I really like the software, but my congregation likes my voice on CDs of Torah and Haftarah readings. What should I tell them to convince them to use TropeTrainer™ software?
TropeTrainer™ software is the most flexible and consistent way for a congregant to learn to read Torah. Consider the challenge if you are a soprano and your congregant is a baritone. TropeTrainer software can easily match the pitch and range of the studentís voice. What happens if you record the reading, and then the congregant wants it faster or slower? TropeTrainer software can be adjusted to the studentís preferred pace. And TropeTrainer software never gets laryngitis or catches a cold!
