#Free Mobile demo - Washing hands instruction

Mar 18, 2020

Hi everyone,

All over the world, people in health care are working overtime to take care for the affected patients and diligent research is being done for a vaccine against this virus.

The coronavirus affects us all in one way or another. We (YOU and I) CAN’T sit back and simply WAIT for a vaccine. We ALL need to help and it starts with a simple thing like properly washing hands. 

That's why I designed this short instruction about properly washing your hands. I also included the source file for those who want to have a look behind the scene or better for those who want to translate it in their own language and share the word with people in their own country.


Please stay healthy and take good care of each other in these weird times.

Hi Paul,

Great work! I hope you don't mind, but I decided to enhance it a little. I have been wanting to figure out how to use Amazon Polly's text-to-speech neural technology for some time. This SL program seemed to be the perfect candidate for it.

So I added neural text-to-speech narration using Amazon Polly's Matthew. I was particularly interested in how I could use SSML to manage the narration. Use of SSML in the neural languages is fairly limited (yet). But you may notice that I was able to increase loudness and slow down speaking for some sections. 

I also took the liberty to add some animations and sounds to make it more game-like.

You can view the narrated version here. The enhanced StoryLine file can be downloaded from here.

Let me know what you think, and thanks for sharing.

Hi Everyone

Hope all of you are ok. I've adapted the Paul's version for kids in a French school in Canada. Somebody asked me two weeks ago among the community doing it. Here is my demo. Thanks to Paul Anders who's the author originally.  Have fun! I really did doing it.
