The Talking Spelling Bee is a talking interactive spelling tutor. Unlike
most educational products, it is more about learning than bells and
whistles. There are enough bells and whistles to keep kids interested
but enough teaching technology to serve both teachers and students with
years of customizable lessons and expandability. Let the Talking
Spelling Bee grow with you and your kids. Quickly incorporate your
weekly spelling and vocabulary list into the game to help student?fs ace
their exams. Confidence and grades will escalate as kids have lots of
fun at learning how to spell.
The Talking Spelling Bee, is truly a spelling bee! Kids can interact
with siblings, parents or classmates at school. This will nurture good
sportsmanship and eliminate the sense of isolation associated with most
computer learning. This is a bonus feature! The Talking Spelling Bee can
also be played in One Player Mode, against the computer.
The Talking Spelling Bee uses Macintosh Text To Speech. This enables
users to just type new words in rather then have to record spelling
lists word by word. The Speech Manager will accurately pronounce the
words. This saves you lots of time and opens the Talking Spelling Bee to
endless possibilities. Import spelling list from you favorite word
processor or just type them in on the fly. Lists can be of any length
and combination. There are 12 customizable word banks for you to store
your favorite words in. Quickly switch between word banks to accommodate
different grades and reading levels. This makes the Talking Spelling Bee
timeless. Ages 4 through Adult can play. Get lots of reuse out of your
spelling list too. The Talking Spelling Bee, also allows you to print a
variety of tests based on the word list. No two tests will ever be the
same! Easily generate fun written homework for your kids. Save lots of
money on lesson books that can only be used once!
The Talking Spelling Bee is a great program for the money. It combines
four previous ECR programs into one.
