<title>Description</title>
<para>
GNU Solfege is a program that let you use your computer 
to do ear training. You will get the most complete version of
the program if you run it on a machine that has GNOME installed.
But it will also run on more limited setups like linux or win32
with only python, gtk+ and PyGTK installed. 
</para>

<para>
This man page contains info to get Solfege
up and running. For help on using the program, please use the
online documentation.
