The Fabula Wizard

Fabula is an easy-to-use program which allows children and teachers to create their own bilingual, multimedia storybooks complete with digital photos.

Bilingual stories help children learn other languages by using words, sounds and pictures to explore the similarities and differences. Fabula can be used to create stories in any pair of languages, but the five nation team which worked to develop this package teachers, children, software engineers, translators and researchers is particularly interested in the lesser used languages of Europe, such as Welsh, Irish, Catalan, Basque and Frisian.

The Fabula software was created using Mozilla. The Maker is built upon the Editor and is used to create stories. The Reader is built on top of the Browser and is used for viewing the stories.

We had previously modified the Mozilla source code, but this has subsequently become unnessary. Instead, the program is written entirely in XUL and Javascript.
