of time, automatically through a
document feeder attached to a scanner, or as soon as
PEARL detects the page has been turned and there is no
movement under the camera. When using automatic
acquisition, use the Page Acquisition Delay box to set a
time delay from 0 to 25 seconds. This delay is from the time
the image is acquired until the next acquisition begins.
 Duplex Mode: If your scanner has a duplexer, select this
check box to use this feature.

108
Workflow Overview and Settings
Preserve Line Breaks
Select this check box to keep line breaks during recognition. Use
this option if you are acquiring a document where retaining the line
breaks where they actually appear in the original text can improve
the flow when reading. This item is cleared by default.
Page Layout Group
Recognize Columns / Ignore Columns
 Recognize Columns: When selected, the OCR process
analyzes the text and automatically detects columns if they
are present. Each column is handled in order, from top to
bottom, left to right, before handling the next column. This
setting does not preserve the columnized layout in WYNN,
but it does ensure that correct reading order is observed for
columnized text. This is the default setting for all workflows.
 Ignore Columns: When selected, it causes the OCR
process to disregard column boundaries that may exist. This
means that each line of text is recognized from left to right,
all the way across the page, potentially spanning multiple
columns. This method does preserve columnized layout, but
creates incorrect reading order for the reader.
Split Facing Pages
Select this check box to scan two side-by-side pages of a
paperback book in a single scan. Each page is stored separately,
with separate page numbers. This helps maintain the original page
numbering. Clear this check box when scanning individual pages.
Table Processing Group

into WYNN, even if instructed to do so in your scanner’s
manual.
If your scanner has a Scan button, never use it when
scanning with WYNN.
You can also press F3 to start acquiring pages and ESC
again to stop.
Note: Some scanners use the back of the scanner glass for page
placement for the top of the page. Others use the front of
the scanner glass. Each scanner has an arrow or some
other mark to show you where the top of the page should
be; make sure you are familiar with your scanner’s
orientation.
Note: In WYNN 5.10 or earlier, you would scan documents using
the Scan menu and the Scanning Settings dialog box. In
WYNN 6.0 or later, scanning is now referred to as
acquiring since you can now use a scanner or PEARL
camera to acquire documents or images. The Scan menu
is now called the Acquire menu, and the Scanner
Settings dialog box is now the Workflow Settings dialog
box.

Teacher Exercise Guide
Acquiring Multiple Pages
There are three parts to the acquisition process: (1) acquiring the
page image, (2) processing the image, and (3) recognizing the
image or converting it to electronic text. WYNN normally acquires
a page, then immediately processes and recognizes it before
moving on to the next page. When acquiring a document with
multiple pages, the Multipage workflows allow you to separate
these processes; all the scanning is done at one time, followed by
the processing and recognition of the pages, which can be done at
a later time if needed. The WYNN program can acquire multiple
pages using the following workflows:
 Multipage Automatic
 Multipage – Prompt for Pages, see page 115
 Paperback Books, see page 116
Multipage Automatic Workflow
Use this workflow to automatically acquire multiple pages and
append them to the document. When using the PEARL camera,
the workflow can be configured to detect motion as you turn the
page, and then acquire the image when movement under the
camera stops. To use motion detection, make sure to set the Page
Acquisition Delay timer to 0. (See the procedure below for the
location of this option.) You can change both acquisition and
process settings for this workflow.
To acquire multiple pages automatically,
1.
From the Settings menu, select Workflow Settings, and
then Multipage-Automatic in the Name list.
113
Teacher Exercise Guide
2.
Click OK.
WYNN is now configured for Multipage-Automatic mode.
To change the Page Acquisition Delay timer for use with the
PEARL camera,
114
1.
Click the Modify button in the Workflow Settings.
2.
Select the Acquire tab, and then the Page Acquisition
Delay option.
Teacher Exercise Guide
Multipage – Prompt for Pages Workflow
Use the Multipage – Prompt for Pages workflow if you need to
acquire multiple pages that are spread through different sections
of a book. This allows you take your time to locate and then
acquire different pages. After each new page is acquired, WYNN
displays a dialog box that allows you to continue scanning pages
or stop the acquisition process.
To use this workflow, do the following.
1.
From the Acquire menu, choose Workflow, and then
Multipage – Prompt for Pages.
2.
Click the Scan button.
