You may have read about the Times Reader back in April when it was previewed at the American Society of Newspaper Editors convention. It’s now available for download to Windows Vista beta users! The Times Reader enhances the onscreen reading experience through Windows Presentation Foundation, Microsoft’s advanced display technology in Windows Vista. As readers change font or window size, the text dynamically redraws to optimize both readability and on-screen layout. With WPF, the Times Reader can completely replicate the “look” of the print version of the NY Times, including fonts, typeface and layout, much more closely than its Web site now does.
It’s very cool; here are some hi-res screen shots.
