Computer Kids got its start as a simple program that would help my daughter associate words with pictures. She loved it and that gave me an idea. I bet there were parents that would love to use Computer Kids to help their children in the same way as I did.

Computer Kids works very simply. It has a database of pictures that come up on the screen in a variety of ways. As the picture displays a voice (my voice) speaks the word to the viewer. I expanded on some options that let you select specific categories to view and delays between viewing and hearing the word. I have just added a sign language feature for children that are hearing impaired.

This is a work in progress and I have created the program so you can create your own libraries of pictures and sounds. The initial download will include a few starter libraries (Foods, Everyday Items and Numbers) but you can add additional libraries such as; Alphabet, Animals, Signs, Weather, Colors, Shapes, etc.

I would be interested in your feedback regarding this program and suggestions you might have for its improvement. Yes I am offering this program free of charge, no strings attached. Why? Because I believe there is a time to give something away just like there is a time to make a profit. I hope in that same spirit, children all over can benefit from Computer Kids. Enjoy!
