A program for learning the alphabet. It has three levels of play from beginner, with full spoken instructions including the letter names and the phonic sound, to picking out the letters one by one against the clock. Capital letters option is also included. As in many of my educational programs, good work is rewarded with a certificate which can be printed out. Program includes an uninstall facility. Compressed file size - 3.09 MB.

On the opening screen you will find a Speaker Icon in the top left of the screen. When you first run Alphabet Soup, the audio help (me speaking basic instructions) is turned on. To turn this feature off, including when the program is run again, simply click on the Speaker Icon and it will be covered with a red cross. To turn audio help back on, just click it again.
Alphabet Soup is divided into 3 Levels. Level 1 is for beginners. It has audio instructions on how to play and for each question. Scoring is 10 points for each correct letter. Level 2 is for more advanced players and does not have the audio questions. Scoring is 20 points for each correct letter. Level 3 is similar to Level 2 except you play against the clock and score up to 40 points for each correct letter chosen depending on how quickly you play.
Each level has a soup bowl filled with alphabet soup. For those that don't know this type of soup, it is basically tomato with pasta letter shapes.
Next to the bowl is a soup spoon. To start the game you must click on the soup spoon and the soup will be stirred. This jumbles up the letters of the alphabet. When your mouse pointer turns to a flashing hand over the letters, you can click on them to pick them out of the soup. Correctly chosen letters will appear below the soup bowl.
Change the letters to uppercase by clicking the button under Grey Olltwit. You can change them back to lowercase letters at any time by clicking the same button. Click the Try A New Level button to take you back to the menu/titles screen to choose a new level.
When you make a score above 100 a Certificate scroll will appear on the left of each screen next to Grey Olltwit. Clicking it will take you to the Certificate screen where you can print out a certificate and/or save it for printing out at a later time. Also, in the top menu under Options you can move to the Certificate screen at any time, showing your progress so far. To save a certificate click on the Save button and enter a name for it in the dialogue window that appears. To open an old certificate click the Open button and choose your file from the browser window that appears. To move back to the Level you were on and a new game, click the Back button in the bottom left of the screen.