115
Teacher Exercise Guide
3.
In the Multipage Image Acquisition dialog box, choose
one of the following:
 Acquire Another Page. Use it to acquire the next
page and add it to the end of the acquired image
 Turn Pages Over. Use it to acquire one side of a
double-sided document, which allows you to first
acquire odd pages (for example, 1, 3, and 5), and then
acquire even pages (for example, 6, 4, and 2) in this
order. This method is ideal when using a scanner with
an automatic document feeder, or the PEARL camera.
When using PEARL, you will center the odd pages
under the camera, and then center the even pages
under the camera. During OCR processing, the pages
are placed in the correct order.
 Finished Acquiring Images. Use it to stop image
acquisition. To start another acquisition, click the Scan
button again.
4.
This process is repeated until you stop the scan. When
finished, the acquired pages now display in the open
document.
Paperback Books – Acquiring Small Documents
The Paperback Book workflow is intended for physically smaller
documents, such as paperback books, in which both pages of the
open book fit on the scanner or under the PEARL camera at the
same time. When used, the scanner or camera sees these as one
page, but WYNN processes them as two separate pages.
When acquiring a small document, you must first select the
Paperback Book workflow, next align the document on the
scanner or under the PEARL camera, and then start the
acquisition (scan).
116
Teacher Exercise Guide
1.
From the Acquire menu, click Workflow and select
Paperback Books.
A checkmark appears next to Paperback Books, which
now becomes the current workflow.
2.
Place the book sideways and face-down on the scanner,
or face-up under the PEARL camera. For PEARL, make
sure that one edge of the book is against the page guide,
and then center the book between the outer edges of the
page guide. This allows you to capture two pages at once
and maintain pagination.
Note: For smaller documents (a business card or postcard),
place a blank white sheet of paper under the PEARL
camera, and then the document on the blank page.
3.
After aligning the book, move your hands out of the way,
and press the Scan button to acquire an image and start
reading.
Note: If it is necessary to hold the book flat, make sure that your
fingertips are on the very edge of the page so that they do
not obscure any text in the acquired image.
Acquiring Difficult Text
When scanning difficult text, such as very small text, unusual
fonts, or unusual layouts, use the workflow best suited for the type
of work you are doing, and then use that is best for the task at
hand, and then use Dynamic Zoning to make the appropriate
changes to the document. See page 123 for Dynamic Zoning
procedures.
117
Teacher Exercise Guide
Creating a Workflow
While you may be satisfied using the pre-configured workflows,
you can create your own custom workflows to achieve the best
results possible when processing the material you need to access.
You can create as many workflows as you want using any
combination of settings. For example, you may like the settings in
the Acquire and Read workflow, but you need to recognize text in
another language. Or, when acquiring a book, you may want to
change the delay for automatic page acquisition, keep any blank
pages, or turn off column recognition.
To create a new workflow, do the following:
1.
Click the Settings menu and then Workflow Settings.
2.
Select any workflow from the Name list box (this will serve
as the base for your custom workflow), and then click the
Create New button. (This button is not available for
specialty workflows like the Freedom Import Printer, PDF
File, or Process Image File.)
3.
The Create New Workflow wizard opens on the Acquire
page, which contains the settings that determine how the
workflow acquires images from the scanner or PEARL
camera. By default, this page uses the settings from the
currently selected workflow.
Make changes to the Acquire settings, and, when
finished, choose Next to go to the Process page. See
Acquire Tab on page 101 for information about the
Acquire settings.
118
Teacher Exercise Guide
4.
On the Process page, configure the settings this workflow
will use when recognizing text and where the reading
cursor is positioned after the new page is added to the
document. As with the Acquire page, this page uses the
settings from the currently selected workflow. See
Process Tab on page 106 for information about the
Process settings.
5.

Rearranging Text in an Acquired Document
Dynamic Zoning allows you to define your own reading order on
an acquired page. Dynamic Zoning can also be used to avoid
recognition errors from graphics, or to exclude the speaking of
headers, footers, or other unwanted text.
Note: Use the Dynamic Zoning feature before using the
Document Clean-up feature (page 125).
1.
From the Advanced menu, click Dynamic Zoning, and
then Enable Dynamic Zoning and Show Current
Zones.
The acquired image appears in Exact View mode with all
current reading zones outlined in blue.
