Alinea is a smart text supporting tool with many features like having texts read aloud, using word prediction and spell check, searching words and reading and writing in your digital books and pdf-files. There is support in 4 languages : Dutch, French, English and German, with automatic language recognition and corresponding voices.
The software package Academic Software, bought by every student, includes the tool Alinea. This powerful text supporting tool can be installed on a windows-pc or used online with the Alinea Web app on Windows or Mac. The tool helps with reading or writing texts.
So there is a version to be installed locally on your Windows computer and also an online Alinea Web App (for Windows and Mac).
