One alternative is by default not select any game, and show a canvas
with cards with the games to select:
* Additions
* Letters
* Sounds
... and in the case Art4Apps is installed:
* English
* Haitian
* Français
* Spanish

If some of the languages is selected, show the second level
games as cards in the canvas (right now in the games palette)

(There are a class SvgCard that display a card with content)

In this way, the user should select a game to start.

Anyway, if a user select a game saved in the journal, these screens are
ignored and the game is opened.

I don't have time to work on this right now, but would accept patches.

> Hi all,
> Gonzalo Odiard came up with a really neat way to use the art4apps image
> library in Memorize. You match each image to its written version. It's a
> great way to practice a second language or introduce beginning readers to a
> first. Remember, Memorize has a text-to-speech engine so it can read the
> words out loud, too. Super-cool.
> We've done this the long way in Haiti before (kids take pictures of

> always been really enthusiastic about it.
> Problem is, the default thing that comes up when you launch a new instance
> of Memorize is math flashcards. So, everyone knows it as the "math
> activity."
> I'm currently putting together a literacy-focused build; we'd like to add
> a Memorize that opens with a word-picture demo to it.
> If anyone's available to help making the needed modifications to Memorize,
> please let me know. I have a feeling that others in the community will find
> this version of it useful. There are other places you can go to practice
> addition (+1 to TuxMath) but there aren't as many tools available for
> language learners.
