TalkBank Tutorial Screencasts

These screencasts have been created by Dr. Davida Fromm. The links in the "Screencast" column are to videos on our website. These work well if you have a fast connection. For slower connections, or for connections outside of North America, the YouTube links in the second column may load more quickly.

If you are interested in creating versions of these screencasts in your local language, you may find these production instructions useful.

We also have a set of five screencasts designed specifically for SLPs.

You may also wish to look at some of the materials on the second page of screencasts describing these more specialized CLAN functions: SUGAR, CHAT2PHON, CHAT2ELAN, TEXTIN, SALTIN, gesture coding, utilities, and multiple videos.

The media and transcript resources used in these screencasts can all be download from this folder.
