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.

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.


  • Four levels:
    • 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.
  • Two modes by age: kid and grown-up.
  • Time between typing the letters configurable. That helps younger children who are less experienced in typing.
  • Toolbar with special characters which are not on your keyboard.
  • Sixteen languages available at the moment. The program will detect which languages are present and enable them.
  • Distribution of additional languages via the Get New Stuff dialog (3 clicks and your data will be installed).
  • Three Different themes included. The themes are scalable to almost every size.


Kid theme
Desert theme
Savannah theme
Aqua theme
Settings menu, fonts
Download addition languages via Get new stuff


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.


If you want to contribute for your own language, please have a look here. Thank you in advance!
