SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - Fonix Speech, an operating division of Fonix Corporation (OTC BB: FNIX), announced the retail availability of JumpStart Reading with Karaoke from Knowledge Adventure, one of the largest educational software developers in the world. JumpStart Reading with Karaoke integrates the Fonix VoiceIn speech interface in a unique and fun learning product for children ages 4-7. As part of the agreement, Fonix receives a software license fee from Knowledge Adventure.
"JumpStart Reading with Karaoke is the first game in Knowledge Adventure's new Voice Activated Learning series," says Leslie House, senior vice president of product development, Knowledge Adventure. "Knowledge Adventure has created Val, (short for Voice Activated Learning), a lovable cat that encourages children to read out loud and provides feedback on each sound and word they say. Children interact directly with the product for a unique and effective learning experience. Fonix speech recognition, which can identify children's voices, is especially relevant to our innovative teaching tools."
