The Cainteoir Engine is a library for reading and recording different document formats (ePub, HTML, MHT, RTF, email, and others) to various audio output formats (such as PulseAudio, WAV, and Ogg/Vorbis). It also provides the following command-line tools: cainteoir, a front-end to the Cainteoir text-to-speech library; metadata, which extracts metadata from documents to RDF tuples; and tagcloud, which generates tag clouds and tag cloud data.
Khronosphere is an audio recording tool. Its special feature is a buffer that keeps capturing audio even before the actual recording is started. This enables the user to prospectively catch any interesting sound that normally would have been lost. The buffer size is freely definable by the user. The software itself places no restrictions; the only limits are the resources of the host system. Khronosphere is very similar to and inspired by Jack Time Machine. They both have the same basic concept, but Khronosphere supports larger buffer sizes.
annoyme is a program that plays a sound effect every time you hit a key on your keyboard to give you the feeling you are using a real typewriter. This can be used to impress colleagues with your typing skills or just for sentimental reasons. It supports various sound input methods, as well as multiple output libraries like ALSA or AO. Most importantly, it is also possible to add more sound themes. Currently, only input for XEvIE (on an X Server) is supported.
PianoBooster is a program that teaches you how to play the piano as well as the basics of reading musical notation. PianoBooster can play any MIDI files, listens and reacts to what you are playing on a MIDI keyboard. It makes sight reading music fun. It can make use of the "light keyboard" or "guide lamp" feature found in some keyboards, such as Yamaha EZ-200, Casio LK 220, LK-300 TV, and LK-43. Keyboards with this feature can cause specific keys to glow. PianoBooster can use this feature to show beginners which keys to press at any given time, even if they can't read musical notation.
lilypond-kde4 is a base package for KDE 4.1 with basic tools to make working with the GNU LilyPond music typesetter in KDE 4 easier. It contains a KatePart indent script, icons for *.ly files, and a powerful textedit protocol handler. The textedit protocol handler opens the preferred editor application when you click on notes in the LilyPond PDF output, but it can also directly interact via D-Bus with specialized LilyPond editing applications. This package can be the foundation for different LilyPond editing applications for KDE 4.1. This package is not needed anymore in KDE 4.2.
