Major features

  • A new activity in the reading section that presents a set of image, text and voice to children and an exercise set around them. This includes about 1000 images and voices in English, Spanish, French, and Gaelic-Scottish. The images and voices come from the Art4Apps project, a big thanks to them for providing a such useful resource (under CC BY-SA). If you want to thanks Art4Apps for their hard work please consider making a donation on their site.
  • If you want to have a look at what this new activity is about, you can play it online.
  • A rework of many text related activities to support multigraph languages. This is driven by a team of Gaelic-Scottish users.
  • Added the font face use in GCompris in the skin configuration file. It is possible to select another font by manually changing it with one installed on your system. For example, In boards/skin/babytoy/skin.xml find the line "font id="gcompris/fontface" name="sans" and replace "sans" by "ruluko". Ruluko is a font provided by Google under the SIL Open Font License 1.1 designated to aid those learning to read. In the future selecting the font should be made available at the configuration level.
