If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. To provide a print option

    I'd like to print out /or copy formatted/ the text with my new words highlighted, the printing of the selected words in a table would also be great.

    • Learn the difference between å, ä and a

      When I am trying to do Swedish your program seems to think these are all the same letters. They are not.

      For instance, Readlang gives the same definition for håll as for hall. These are two different words.

      If the A1 lessons are so wrong how can I trust anything more difficult.

      • Correct typos on your site

        This was written in the settings section:

        "a translation appears above each clicked word, and the dictinary shows additional translations into English"

        Notice anything wrong there. It doesn't give me a lot of confidence in your product when something that would be flagged in any spellchecker is left on your site.

            10 word review per day, isn't it too small?

            • option to re-order word list

              It would be helpful to be able to re-order the word list in chronological or reverse chronological (or alpha) order, so we could review the words in the order we first saw them in the text, or to reverse that order. On bank statements, for example, you can click the header of a date column to do this.

                You can actually do this from the Words page by changing the dropdown that says “Recently Modified” to either:

                “Oldest”: Chronological order
                “Recently Added”: Reverse chronological order

              • Have audio for text

                It will be useful to have audio playover option for certain texts in which audio is available. It can help with retention of new words.

                • add a group field for the flashcards

                  When I want to study the flashcards, they are grouped according to the website or article from which I added the words. It would be great if I could create my own groups, so that I could choose the flashcards I wanted to study, for example if I am reading an article or book that is not online. As it stands, I have only the choices mentioned or all of the words I have added.

                  • Make tracking text while watching a video by sentences, not by words.

                    It will be much more convenient.
                    One of the problems of tracking by words is that I have to put a lot of efforts for making good synchronising.

                      • Show image hint in the pop-up for an auto-highlight word while in read mode.

                        When the user clicks on an auto-highlighted word in read mode, it would be great if the pop-up showed the image hint (by the way, it is so awesome that GIFs work) that has been set up.

                        It may be incredibly useful to have in lieu of a translation in monolingual mode.

                          Make sync available on public videos. You may make this as option.

                              Would love it if we could (un)star words while in Flashcard mode.

                              Readlang rocks!

                                  I love ReadLang and have been using it to sharpen my own Spanish reading skills. I teach Latin to middle schoolers, and would love to have them use use ReadLang as a tool to read harder Latin texts. Any chance it will emerge from beta soon? Thanks! Rick Beyer

                                    The reason it is still in beta is that I don’t have a good word frequency list of Latin words. This is used to prioritize learning with flashcards and to attempt to judge the difficult of each text.

                                    It still might be useful to try using Readlang to read Latin yourself and if you think it’s helpful to recommend it to your students as it is.

                                    Make text tracking while watching video optionally. Add an option for this.
                                    It's sometimes very inconvenient because of bad synchronisation, and it takes a lot of time to sync it right.
                                    Also, the problem is that many public videos are badly synchronised. And nobody can fix this because the only author has the ability to sync.

                                    • 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.

                                      • toggle flash card creation or ask for confirmation before making one

                                        I've just discovered ReadLang a few days ago and love it. Beautiful job.

                                        I do find the automatic flash card creation feature very useful, but sometimes I want to turn it off to just practice reading and keep my word list tidy. I'm new to reading Spanish and tend to highlight a lot (for the translations). Most of what I highlight I don't want saved in my word list. Alternatively, I'd probably be happier if it asked me to confirm each time it wanted to create a flash card.

                                        Anyway, based on your last blog post I guess you're done…
