They say a picture speaks a thousand words - our pictures speak a thousand languages

italk library specialise in helping our clients communicate with culturally and linguistically diverse communities by transforming information into story form and making it freely available on this website, and beyond.

We collaborate with clients in the private and public sectors, creating learning opportunities by integrating traditional storytelling and modern technology.

We work with local language speakers to develop stories that are spoken in plain English and in the first languages of our target audiences.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “italklibrary encouraged Papunya youth to engage with educational stories. The youth played the stories so often they learned the words and chanted them along with the computer. The user friendly interface and it's ability to produce spoken language gives a major advantage to training in the remote community context.”
    – Blair McFarland, CAYLUS manager
  • “Alice Springs Public Library is thrilled to have the italk software. This program will be fantastic at improving literacy skills both in language and in English, as well as creating
    opportunities for improving computer literacy.”
    – Georgina Davison, Manager, Library Services, Alice Springs Public Library
  • “The italk concept is novel as it was the first to combine traditional storytelling with modern technology to create a unique two-way communication to transcend the barriers of language, culture and education.”
    – Ken Harkin, Executive Officer, NT Research and Innovation Board, Department of Business and Employment, Northern Territory Government
  • "I love the easy to use format, and am completely blown away by the enthusiasm of my kindy kids (aged 4 to 5) for learning the words...I'm so glad we can hear them as they should sound, before we try them out ourselves! italk is really appealing to the kids, and the software is super easy to use."
    – Jacqui Turner, Pre-School Teacher, NSW
  • "I will definitely be sharing and spreading the word of italk here because it is a great software that is very user friendly."