123
Teacher Exercise Guide
Take a moment to study the document and determine
how you want to redefine reading zones.
124
2.
Select the Re-Define button to remove the current zone
indicators so that you can redraw the zones in the correct
order.
3.
Use your mouse to draw a box around each block of text
you wish to have spoken. A red outline appears around
redefined zones.
Teacher Exercise Guide
The reading order is determined by the order in which you
define the zones. Do not draw zones around pictures or
other graphic images that cannot be spoken.
Note: If you make a mistake while redefining zones, click the
Revert button to return to the original zones on that page.
You may also use Erase to erase all zones created and
start over again.
4.
To continue changing zones on other pages of the
acquired document, press the Page Down key until the
next page appears. (The message “Loading Page”
appears in the lower left corner.) Again, the existing
zones appear in blue.
5.
Repeat step 2 and 3 to redefine the reading order for the
next page. Repeat this process for each page you wish to
re-zone.
6.
After defining new zones on all pages that apply, select
the Re-Process button. This tells WYNN to refresh the
document using the newly defined zoning order.
Correcting Text in an Acquired Document
Use the Document Clean-up feature to correct any scanning or
recognition errors that occurred during document scanning. This
feature displays both the Exact View and the Text View of the
document so you can compare them. This allows you to easily
correct errors so that the text is spoken correctly in either view.
To correct the text of an acquired document:
125
Teacher Exercise Guide
1.
From the Advanced menu, choose Document Clean-up.
WYNN displays the Text View of the document in the top
half of the window, and the Exact View of the document
in the bottom half of the window.
2.
Scroll through the Text View, and look for OCR errors.
3.
Click an incorrect word you find in the Text View.
WYNN moves your insertion point to the word. A pink
rectangle appears around the word in the Text View
window, while the same word appears as highlighted text
in the Exact View window.
126
Teacher Exercise Guide
Note: You can also click a word in the Exact View to place a pink
rectangle around the location where the word appears in
the Text View.
4.
Correct any spelling or scanning errors.
Important:
When correcting errors, do not delete the whole word. First,
type in the corrections, and then delete the errors. Deleting
the entire word prior to inserting corrections erases the link
that WYNN uses to connect the word in the Text View and
Exact View. In this case, WYNN no longer spotlights the
word in Exact View when reading.
5.
Continue searching the Text View window for OCR
errors. When you are finished, choose Document Cleanup from the Advanced menu.
6.
Click the Save button from the blue File Management
toolbar to save your corrections.
Document Clean-up Guidelines
Keep the following items in mind when using the Document
Clean-up feature.
1.
Use Exact View to reference original text.
2.
Make corrections in Text View.
3.
Keep the link between Text View and Exact View by
correcting parts of a word at a time until the entire word is
corrected. If you delete an entire word in Text View, it
breaks the link between Text View and Exact View. The
location in Exact View is no longer spotlighted.
4.
After closing the Document Clean-up feature, run Spell
Check, in Text View mode, to catch random characters
or mistaken words.
127
Teacher Exercise Guide
Guidelines for Increased Scanning Accuracy
 Use OCR Correction (Advanced menu) to catch repeated
recognition errors.
 Modify Scanning Contrast (Settings menu, Scanning
Settings command) for light text or dark paper.
 Use Dynamic Zoning to eliminate recognition of changes or
graphics.
Acquiring and Reading Other Languages in
WYNN
WYNN can acquire and read in several languages in addition to
English. These languages are installed during the initial installation
process.
Acquiring Documents in a Language other than
U.S. English
When acquiring documents that are in different language, you can
select a primary and secondary language to identify text and
characters, such as accent marks and umlauts that are unique to
a particular language. These languages only apply to the
recognition process and not the language used for WYNN speech.
The recognition language settings apply to all workflows unless
specifically configured or a particular workflow.
To select the default primary or secondary recognition language,
do the following:
128
1.
Click the Settings menu and then Workflow Settings.
2.
Next, use the Language 1 and Language 2 options to
select the primary and secondary recognition languages.
Teacher Exercise Guide
 In the Language 1 edit box, select the language that
corresponds to the language of the printed page you
are acquiring. This allows correct recognition of
characters unique to that language.
 In the Language 2 edit box, select a secondary
language to use for recognizing the acquired text. Both
Language 1 and Language 2 settings are used to
recognize text.
