English flashcards with sound
I created a set of English picture flashcards and I �ve now added sound to them.  The first 40 are free to download from vocabzone
I �ve also created French and Spanish flashcards.  Before I start to add sound to these I would like them double checked by somebody who has French or Spanish as a mother tongue.
If you can help me please contact me at [email protected]
In exchange I would give you any of the full sets of 800 flashcards, in whichever langauge(s) you wish, for free.

Ciao Bella. How amazing! How did you do? How could you add a sound to an image? I do it in a power point or on a Worksheet that is in my computer, but not the way you did!    Thanks

Hello, Bella W!!!

As far as the kind of phonetic trancription of the flashcards in Spanish is concerned, I would like to tell you that it is not very precise in the sense that some of the words will be bound to be mispronounced!!! However, I think it is a great job!!!

Thank you everyone.  All your replies and the help I have received have been fantastic. 
I created the flashcards as follows:
- I created the flashcards in microsoft word (pictures and text boxes). 
- Then converted the word file to a PDF file. 
- Then used a program called Text Aloud to recorded each word as a .wav file using a Text To Speach English voice
- Then added the .wav files to the PDF files using the sound tool in Adobe Acrobat
Eventually I want to create flashcards with two languages on.  For example, English with French underneath.  I also want to add more languages in time. 
Thank you.
