I am a teacher of English as a foriegn language. I am interested in developing some programmes to help me test my students' language ability. This includes the testing of the listening skill. So I need to add sound files. What programming language(s) do I have to learn in order to develop such a programme?
Thank you so much
Most languages can do that. C++ is always nice but since you just want to do a simple one VB might owkr though i have never tried it.
For things like that I would go with Visual Basic*shivers*. Easy to learn and fast to program.
You could do that with many languages but what you need to look into is APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). They are extensions to the basics of a programming language. Win32, DirectX, SDL, are all some good APIs to look into.
If you plan to do the programming and are not a programmer, then I would suggest using a language like Visual Basic, probably the quickest and easiest for you.
If you're a programmer, than go ahead and use Java, or use C++ with Win32 or DirectX, depending on how complicated things need to be.
Or buy one of the cheapo language apps.
