If you still need sounds for this, there is a whole bunch here: http://sounds.beachware.com/index.htm

And they have the entire alphabet (and numbers) spoken in English, French and Spanish, so you could make it multi-lingual.

About a year ago I had plans on making an application very similar to yours (but with various educational activities & games for older kids, too), and those are the sounds I planed on using for it. (I own the CD)

The sounds from the site are free to use for noncommercial purposes and you can get the full collection on disk with commercial usage rights for $20 (that's a bargain)

unbelievable, i did not expect this in the slightest.. I entered NANY 2009 because I thought it would motivate me to finish (well start actually) a project that I'd been contemplating for 6 months or more!

My website is serving 15gb per day!

Ok, I've tested on Vista and I can see what you're talking about. Sad

I'm currently on the road, so I won't get a chance to do any coding until the weekend, so I'll try to get an updated version out on Monday that will include Multiple Display Support and (hopefully) Vista support.

App, Thanks for the link, I used http://www.freesound.org/ for all the sounds in CLF.

Well a promise is a promise, here's CrazyLittleFingers v1.1  Thmbsup

Added Features

Support For Dual Screen Displays
  • Images displayed on Primary monitor
  • Secondary monitor darkened and inaccessible via mouse

Can someone with Vista please test to see if the 'squashed' image problem is resolved.

Hi.
I have the same problem with the squished images, but I have XP! (pro, sp3). huh
The only Vista-like thing I have is QTTabbar and QTAddressbar - windows explorer addons.
Other things I have speculated about causing this is Picasa 3 and XnView Shell Extension.
And other things running on my system is flashnote, launchy, avg, comodo, mediadetect, rbtray and stickies.
I hope it is resolved - have at two-year old who is crazy about this keyboard.  undecided

hmm, I won't have access to a vista machine for a few days, might have to turn on some logging.

Now that is strange, because I'm using xp sp3, i also have picasa3, but none of the rest.

thanks for the feedback, I'll see what I can do.

When I try to unzip crazylittlefingers.zip, it asks me for a password, which I don't see referenced anywhere here. Am I missing something?

Hi dhc02, there's a good chance you were downloading while I was uploading the 1.1 release (my internet was very slooooow last night), please try again and let me know how you go.

in fact i have been getting bad zip for a while now.. come on kwacky!  maybe back a small zip version, and then an addon pack for those who have magic powers and can download it without corruptio.
how about I archive it to floppies and mail it to you  cheesy

Downloaded and extracted CrazyLittleFingers.zip with UniversalExtractor. Here's the error that I get for CrazyLittleFingers.exe:
I think you might need to download it again too.

From now on I'll upload into a sub-directory instead of overwriting the live file  Thmbsup

Pushing the key 5 times turns on the Sticky Keys Feature Dialog Box. Also, right clicking on the secondary monitor activates the taskbar on the primary one. Other than that, it seems to work great  thumbs up.

Edit: Resized image.

Pushing the SHIFT key 5 times turns on the Sticky Keys Feature Dialog Box. Also, right clicking on the secondary monitor activates the taskbar on the primary one. Other than that, it seems to work great  thumbs up.

I haven't looked into disabled the accessiblity keys while the program is running, there's probably a reg key I can hit or something.

You shouldn't be able to right click on the secondary monitor, but I found a bug in my code (who would've thought)
The GUI is meant to be The width of Desktop 1 + Desktop 2 (eg 1280+1280 = 2560, or 1280+800 = 2080), however there was a typo and the current version is adding up the width of Desktop 2 + Desktop 2, so that's ok if you've got the same res on both monitors, but in my second example the GUI would only be 1600 wide and not cover the entire second monitor.

Thanks for your thorough testing PhilB66, v1.1.2 should be available in a couple of days.

i have 4 monitors by the way -- and the full screen images and sounds are very nice.  might be nice to blank all the screens though.
