Mobile computing is a high interest topic in computer science today. The Drake University Virtual Language Studies is taking advantage of this trend by developing an iPad application. The application, “Sound Reading,” is designed to assist with foreign language listening and speaking comprehension. To accomplish this, it allows a fluent speaker or instructor to create an audio recording and share it with other language learners. Many features are implemented, including audio recording and playback, dynamic text manipulation, Bluetooth data transfer, and server connectivity. Sound Reading was developed using Apple’s integrated development environment, Xcode, and the code was written in the Objective-C language. The app is currently being finalized and will be submitted to the iOS App Store upon completion.
