This basic learning tool teaches kids how to count, but its crude design detracts from the fun. NetworkEasyNumbers' outdated but easy-to-follow interface provides three learning modes and two test modules. Numbers are displayed onscreen and spoken aloud, and accompanied by plain dots to aid in counting. The simple dots aren't the most engaging graphic element. NetworkEasyNumbers would benefit from fun images or other creative additions to its drab interface. Scores are displayed onscreen, but results can't be saved. Although the program claims to run with any media player, we could only hear sound using Windows Media Player. Preschool kids might be entertained for a while, but without fun graphics the program may not be long enough to justify the expense.
