Make your own mini Talking Book with


Mini-Book Creator!

Children can experience the fun of creating and publishing their own books with this simple software. They can narrate their own audio and can build a display of the titles they have authored! This new software gives the user the ideal tool to suit their needs: MFL students can learn simple words in French by taking photos, typing words and recording themselves speaking in French. For EAL Students, teachers can record speech for pupils so they can practise their English. The PENpal user can practise their pronunciation, build their vocabulary and gain confidence in communicating. (Mini-book creator is being used extensively in adult education in Norway)

Place a picture (a photo or your own drawing) on every page in the software. You can type the text using the software, or wait until you have printed it out and write the text by hand. Then print on to our special Storyfold paper. This A4 paper will fold into an 8-page book. Need more pages? Just carry on and bind with staples and tape. Or, if you want to make talking cards, just cut the A4 paper to the right size.

Record your voice onto every page of your own book! Each page is sound enabled for use with our TalkingPEN. So you can create talking books or talking cards! Easy! Not only can children write their own books but they can also record and re-record their own narrations straight onto the pages. The Mini-Book Creator Pack is priced at £80 + vat. The Pack contains the Mini-Book Creator Software, a PENpal and one pad of Storyfold Paper (50 pages).
