Brilliant. Simply put. It would be cool to integrate some of your own sounds instead of all those annoying Mac OS X beeps and dings.

Thank you very very very much for this wonderful little app. Under Leopard however, there are several shortcuts my 18 mo old found quickly, like Spaces and enabling certain universal access items, but the fix was simple, just disable all the items under "Keyboard Shortcuts" in "Keyboard & Mouse" and disable "Spaces" and viola! Thank you again.

My 13 month found a way to exit it as well: ctrl-esc. I'm not sure what this is a shortcut for but it exits AlphaBaby every time.

Otherwise, she LOVES this program. She even likes to use the mouse and draw trails of stars all over the screen.

Thanks for a great program!

Many thanks for this fine application.

My 2 yrs daughter has spent hours on it viewing photos and learning colors, shapes, numbers and letters.

Thanks a lot for making AlphaBaby and for giving it for free...

It works without problems for me, I like the individual options (let it speek with own voice, etc.) and the only thing I would like to see added is an "interactive" option with simple mouse click "games".

But again, very use- and helpful as it is and a lot of fun for my baby.

Hmm - looks interesting! I was gearing myself up to try to do something similar, but I think you may have saved me the time (and made it a good cooler than i would have).

The baby's currently in bed, so I can't give it the acid test, but will try that tomorrow and see how it pans out!
