    Default 4th grade science sound.

    I have a tech question about the 4th grade science. Am I supposed to hear someone reading? I've tried downloading all the plug ins and we still hear nothing. It could be that he just needs to read it and we're not supposed to hear anything but I have no way of knowing!
    Today's our first day. Please excuse the newb question! LOL

    Peedy Parrot is available to download for those who want the text-based lessons read aloud.

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!

    Thank you for your quick reply. I dowloaded the link you provided and still... nothing. What should I be doing to engage the program?

    Hi,

    So sorry to leave you waiting for an answer. Somehow I missed your post before now.

    Peedy can be tricky.

    There are 4 components to download and he won't work on anything but Internet Explorer. Additionally Windows XP users also have to download an extra component to make it work on XP.

    The hints page that Kelly linked you to will explain more about Peedy.

    Instead of Peedy (since I am a diehard Firefox user) I have tried Natural Readers.(suggested by a member of ours who was done with trying to download Peedy)

    There are versions you can buy but there is also a free download of one voice. It's a robotic voice, much like Peedy's, but it will read any text you highlight on your screen.

    Click here to download the free version.

    Hope this helps.

    Kris
