Two way interactive sound on a standalone Macintosh platform
AbstractRecent policy statements released by both Federal and State governments indicate official willingness to explore the possibilities of the new technologies in language teaching at all educational levels. In this article, the author discusses his experiments in using the Macintosh computer as a standalone, two way interactive language teacher, with the ability to record and play back the learner's attempts at pre-recorded words and phrases in a genuinely interactive sense. Success has been achieved using the MacRecorder, the AudioPalette in HyperCard 2 and Authorware Professional. These developments will prove of interest to those involved in computer-assisted language learning (CALL).
