RFS: package TextTrainer
I'm looking for a sponsor for TextTrainer, a small learning helper written in
c++ / qt4. The software is licensed under the GPL.
Description: program which helps you learn native or foreign language texts by
TextTrainer is a program which helps you memorise poems
or plain texts in your native or in some foreign language. You
learn by repeatedly reading aloud texts while more and more
words are hidden (i.e. replaced by "_"). This will help you learning
a poem, parts of your text for a play, or basic phrases of a
foreign language before you go on holiday.
Data files for TextTrainer can contain the plain text, as well
as translations and pronounciation guides. Data files can be
created with TextTrainer itself, or with any standard text editor.
Some example texts can be found in /usr/share/texttrainer/data,
other texts can be installed via separate packages, or you can
create your own.
There is also an html-documentation (with screenshots):
The package can be found here:
or just add
deb http://home.arcor.de/j_kanev/software/debian unstable main
to your apt/sources.list.
Lintian reports neither errors nor warnings.
I would be very nice if somebody were interested in this little piece of
software. Learning texts this way really works, and I find it to be quicker
and more reliable than other methods. The thing looks quite neat (qt4, using
KDE icons), and I use it quite often. So, I guess this would be nice to have
Lots of regards, Jacob.
