Audio Gallery is a Talking Picture Dictionary. The world's first
program of its type on any platform, Version 1.0 released in 1990.

Features include:

1. Voice Echo - add reverberation to the voice - and vary the
depth of the echo from a thin echo to an auditorium-sized return.
2. Auto - Set the program to endlessly repeat the words and
listen to them while you do something else.
3. Twenty-five to thirty-five different scenes.
4. Digitized sound - French is Parisian accent; Spanish is
Bolivian accent; Chinese is Mandarin dialect; Portuguese is Brazilian
Portuguese. 
5. Quizzes - to test your new knowledge
6. Dictionary - Foreign Language/English and English/Foreign Language 
7. Russian - Cyrillic characters; Chinese - traditional characters;
Japanese - katakana, hiragana, and Kanji; Korean - Hangul characters.
8. Versions in Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese, German, Italian,
Spanish, French, Russian, and English for German/French/Spanish speakers,
English for Japanese/Chinese speakers, English for Korean speakers, and
English for Russian speakers. 

New - Make your own Audio Gallery: English for your native language, 
or Your Native Language for English/German (See section in this file
on making your own Audio Gallery).  
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Installation: Make a new directory on your WorkBench, and copy
the *.lha file you just downloaded to that directory. Uncompress
the archive and, from the WB, click on the "GalleryDemo" icon.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Now you can make your own Audio Gallery to learn English in 
your own language. To see how to do this, start with the demo:

 1. Download the AGEngRom.lha demo program.

 2. After loading it onto your hard drive, go to
the "alphabets" directory and pull up the "pic01"
file in your text editor. You will see some numbers
and then some English words....

table
door
chair
...

further down, you will see some French words...

la table
la porte
la chaise
...

 3. Translate the English words into your language, and
replace the French words with your translations.

 4. Save the file and start the program. Select a
topic (there is only selectable topic in the demo)
and after the scene loads, click on "French" in the
"Translation" menu. Also be sure to select "translation"
in the "English Gallery" Menu so the translations are
visible. 
 
 5. Be sure not to add any blank lines, extra LF or CR
characters, or otherwise alter the "pic01" file, or else
the Audio Gallery program won't work! To be safe, make a
copy of the "pic01" file before you start experimenting.

 6. To change the WorkBench (GUI) interface for Audio
Gallery so that the menus and buttons will be in your own
language, you will have to change the "Constants" file. 
This is a longer process; send e-mail to the author for 
details. Basically, you must modify all of the "French" 
lines to your language. Or you could modify all of the 
"Spanish", or "German" lines. 

   For your language in German, please contact the author. 
The process is only a little longer. By this is meant to
have your language with the GUI in German.
    If you would perform the translation of the full 
("Full" meaning all of the vocabulary - not just the GUI)
English version to your language (exceptions - French, 
German, Spanish, Italian, English, Chinese, Korean, 
Japanese, Portuguese and Russian - which have already 
been done) you then have the right to distribute or sell
as many copies of the new version translated version in 
the native country of that language, as you wish. For
example, suppose you translated it into Serbian. Then 
you could sell or distribute as many copies of Audio
Gallery in Yugoslavia/Serbia as you wish, but not 
elsewhere. 

   There is a similar process to make an Audio Gallery so
that others can learn your native language - however, you
must record the vocabulary, too. Please contact the author
if you really want to do this. Again, you would have all
rights to distribute the new version in your own country. 
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Distribution: This demo is freely distributable.
