    Language lab alternatives to sanako

    Hi,

    We currently use sanako lab 300 but has become useless without the hardware controller type thing...

    Are there any free audio solutions for sending mp3s to client PC, as a whole class or one to one.

    What do you use?

    I will watch this thread with interest. We too have (or had) Saneko software installed on a suite of computers in the languages building. It is no longer there as we rebuilt all computers from XP to Win7.

    Interested to see your post. I am looking at the same thing. Our MFL faculty have a 10 year old Lab 300 with Sanako version 9 running on Win XP which we support in house. The PCs now need replacing but to go to win7 or above needs some outlay on sanako software upgrade. The lab is only lightly used as an actual language lab, only a few teachers got to grips with it, except for the mass listening exams which it works well for. I too would like to look at alternative solutions before going down the upgrade path again. What are others using out there, are there any current recommended IP based systems ?

    We currently use lab 300 and our head of languages has decided to look at sanako study 1200. It's a complete client/server software solution.

    Just waiting on a price!! :-)

    We have Lab300 too. I believe it is still heavily used, but no longer see it day-to-day as I left a job directly supporting the Linguists to move to Science a few years back.

    Televic would be another one to look at, not had any direct experience of them though.

    We retired our Sanako after upgrading to Win 7 last summer as the upgrade price was substantial. Currently getting by with Audacity but obviously not the full functionality of a language suite. Shame the products such as Impero don't include this side of things too as that would mean one solution in stead of two.
