Yeah, the language lab is the same, just a basic headset with mic, but it shouldn't be too difficult to change your voice if you're just doing females. Mmm, I downloaded a trial of Flash once, but it was really tough to figure out, and even after scouring dozens of tutorials I barely got the effect I wanted. Still, it would be fun to play around with, even though I prefer the end result of traditional animation. With WMM, though, it shouldn't be too hard to animate blinking and talking and such, especially if you imitate the Pokemon anime -- the animation is horribly basic. XD; Even that would be rather time consuming, though, so I would just opt for a slideshow, kind of like the storyboards shown in Disney making-of documentaries and deleted scenes.
