  1. offer an export field that uses Anki's cloze syntax in reverse

    Hi Steve,

    can you also add an third export fields using the Anki cloze format like

    Context (Anki cloze with reverse translation):
    {{c1::translation::original word}}

    for reverse learning because Anki cannot switch front and back for cloze cards.

    Many thanks in advance.

    • Running readlang on Microsoft Edge browser

      I seem to have trouble running readlang on Edge, where the translations appear over words. Is there a way to run it?

        • A list of webpages i have read using the web reader in my library

          Could there be a list of webpages i have read using the web reader in my library? I'd maybe like to go back to some of them and that would make it a bit easier.
          Thanks.

            • Having alternatives hidden in context.

              It would be nice to have alternatives to a word hidden in the context.
              Sometimes, I have a form of an adjective, e.g. "periculosus" (Latin) and in the context I use the form "periculosa", which I already added to the alternatives, but it isn't hidden.

              Of course I could just make a new card for every form, but then I would have 10 - 20 cards for every word.

              It would be nice if you add that.

              Thanks.

              • Open Word Reference without giving focus to the text entry box.

                It causes the on-screen keyboard to disply on my Android tablet and I am so tired of closing that thing every single time when all I want to do is see the definition of the selected word in the text, not enter a new word.

                      • Modify word definition when reading

                        Hello,

                        I'm wondering if when reading an article it is possible to change it's translation for a more appropriate one.

                        It is easy to have a look in the dictionnary for all meanings but I didn't find the way to select the denifition that suits the best for later on flash card work

                        Thanks
                        Nicolas

                        • jump to page # or percentage of text

                          I'm reading a long novel in ReadLang. I lost my place (50% in) by accidentally jumping ahead to 84%. It seems there is no way to go back or forwards other than one page at a time. The app needs a "jump to..." feature or slider like other eBook readers.

                          Also, ReadLang now thinks I have read 84% of this book which I can't change.

                          • Need the "reading" of the words highlighted too for japanese.

                            When I click on a word it only shows me the meaning, I can't see the reading of that word which is consisted with kanji easily. It would be so much easier and faster if we could see the reading along with meaning just by clicking on a word.

                            • Blackbar

                              The black bar at the bottom in flashcards bops up and down between each flash card. It is very distracting. It also doesn't sit at the fixed at the bottom of the screen. Also all the content fits into the page then it is just white space below the bar. It would be better if the black bar stayed stationary the bottom and as little of the page changed when moving though flash cards.

                                When I click something that take me to the next slide the black bar at the bottom of the screen moves up and down it is very annoying, It would be better if it were static or only appeared if I moved my cursor over it or if it was attached to the bottom of the screen and not the bottom of the cards interface in "/learn". It is a big enough distraction for me to lose interest in this application.

                                • Should build some app for android and enhance high frequency word training

                                  That's a great idea with flashcards, but brouser refreshes the page each time I try to look a word in some other page, so all my progress disappears. Also it would be great to learn words with exact frequency only. For example, button for repeat only 7500 high freq words. Other words would be trained by guessing from the context.
                                  I would definetly pay for the service that simply remembers previous state and have smart SRS.

                                    Your progress in the flashcards should be remembered if you are logged in. Readlang uses a SRS to schedule words – you’ll see a summary of when they are next scheduled after completing a flashcard session.

                                    Readlang prioritizes the most frequent words of those that you have translated based on a word frequency list of the top 50,000 words (assuming your learning language is not in beta mode).

                                    If you want to browse when in the middle of a flashcard session, I recommend simply opening another tab.

                                    Hope this helps. If I misunderstood your question please let me know.

                                    • Could readers turn on or off the synchronizing brown marker on Youtube videos (some students will love it, others find it distracting)

                                      Make it so readers can turn on or off the synchronizing, brown highlighter on Youtube videos. Then my students who find it really distracting could turn it off (and turn it on if they get lost and need temporary help finding their place) but students who love it can keep the moving highlighter.

                                        You have left! (?) (thinking…)

                                        Thanks for the suggestion.

                                        Have you tried this with your students yet? If so, roughly how many found it distracting?

                                        I don’t have much time to alter Readlang at the moment and will only add more options like this if it benefits a lot of users.

                                      • to add the possibility to import movie subtitles, e.g. in the srt format.

                                        Since subtitles to movies are available online for various languages it would be good to consider them seriously here as a useful source. It is indeed possible even now to import text subtitles, however, it would be nice to see only the text on the screen and not the time marks. It would be also useful to have the possibility to import subtitle for two languages (one you know and one you learn), and see the two at the same screen, one by one.

                                        And, a native Android application would be nice...

                                          if there's not a filter already somewhere, developing an option to filter read content would be helpful to user. I keep seeing the content I already worked on all the time and the only way to keep track of what I did is to "love" them so they have a mark.
