Perroquet is an open source application that allows users to prepare sequences of video or audio files, with subtitles. The trainee has to guess a few missing words each time the record is paused.
This application offers the ability to devise oral comprehension exercises using audio or video files and subtitles. With the help of subtitles time-codes, Perroquet cuts the video and the learner has to type the words they hear.
After having identified the files to use, Perroquet will read a piece of video then pause. It will show you the number of words to find and you will have to type them to continue. You can listen a sequence as many times as necessary. If you do not understand, Perroquet offers several means to help you.
- Exercise languages.
- Exercise manager provides the access to an exercise’s online database.
- Aliases and synonyms.
- Multi files exercises.
- Works with every media file your computer can read.
- Autosave exercise at exit.
