[start] Thank you for trying out Open Allure. This software takes a script from a wiki page and plays it using text-to-speech while opening web pages of interest. For example, this text links to the Wiki Educator home page http://wikieducator.org/Main_Page There are lots of links here. For someone new, it might be a bit confusing. It might be nice to begin with a getting started tutorial http://wikieducator.org/Wikieducator_tutorial/Getting_started This tutorial also involves a lot of reading. Perhaps things could be explained step-by-step. Begin by creating an account http://wikieducator.org/Wikieducator_tutorial/Getting_started/Create_Moodle-account Once you log in, you will see the participant's view http://wikieducator.org/Wikieducator_tutorial/Getting_started/Participants_view There are several ways to navigate http://wikieducator.org/Wikieducator_tutorial/Getting_started/Navigation You can click on the toolbar or press Alt and Tab to switch windows. Bread crumbs help you to keep track of your progress and location. But eventually, you want to find your learning Activities http://wikieducator.org/Wikieducator_tutorial/Getting_started/Activities There are three main types of activity: independent study, discussion, and actions to perform. Give it a try. And don't be afraid to click on things to find out where they lead. If you want to back up, just click your browser's back button. To back up in this voice over, press the left arrow key. Restart ...;[start] [input];;
What if you (or a student) could talk to the computer and have it talk back? What if, while the computer was talking, you (or a student) could raise a hand to ask a question? No mouse, no keyboard, just the voice and vision enabled interactions that take place naturally in a learning situation.
These are the goals of Open Allure DS (http://openallureds.org): an open source, voice-and-vision enabled dialog system written in Python. Watch introductory and demo videos at http://bit.ly/openallure and sign up with the Open Allure DS Google group at http://groups.google.com/group/open-allure-ds
