My GF is looking for a program that she can use with a 7yr old child she works with. Basically, something so that when they press a letter on the keyboard, they hear the letter they pressed. Maybe something a blind kid could use to learn the layout of the keyboard (by hearing the letter’s s/he presses aloud).
It could be anything really. A game, a plug-in for MS word or whatever. Free is best, natch.
Any ideas? You might just be better at doing a search for this kind of thing than me.
Commodore 64 had a SAM (Software Automated Mouth – or something along those lines) that would do a half-decent job of speaking whatever was typed. Its vowels left a little to be desired, but I could get it to cuss like a sailor!
Seems like I hunted for some freeware that would do similar things for a PC, but it’s been a long time and I don’t recall if I ever found one.
Have you looked at Jumbo od CNet or one of the freeware sites?
