Now available in Japanese, English and Simplified Chinese, this tool allows children to enjoy the experience of listening and reading aloud. You can not only listen to the story recorded by the narrator, but also record your voice and use the Voice Changer function. With your family, friends, whoever, please enjoy reading aloud and recording to make the story yours.
The following video shows how to use it. (Japanese)
[What is Koe-Pale?]
Koe-Pale is an electronic picture book that permits recording a story and enjoying it as in a picture-card show.
The scripts are recorded separately for each main character and the voices are stored. Therefore, just like colors in a palette,
different voices can be assigned to different characters (for instance, you play the main role, mom plays role X, dad plays role Y, etc.)
Try it in your family or with friends. There is also a feature that permits transforming the recorded voice. Even when a single person records
all the roles, they will sound differently for each character when heard.