Note: These languages are not used by WYNN to speak; rather
they are used to identify characters unique to that language
during the recognition process.
3.
Click OK to apply your changes and close the dialog box.
Reading Documents in a Language other than
U.S. English
To change speech language settings, refer to the Adjusting
Speech section on page 57.
Selecting the Correct Word Using
Homophones
Being able to identify which word to use in a sentence can build a
student’s vocabulary. The following task provides an overview for
using the Homophones function for a student exercise.
1.
Create or provide a passage of text that contains
homophones.
You can do this by scanning text directly into WYNN, or
by providing an external document (such as a Word,
PDF, text, RTF, or HTML file) that WYNN can open.
129
Teacher Exercise Guide
2.
Ask the student to open the document, and run the
Homophones function using the Homophones button on
the yellow Writing Tools toolbar.
3.
Make sure that the student reads each definition and
selects the correct word as used in the sentence.
Broadcasting Documents and Settings
Broadcasting is a powerful function that allows teachers to
broadcast WYNN files and settings to a classroom of users. You
can log on to a single computer and download files and settings
for just the user accounts on a specific computer, or, if using the
network version of WYNN, you can broadcast files and settings to
all users on the network, regardless of which computer they use to
log in.
Note: To broadcast documents or settings, you must sign in to
WYNN using the login name Shared. This name does not
appear on the list of user names, so you must manually
enter it each time. The Broadcast Documents and
Broadcast Settings commands are not available unless you
log in with the name Shared.
Broadcasting Documents to Other Users
You can send documents to other WYNN users. This allows you to
copy documents located in the Docs folder for the login name

Adding Words to the Pronunciation
Dictionary
The Pronunciation Dictionary allows you to define how WYNN
pronounces words that it reads aloud. Speech synthesizers do a
good job of pronouncing words through a combination of text-tospeech programming and internal dictionaries. However, there
may be some words that the synthesizer does not pronounce
properly. These words vary from synthesizer to synthesizer. Using
WYNN's Pronunciation Dictionary, you can change the
pronunciation of any word.
To add a new word, phrase, or acronym to the Wynn
pronunciation dictionary:
1.
On the Advanced menu, click Pronunciation Dictionary.
The Pronunciation Dictionary dialog appears.
135
Teacher Exercise Guide
2.
Scroll through the Word List to make sure that the new
text does not appear in the pronunciation dictionary.
3.
Type the new word into the Word edit box.
4.
Enter a pronunciation for the word in the Pronunciation
edit box.
Try spelling the word phonetically using simple
combinations of consonants and vowels. Use spaces to
separate letters if you want WYNN to say the name of the
letter rather than make the associated sound (this is
useful for acronyms).
Tip:
136
You can also use spaces to isolate phonetic sounds
created by two or more letters. The synthesizer clearly
pronounces these sounds when reading the word.
5.
Click Test to hear the new pronunciation of the word.
Continue adjusting the pronunciation until you achieve the
desired pronunciation.
6.
When you are satisfied with the pronunciation, click the
Add button to update the Pronunciation Dictionary.

Activation Options
Software activation is an easy, one-time process that uses a 20character Authorization code to help Freedom Scientific verify your
product’s license. The Authorization code is available on the
Authorization CD and WYNN’s CD package. Use the Authorization
CD to copy the code to your computer. This saves the time and
trouble of having to manually type the 20-character code during
the Activation process.
If you do not have immediate Internet access, use the procedures
in this chapter to activate your product.
Before You Begin:
1.
Locate your 20-character Authorization number, which
appears on the WYNN product packaging.
2.
Install your 20-character Authorization number as
previously described in Activating WYNN on page 13.
3.
There are several ways to activate WYNN. Determine
which method you want to use. For example:
 Use the Internet to connect directly to Freedom
Scientific and use the automated activation process.
This is the fastest method and is recommended, as
described in WYNN Installation Process on page 11.
 Call Freedom Scientific’s Customer Support and
request that an Activation License code be sent to you
by e-mail or on a CD.
 Send a fax to Freedom Scientific’s Customer Support
and request that an Activation License code be sent to
you by e-mail or on a CD.
215
Activation Options
 Use another computer with Internet connectivity to
download an Activation License code from
FSActivate.com. Once it is received, it can be copied
to a disk or CD and used to activate WYNN.
