  1. Use Google Translate Audio for Portuguese

    The audio for Portuguese is different from Google Translate, and sometimes mispronounces, eg., ç is pronounced as /k/. The quality in G Translate is better: slower, brigher and clearer.

      I’m using the Microsoft Translate Speech API for this, which is actually better for Spanish pronunciation than Google Translate IMO. It’s a shame the Portugese isn’t so good.

      Unfortunately Google don’t provide an official API to allow other developers to use their text-to-speech service. I could look into other services. but I’m not prioritizing this for the time being.

        Thanks. Currently all articles are plain text only.

        Long term I’d like to include HTML markup to make things look prettier with headings, images, etc. But at the moment this isn’t a high priority to be honest.

        Editing existing documents in plain text is more likely to happen in the short term.

        • Make a page with stats

          It would be really neat to have a place where I can see stats on my vocabulary words: when I made a flashcard, how many times I've practiced it, how often I've gotten a word right/wrong recently, when it's due... etc. so I can get a better idea of my progress.

          • English to English translation

            Has it been implemented? i basically just want to learn new words, or keep phrases that I read. I would like to write one day, and that would be a great way to store useful words and phrases.

            • Please add a dictionary form to the flashcards

              For example I'm learning German. Nouns in German have one of three genders and to be able to use the word correctly, one has to know its gender. So when I'm learning words I need to learn their gender as well.

              • Purpose of Alert?

                Every time that I am reading an uploaded text in Readlang Library, I get the following alert partway through the text:

                Alert
                To use the Readlang Web Reader:
                1. Drag this "Readlang Web Reader" link to your bookmarks bar
                2. Browse to the page you want to read
                3. Click the "Readlang Web Reader" bookmark

                I already have the Green R button in the taskbar of my browser which I click on whenever I want to use it on a web page.

                I am using the Chromium browser on Ubuntu. I'd prefer not to see this alert. Is there some…

                • ReadLang on Google Translate page

                  If you set the Google Translate page to translate from your native language to your target language, enter a word or phrase, and then click on the ReadLang button, the target word or phrase works normally in ReadLang. But if you then change the input to GT, producing a new target language output, then the green line for ReadLang does not appear and Readlang does not work. If you refresh the page, ReadLang will then work with the new translated word or phrase.

                  The reason I like to use ReadLang in this way is to input words or expressions into…

                    As you’ve discovered, refreshing the page is the only way to get the Readlang clickable translations back after a page update at the moment. Fixing this would be quite complicated.

                    One alternative is to enter your words or phrases into the “Lookup” search box on the Words page (http://readlang.com) – this will show a translation which you can click to immediately add to your word list.

                    Hope that helps.
