Recap Writer

You can read an early version of the Help file if you're new to this business. The Recap Writer automatically finds the best word in each round, but you may want to download CountMax, a program with the same functionality, if the live version is not working for some reason.

Recap writer for various formats: 15 rounds; 9 rounds; old-style finals; Masters.
