Update: Version 1.04 has been released! This version has a French interace as well as English (grâce à Dominique), and remembers the interface selection (as well as some additional configuration parameters) on subsequent runs. There is a new option in the Configure menu to treat combining diacritics as separate characters. This might be important in languages where accents represent tone and are treated as a segment above the letters. The installer is now hosted on the Outilingua.net web site.
Easy reader: produce printed booklets
You are here
Learning to read takes books. Learning to read well, and developing a love of reading, takes lots of books. Books at all different skill levels. But how are low-literacy language communities ever to get all those books in their language? They can do it with Bloom.
Bloom uses collections of "shell books" that come with multiple source languages. Read the ones you understand, type in a translation in your language, and you're done!
