A nice feature of this resource is that you can export your story to Kindle for a small fee (approx $10). You be able to read your ebook on your Kindle, or sell it through Amazon. The ebook reads like a normal Kindle ebook, except that choices are included using hyperlinks.

I can see many possibilities for use in enhancing ELA writing skills!

Alfredo Calderon's curator insight, December 20, 2012 9:42 AM

TalkTyper provides an excellent Speech to Text (STT) service absolutely free. It makes voice dictation freely available to "the rest of us", so that anyone with a computer can use it.

 

But it's not the only option. Unfortunately, most others are not free, or you have to have a special device, like an Android phone, an iPhone, or an iPad to use them. With TalkTyper, all you need is a computer and the free Chrome browser. Related browsers, such as Chromium also work. Want to take TalkTyper with you? Then check out the portable version of Google Chrome at PortableApps, or Chromium at the Chromium Portable project.

Any business person knows that's it's often quite difficult to find good royalty-free images to use on a business website. Pixabay is a great resource. Just been through it briefly and I've already downloaded 2 or 3 images. No attribution and I'm quite happy with the creative commons licensing too: http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/deed.en ;
