It's a funny thing about help authoring software - the tools that we use to write the help documentation have generally not evolved at the same pace as the stuff we're documenting. So, as the software that we're explaining gets more and more complicated, we're still stuck with the same tools that require us to map out our topics, figure out what's important, dissect each screenshot, and so on. With complex applications, you end up spending most of your time researching and less time writing.

What if I told you that there's help authoring software that will write help documentation for you? That all you needed to do was to introduce this app to your software interface, and the app would automatically create topics that you could simply flesh out?

Dr. Explain is an automated help authoring tool that produces your choice of output formats - CHM, HTML, online manuals, and even printed documentation. Dr. Explain analyzes the structure of your software's screens and forms and automatically generates numbered annotations for each GUI element - every button, icon, field, menu, and toolbar. As the help author, your job just got a lot easier. All you need to do is add the descriptive text to each annotation to explain each function. Dr. Explain condenses hours of work into just a few minutes!

Dr. Explain will astound you with its flexibility. The output files that are produced by Dr. Explain can easily be invoked by a variety of programming languages such asC, C++, Visual Basic, C#, VB.NET, ASP.NET, WinForms, WPF, Delphi & Object Pascal, Clarion, FoxPro, PHP, Perl, HTML, and JavaScript, to name just a few!

Dr.Explain Regular License v5.4.1030 ($190)
Dr.Explain Advanced License v5.4.1030 ($290)

Dennis Crane @Stephen Kreyling:
We plan to release 6.0 in a couple of months. The upgrade will be free for all 5.x users. It will include 64bit version of the app with new UI and some new features.
As for WordPress and other integration, we're designing an API to connect Dr.Explain to other systems. Likely, it will be useful with WP also.

@Wearsie Jackson:
Could you please contact us via and send more details there (web browser version, screenshots of the error and etc)? Thanks.

Wearsie Jackson @Dennis Crane - I tried emailing and received the following error:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:
'' - Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable
invalid DNS MX or A/AAAA resource record
ALSO - I submitted a support ticket last night to bluesnap (zendesk) as indicated on the purchase page but received absolutely no response.

Dr Explain is a great product and I'm very interested in purchasing another Advance license but have been totally unsuccessful after making numerous attempts on different Win10 computers using Chrome, IE, Edge browsers.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Rich Ackerson I am receiving the same error as Wearsie Jackson when I try to purchase. I was also trying to purchase an Advance license. My attempt was from a Windows 7 Ultimate system running FireFox.
