Understand English Better : VoiceBook

ISO | 5.92 GB

Half a million people in the world
now understand English better thanks to VOICEbooks, one of the
best-selling multimedia language-learning applications of all time.

ne of the reasons for the success of VOICEbooks is that using a
VOICEbook Player is very simple and intuitive: listen to what the person
is saying, and write down what you understand. If you have chosen the
right level of VOICEbooks for you, then you will generally understand
between 50% and 80% of the words – unfortunately, even if you understand
90%, you can never be completely sure that the most important detail in
the message wasn’t in the 10% you didn’t understand (you have probably
had that experience 1000 times when listening to a foreign language,

This is when the powerful features of the VOICEbook Player come into
action, making VOICEbooks a real learning experience, and not just a
frustrating testing software:
Dictionary mode. You can ask the VOICEbook Player to give you a
definition of any of the words in the phrase – you can ask for
definitions of words you have completed and even of those you did not
Spellcheck mode. You can ask the VOICEbook Player to correct your
spelling if you got a word half right. Yes, the VOICEbook Player is so
intelligent that it recognises words which are half correct. (Most
language software applications will simply tell you that you are wrong
if you write "Englis" instead of "English" – the VOICEbook Player will
tell you that you are almost right, showing you "English" and inviting
you to add the final letter.)
Letter-by-letter mode. You can ask the VOICEbook Player to give you a
letter in a word that you don’t understand so that you can try and
complete the word phonetically, one letter at a time.
Grammar mode. (only available for VOICEbooks in English) You can ask
the VOICEbook Player for grammar notes for any of the grammar-linked
words in the text. Sometimes you will understand the words but you will
not be able to understand the meaning because of the grammar. The
grammar link will show you the grammar rule being used in this phrase.
Comments. You can choose to display comments about the text each time
you complete a phrase. Sometimes you will understand all of the words
in a text but you will not be able to understand the meaning because
there are some details which are difficult to understand – this could be
cultural references, difficult syntax, notes about pronunciation or any
other comment which helps you to understand the real meaning of the

Minimum system requirements

Multimedia PC Pentium 133 or higher
32 Mb RAM (64 recommended)
10 Mb hard disk space for the VOICEbook Player
2-5 Mb hard disk space for each VOICEbook
Graphics card 800 x 600 x 256 colors
Windows 98, Windows Millennium, Windows NT 3.51, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 (but not Windows 95)

We think VOICEbooks are wonderful - and we're happy to say we're not the
only ones. About half a million people around the world have improved
their English with VOICEbooks, and many of them have bought whole series
of CD-ROMs – in fact worldwide sales have passed 2 million CD-ROMs
(which means over 10 million VOICEbooks)!

VOICEbooks use recordings of about 2 minutes in length in one of the
following foreign languages: English, French, German, Spanish and
Italian. Some are easy enough for beginners to use, while some other
VOICEbooks are so difficult that even people who have studied for years
still find it a challenge to complete them, and of course there are many
different intermediate levels in between.

VOICEbooks give you very concentrated interactive listening work, as we
want you to improve your language listening, not just demonstrate to
yourself what you know and what you don’t, so each VOICEbook seems to
take between 1 and 2 hours of study per minute of recording. That means
that a 2-minute VOICEbook will give you enough material for up to 4
hours of work, all for a price of just 4.5 Euros (currently about 5
US$), which is a very small price to pay for the improvements you will
be making using VOICEbooks.

Like the taste of strawberries, VOICEbooks are not easy to define, but
like strawberries they are very easy to understand when you use them. So
we suggest that you download a free demo VOICEbook now to try one out
(and you can't do that with strawberries, either, can you?). A practical
demonstration is worth a thousand words, so instead of reading all the
fantastic things we have to say, we recommend trying out the product
yourself – don’t worry, you have nothing to lose: if you decide you
don’t want to use VOICEbooks ever again, you’ve only wasted 20 minutes
of your life.

For those of you who prefer to read theoretical descriptions before you
will download something and try it out, click on the definition of
VOICEbooks first anyway (and if you're still a little confused by the
jargon, don't worry - you'll understand things better when we show you
what VOICEbooks are).

ENJOY !!!!
