In this video I'll show you 3 ways to supercharge your learning experience using the SpeakToYourMind Flashcard Desktop App.
 


Video Transcription

In this video I'll show you why using text-to-speech, word highlighting, and word captioning will supercharge your learning experience.

Text-To-Speech

First, using the Study Manually module as an example, SpeakToYourMind uses the female and male text-to-speech voices built into Windows 10 to speak a flashcard question and answer out loud. 

I've turned speech on and we'll use Microsoft Zira Desktop for this example.

Microsoft Zira Desktop speaking: What is the name of the river that flows from Lake Itasca in Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico in Louisiana?

Microsoft Zira Desktop speaking: The Mississippi River, also know as the Mighty Mississippi.

 
 Text-To-speech gives you the benefit of using your auditory sense to learn by listening to your flashcards.
 

If you like to learn by listening, you will benefit by using your auditory sense.


Word Highlighting

Second, the new highlighting feature is synchronized with the voice. 

I'll turn highlighting on and we'll use Microsoft David Desktop for this example.

Watch as each word is highlighted as the question or answer is being spoken.

Microsoft David Desktop speaking: How many feet tall does a hill have to be in order to be considered a mountain?

Microsoft David Desktop speaking: A hill has to be at least 1,968.5 feet tall, or 500 meters, to be considered a mountain.

 
 Highlighting the word as the flashcard is being spoken using text-to-speech increases your attention span and learning retention
 

Word highlighting helps increase your attention span and learning retention.  


Word Captioning

Third, the new captioning feature is also synchronized with the voice. 

In this example, I'm using the Study Automatically module and Microsoft Zira Desktop. 

As the flashcard question or answer is spoken, each word is captioned in real time in a separate area at the bottom of the screen. 

Microsoft Zira Desktop speaking: What is the longest river in the United States?

Notice the captioning at the bottom of the screen.

Microsoft Zira Desktop speaking: The Missouri River, which is about 2,540 miles long.

 
 Captioning the flashcard word when spoken using text-to-speech improves vocabulary and word recognition and also improves reading and listening comprehension
 

Word captioning increases vocabulary and word recognition, and also improves reading and listening comprehension.

As you've seen in this video, the benefits of the new word highlighting and captioning features combined with the benefits of text-to-speech give you 3 ways to supercharge your learning.
