Hack for Mashed - Kamaelia Speak And Learn

June 22, 2008 at 06:10 AM | categories: python, oldblog | View Comments

This hack is a "toy" for a small child to assist them to learn to read and write. They are asked to write specific words - both textually and also using speech synthesis. What they write is then read out to them. This version is by no means "complete", but it works. It currently allows a child to learn to write the word cat :-)

Where to Get it:

First initial version here:


~/incoming/> tar zxvf Kamaelia\ Speak\ N\ Learn-1.0.0.tar.gz

Where's the Source?


~> SpeakNLearn.py
