Input your text and generate its stressed version
The main window of StressTeacher is fairly basic and unimpressive, featuring two panels corresponding to the 'Source Text' and 'Stressed Result', enabling you to input your text either manually or paste it from clipboard; it does not support importing documents containing the targeted words.
After pressing the 'Stress Text' button, the program will display within a few moments the accentuated equivalent of each word, allowing you to copy the result to clipboard and paste it in another file or window.
Additionally, it also features a few basic editing functions, namely 'Cut', 'Copy', 'Paste' and 'Delete'. In the right lower corner of StressTeacher, you can adjust the size of the font, increasing or decreasing it by means of the left and right arrow buttons.
