Alef Beis Software Recommendations?


I am looking to find a good computer program with games to introduce my almost five year-old daughter to the nekudos and how to read Hebrew. I noticed that Its Time to Learn Alef Bet: Hebrew Alphabet and Vowels Trainer was highly rated but do not know anything about it or the myriad of other programs.

Could anyone recommend some software for this?

We actually have this program. It does let you choose nuach:
Sfard
Standard
Yeshivish
Yiddish
Chassidish

It's fairly easy to use, as well.

Hmm, interesting, what is the difference between

Standard
Yeshivish
Yiddish
Chassidish

???

What is "standard", and what is "chasidish"? What is "yeshivish" (i.e. there is also "balabatish"?) I wonder if creators of the disk realise how silly it sounds.

May be they meant different variants of pronouncing Alef-Beis and Nekudos, but in such case it should be called Polish/Litvish/Ukrainish etc. dialect. And not strangely "chasidish"/"standard" etc.

The styles I noted above are from the actual cd-rom. It is based on nusach and how one generally reads hebrew.

I just was curious what "standard" and other mean comparing one to another.
