  1. Retain filter for context sentences when reviewing flashcards by text.

    When I use the premium feature of reviewing just words for a particular text, it would be great if it only present context sentences from that text.

    So if I am specifically reviewing words from a Harry Potter book, I would like to only see context sentences from that book. I would still like to click the arrow to see context sentences from other sources, but one of the Harry Potter sentences should show first. Thanks.

    • Make it easier to add images in cards.

      In a similar way that the card edit screen automatically loads up an external dictionary, it would be nice to have it automatically look up the word in Google Images (maybe Giphy too). Ideally, you would be able to click on the image and add it to your card, rather than copying and pasting it. Thanks.

      • Fix the parsing of German quotation marks.

        Some German texts use the following quotation marks: » «. Often, when parsing the context sentence, it will grab the » that is part of a quote of the next sentence. It requires a lot of time to fix these dangling quotation marks at the end of sentences. Thanks.

        • Fix bug where the context sentence doesn't include text from the previous page.

          When using the reader in Readlang, if I click on a word in a sentence that spans two pages, the captured context sentence does not include words from the previous page. I end up having to delete these cards because an incomplete context sentence is not useful.

          • Option to highlight words without displaying their translations

            I would love to be able to highlight words I don't know without having their translations appear on screen. This would serve several functions:

            - The text would not rearrange itself everytime I click on a word, thus keeping proper formatting and allowing for more text to stay on the screen;

            - I could read through the text without being distracted by the translation, allowing me to note which words I am unsure of while still being able to consider their meaning through context, and pay more attention to the text as a whole.

            - Once I am done reading,…

              • YouTube Syncing in Text Format

                In addition to the interactive interface for syncing videos, it would be nice to be able to edit the syncing in text format as well. This would be more of a power user feature that would let users tweak the syncing by hand. What I really want is SRT format support (link to that feature request below), but if that is too hard, just exposing your native syncing format for users to edit by hand would allow for external tools to do the SRT. I figure this would be an easy feature from your perspective and lean on the community…

                  I tried the few fonts that are available but did not find a cyrillic font (russian) pleasant to look at.

                  • add a way to mark and sideline "leeches".

                    For words that I get wrong, say, 5 times, it would be nice to mark them as leeches and take them out of active flashcards. Then if I encounter that word again in text, I could reactivate it and it back in to active flashcards but with a new context sentence.

                        • use VNTokenizer for Vietnamese

                          Vietnamese separates syllables with spaces, so you have to use a tokenizer to find the words. As the beta version of Readlang currently stands, each syllable is considered a word and multi-syllabic words are considered phrases, which Readlang treats quite differently.

                          • Allow Highlighting with Showing Translation or Dictionary

                            During my first pass through an article, I like to just highlight the words I don't know, but not actually see the translations or the dictionary. In addition to the "Translations On" and "Translations Off (monolingual)" options, it would be nice if there was a "Highlight Only" mode. Perhaps this could also be implemented/presented as a "Don't open dictionary" option on the "Translations Off" mode.

                              • Days before order/display

                                Is it possible to order the words shown in the tabular display in order of days remaining to the next prompt (ascending or descending). And preferably to show the number of remaining days.

                                I find the "forgotten" words typically to be in the 20-50.day range, and would like to be able to select this group for re-testing

                                • Update default Korean dictionaries to Daum's small form factor

                                  The default Korean-English dictionary is Daum, but it uses the full size form factor, so doesn't fit well in the sidebar. However, they also have small form factor dictionary that looks a lot better and still has the same functionality. I know users can customize the dictionary, but I think this would be a better default:

                                  http://small.dic.daum.net/search.do?q={{query}}&dic=eng

                                  While you're at it, I'd also recommend changing the monolingual dictionary to their small form factor Korean-Korean dictionary. Not only is this more consistent with the other dictionary, but it also handles multiple words and particles and conjugations on words. The current default…

                                      • How about adding F. M. S. P.?

                                        Some words in certain languages have Feminine, Masculine, Singular, and plural versions of the same word.
                                        This makes flash cards a little difficult for languages such as Spanish when translating with English which doesn't have Feminine or Masculine terms.
                                        By adding F. S. the learner knows which form of the given word they are asking for.

                                        • Right single quote = Apostrophe

                                          Right now the index cards count

                                          U+2019 : RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK {single comma quotation mark}

                                          and

                                          U+0027 : APOSTROPHE {APL quote}

                                          as separate characters. For whatever reason, some of the books I've uploaded use U+2019 instead of U+0027 as apostrophes, so it gets really annoying to have to add a "correction" for every word that has an apostrophe.
