BLOG AVATARS


Try using animated characters and avatars speaking instead of just text. We have tried the FREE ($200 for 5 years) MARVIN programme and an avatar site called VOKI. http://www.voki.com The voki avatar limits you to only a few lines but the voice is much better than the Microsoft voices.

Bubble share
There are various programmes which will allow you to create a photo album to share online. BubbleShare allows you to take your album one step further and present your photos as a slide show. Within minutes, you can create a slide show small enough to email to friends, or embed in your blog, wiki or web page.

The process is simple: just create an account (it's free!), click on 'create a new album', give your album a a name, then upload the photos you have saved from your digital camera. You will then be able to present your photos in a slide show, and there are several different formats available. The process is quick and easy to get the hang of ... so experiment and have some fun!
