Klettres.png KLettres aims to help to learn the alphabet and then to read some syllables in different languages.

It is part of the KDE Education Project.

KLettres welcome.png

It is meant to help learning the very first sounds of a new language, for children or for adults.

Choose the language using the Languages menu. Currently available are:

Czech Brazilian Portuguese Danish Dutch
English French German Hebrew
Italian Kannada Hindi Romanized Low Saxon
Luganda Spanish Slovak Telugu

A toolbar with the special characters per language is provided if you don't have the correct country keyboard or the keyboard layout to be able to display correctly the accented letters.


  • KLettres has four levels which can be changed via a Levels drop down box or the Level menu:
    • Level 1: the letter is displayed and the user hears it.
    • Level 2: the letter is not displayed, the user only hears it.
    • Level 3: the syllable is displayed and the user hears it.
    • Level 4: the syllable is not displayed, the user only hears it.
  • You can also choose the mode (kid or grown-up) via the colored buttons on the toolbar and KLettres will keep your settings and restore them the next time you play.
  • You can use the game to learn the alphabet in other languages. They are sixteen languages available at the moment. The program will detect which languages are present and enable them.
  • You will also be able to easily download other languages via the Get New Stuff dialog (3 clicks and your data will be installed).

Configure The Settings menu allows you the usual KDE settings. You can also change the font that displays the letter/syllable as in some distributions, the default big font is quite ugly! Furthermore, languages as Czech or Slovak might need a font as Arial for example to display the accented characters properly.
