Xtranormal – not just in English!

November 4th, 2009 · 6 Comments · Content- Foreign Language

Did you know Xtranormal speaks Spanish? You would know if you are in Rose Caubet’s 7th grade World Language class.  Her students recently completed videos- they created the scripts (punctuation is very important), selected their characters- well, see for yourself below.  Her class used the text to speech features in this application. Special thanks to JS and NB for Raul y Nora and to AK for Leonardo.

    I really enjoyed watching these videos. I understood most of the content and it was great to see the students’ create a dialogue in Spanish using the xtranormal characters. Great work!

    These are great! I can’t seem to get Xtranormal to work in anything other than English or French. How did you get this to work? Thanks!

    To get the voice in Spanish, you need to do two things:1) Select the Spanish voice option and 2) make sure your spelling absolutely correct- this includes any accent marks.

    Sorry to bring this old topic again, but where is the Spanish voice option? I can’t find it and I’m in a rush =(

  • Ms. De Santis

    For the Spanish voice,
    1. Select the actors, where it says Give Your Actors a voice- scroll down until you see Spanish female or male.
    2. Select that voice.
    3. Your spelling must be totally correct.
