SingersBabelTM offers tools to help singers learn the meaning and pronunciation of texts in foreign languages, as found in art songs, cantatas, oratorios and choral music. BabelGuidesTM of works contain MP4 videos in which a native speaker and sung-diction specialist recites the original text while the text, a word-for-word English translation, and a phonetic or IPA transcription scrolls by. A printable PDF of the Guide is included. The text is available in a poetic reading and a slow reading, and newer versions have one that alternates between poetic and slow, line by line. BabelGuidesTM are available for complete works or for individual movements from those works.

What’s the Value?

This version of the app removed the sound sets. The text on score promotions is not legible. SingersBabel, did you really not catch that white text against a white background doesn’t work?
If you’re not buying anything from the company, this app is useless to you.

Developer Response ,

Hi SMB767 - The SingersBabel app never had sound sets. You must be thinking of the former app called BabelSounds, which is no longer available. That being said, if you go to the website, and click on the Library Menu tab, you will see Repertoire, Sounds Sets, and Languages. The Sound Sets are available to everyone. Also, not sure what you mean about the "text on score promotions" as there are no score promotions on this app.

Complete unusable mess

Hi Schnickname - I don't know what you experienced. Could you be more specific? Are you sure you were trying to use the SingersBabel app? Or were you trying to use the former BabelSounds app, which is no longer available?
