The Singing Torah software enables B’nei Mitzvah students to continue to learn between lessons with their own cantor or rabbi. The Singing Torah serves pulpit cantors by helping both gifted and special needs children, who wish to delve deeper or need more time to match their peers. Singing Torah enables students to select specific words and hear them again, or to learn by trope families, or to learn words selected according to trope families from the voice of their synagogue’s cantor. Singing Torah software can preserve diversity of practice by enabling teaching with the natural and familiar voice of the child’s own cantor, using patented technology in speech recognition in cantillated Biblical Hebrew.
