Again, great app and website. I have just a couple of feature suggestions.


  1. It would be nice if it would remember my page number when reading across multiple devices.
  2. Text-to-Speech would be nice for the reading tool. I'd like to markup the current page and then listen to the whole page.

I'll bring up remembering page number across devices, but I think we discussed this previously and found it to be too difficult to implement. Regarding text to speech - you are aware that we have it for individual words/phrases, and are just requesting something like a TTS button for whole pages, right?

Yes, it would be nice for whole pages. Right now, I just go back and listen to the whole article in Edge.

Hi Jacob, just a quick update/some questions on your items in work.

1) Remembering page number across devices is tricky because the number of words per page changes. We can make the bookmarked word always be in the current page - would that help?

2) Regarding TTS for a whole page - is this for passages that have no audio? Or is it just because it's easier than trying to play the recording for a specific page using the playback bar? We're just trying to see the value of adding this feature.

3) We are still working on the Thai rendering issue in the native app. We would like to delay fixing the mobile browser definition issue, so that we can concentrate our resources on the app. Is that a game-changer for you?

1. Yes, jumping to the bookmark would solve the problem.

2. Mostly for passages without audio, since I prefer hearing the native speaker when available. 

3. That is not a problem. The mobile browser still works, it is just a little clunky to have to click on another word to get rid of the box, so I've been doing most of my reading on my tablet or desktop browser. 


Thanks for your follow-up.

I noticed a couple of small bugs. 


On the website when I try to switch from single page to multi-page view. I have to open and close the menu twice for the change to take effect.

On the mobile website it shows the "Login" button at the top of the page when I first open it, which is a bit confusing because I am already logged in when I click on the reading tool.


Also, TTS is missing for the vocabulary review section on the website, but is present in the Android app.


Keep up the great work. I recommend this app to everyone I meet if they are trying to learn a new language.
