  • Chat with you when you're bored or when you want an answer to a specific question (especially efficient for geography, history and science)
  • English and French versions are included. Note that on Vista, the speech recognition language is the same as the operating system one: so, if you have a german Vista OS for instance, speech recognition may not work properly. On XP, only English speech recognition is supported. In this case you can still use a French voice, but you will have to speak in English in order to control the software
