Many students today take laptops to classes, replacing the old pens & papers. With modern laptops, beside creating a Word file summary for the lecture, one can also record the lecture using the laptop's built-in microphone. Even though recording the lecture is fairly easy, not many students do this, for the obvious reason that working with voice files is not as comfortable as working with written summaries. Wanting to make voice recordings more accessible and easy-to-work-with, we've created Synx - an application used to record as you type, synchronizing the voice and the keyboard strokes. Later, when reading your summary, simply click a location in the document to hear what the lecturer was saying at that moment. Synx also provides an accessible way to search the web, translate or read a Wikipedia article from Word itself, simplifying activities frequently needed when working with a document. Synx is a Word 2007 add-in that blends into Word as a new ribbon. To record the lecture, use the record, pause, stop, and enable/disable sound buttons. To search the web, select the text containig the search-term and click the Search button (You can choose which search provider to use). To translate, choose the from and to languages and the text you want to translate, then click the Go button. The translation uses Google-Translate. To read a Wikipedia article, select the text containing the definition and click the Wiki button.
