Hi there,

I'm pretty busy with work as well. So I haven't had a chance to update any keyboard/training files lately (even though I got quite a few mailed to me). Just forward the files to me and I'll try to do it on the weekend.

About the sounds: We plan to add a few sounds to the next version of KTouch, but that will probably version 2, coming out with KDE 4. Saying the letters is probably not a task for KTouch but instead for KLettres, as Anne-Marie pointed already out. I think KLettres is a program dedicated to learn the alphabeth.

However, I would welcome suggestions how to add some more fancy multimedia stuff to KTouch to make it more sexy and appealing in the next version.
