[prMac.com] Madison, Wisconsin - Independent developer Barrett Jacobsen has released SpellNSay 1.0.1, his new app for the revolutionary new iPad. Remember Speak and Spells? Well now you can have an improved version right on your iPad. Spell out a sentence and have the text to speech engine say it for you - or replace any words with recordings of your own voice - right in the application.
The Text-To-Speech engine can speak any word - including names, and comes with four different voices to help customize the sound. Further customization is available by recording your own words right in the app. The Text-To-Speech engine fills in any gaps, allowing for a mix of pre-recorded and automatically generated words. Your child will love it as you type out a sentence and have it spoken to you in your own voice.
There's no limit to the number of words you can pre-record (assuming your iPad has enough disk space) - record all your friends and family's names, your favorite foods, pet names, favorite toys - anything you want can be spoken and intermingled with the words generated with the text to speech engine!
Bright colors and images adorn all of the letters, helping children to associate animals, household objects, and other items with the letter they start with. Pressing each letter will announce both the letter and the object, to create a strong audio/visual association between the letter and its name (this can be disabled for those who just want to get right to the "Say" part).
