The tool tries to facilitate text comprehension, in particular for people with dyslexia, by means of summaries and mental maps. In a given domain, the tool defines an ontology describing actors and actions they are involved in. Verbal frames are used to map verbs (representing actions) and nouns (representing actors). A rule-based approach permits to select relevant portions of text, creating a summary. Moreover, the text can be represented as a graph (mental map). Finally, the tool permits to discover new concepts, adding them to the domain ontology.
