This tool was developed within the framework of a cooperation agreement between the European Centre for Modern Languages and the European Commission


Principal function(s): Audio recording

Blabberize makes it possible "to speak" through a picture. Users can upload pictures and select any area of it to be set as the "mouth". This "mouth" moves and acts like a real mouth while the recorded voice is played. Evaluation: A simple, user-friendly, creative, and fun-to-use tool. Teachers can use Blabberize to encourage students to speak since it may be less threatening and more fun to speak through a cartoon. With its creative visuals, this tool could be very engaging for primary and secondary school students. Very basic IT skills are required for its use.

Cost: Free without registration + paid options
