ANN: Dr.Explain Reduces Time to Document Software Applications

Dr.Explain is a tool that lets drastically reduce the time
required to produce help files and documentation for software.
The unique technology automates the process of software user
interface documenting as it has eliminated much of the drudgery
of screenshots capturing, editing and annotating.

Dr.Explain captures screens from your live application,
analyzes them, and makes stunning screenshot images. Each
screenshot is automatically annotated with numbered references
to all Windows buttons, edit fields, radio buttons, dropdown
lists, toolbars, trees, and other controls. In addition,
Dr.Explain creates a numbered paragraph with preset text for
each of these numbered controls. Simply alter text in each
numbered paragraph, and you'll have almost everything that
you need to document your applications GUI.

Dr.Explain keeps your documentation in a single source project
file, and makes it easy to make modifications and revisions.
It produces help files in CHM or HTML format (online manuals),
as well as RTF documentation files that can be printed or loaded
online.

Dr.Explain takes much pain out of creating documentation. By
automating the process, the savings in time and tedium on a
single development project will pay for the software many times
over.

Dr.Explain runs under Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista. It processes
the applications made with all major Windows and web development
environments, including Visual Studio C/C++/C#/.NET/MFC/WTL/WinForms,
Visual BASIC, Delphi, Clarion, Java (SWING), HTML web pages,
and SWF flash applications.

Dr.Explain costs $125(US) for a single-user Regular License. The
single-user Advanced License costs $165(US), and includes
additional tools and features, command line support. You can
download a free trial version from the product's web site -
