Fellow Techwrl-ers:

My sister-in-law is looking for a utilitity or application that can
read text and calculate the Flesch (sp?) readability indes for that
text. I guess this index is similar to the FOG index. The output is
a grade-leave assigned to the text, for example, 8th grade reading level.

Do any of you know of a program that will input text and print out a
detailed analysis/explanation and grade-level assignment according to the
rules of the Flesch Index?
