Rhonda, The system you are describing sounds much like the Kurzweil 2000. I know that a number of colleges have site licenses for it, and I have heard that it is also widely used by non-LD students. It may also be purchased directly by the consumer/student for home use.

The mother of an incoming special needs students came in last week to ask if we used the "Wynn" program here. Apparently it is a program that facilitates the reading of a text book to a student, via his/her computer. She said other (bigger) schools they had been to use it. It sounds like the book gets scanned into something and then the student is able to pop in a disk and listen to his text book. I'm sure this is probably very popular. Can anybody give me any information about it, or something like it? Currently we go through Recordings for the Blind & Dyslexic which is not optimal for college students who need books in a hurry. Oh, by the way, I'm Rhonda Linseman, TLC director and special needs counselor at Northwood University (small private business school in the woods in Midland, Michigan). Thanks!
