Great Little Application

Great Little Application

Summers are great because I have more time to try out new software. With the work on the upcoming language technology boot camp manual (released next Friday! more on that soon), I learned a lot more about inDesign CS3.

But that program is a behemoth, sometimes overly complicated. So I am also a big fan of little apps that get the job done. For language learners (and Mac users), this free little app might be useful:

DialectX

It’s very simple: you speak into the microphone and then hear yourself – with a (customizable) delay. That’s it. Definitely plug in a ear buds or a headset before starting the software. Enjoy.
