"A truly original idea is a rare thing ... FairBrothers, Inc. in the US has apparently achieved the impossible by releasing a product that stands alone in the market, offering the answer to a question that's hitherto been ignored ... the mastering of a foreign language. If you happen to be in the market, Audio Gallery could be the perfect solution. The software is designed to provide a complete library of everyday words in a whole range of languages. All in all it's a good package and ideal for teaching children could become the perfect learning tool for all ages." Amiga Computing

"Audio Gallery Japanese is aimed at elementary-level linguists and can form a useful aid to other learning systems, or can be used as a stand-alone product...a useful educational tool which teaches by rote. The sampled speech provides a unique guide to pronunciation essential tool." CU Amiga

"The program makes use of the Amiga's excellent sound capabilities and provides digitized voices of native speakers - a most expedient way to learn a foreign language ... Simply point and click on a number, and the digitized voice of a German speaker pronounces the name of the object selected .,.the program provides specific lessons on the correct pronunciation of German consonants and vowels...Audio Gallery's greatest strength lies in its ability to reproduce what a word sounds like when properly pronounced by a native speaker of the language. The program excels in this regard, because the digitized speaker is always clear and easy to understand. The quizzes available on each topic serve to enhance familiarity with the terms ... Serves admirably as an accessory learning tool." Amiga World

"I always hated the Language Lab. Listening to tape was tedious, boring and required endless rewinding.-The best thing about Audio Gallery is that it doesn't require any rewinding... unlike a human teacher, it never gets tired ...At the heart of Audio Gallery is crystal-clear digitized speech. Fairbrothers has employed native speakers with perfect diction and digitized each word with precision.. .11 you're just starting to learn a foreign language, the Audio Gallery series is indispensable as a learning tool ...if you're planning a trip abroad, a good phrasebook and the appropriate Audio Gallery title will give you everything you need to know to survive in the language. I highly recommend the whole series." .info magazine

After a few more drills she tried again and got 87%. That really got me excited about the program ... The use of oral and aural concepts was pedagogically superior." Valley City, ND
