TTS after update cuts off on swipe

TTS after update cuts off on swipe

Postby manjade » Fri Aug 06, 2021 3:35 am

Hi,
originally, the TTS played in its entirety even once I had swiped to the next card
now, unfortunately, it cuts off when I swipe to the next card
is there a way of letting it play out even when I move to the next card?

Hi manjade,

This is a change in behavior. I don't remember exactly why I changed this, but I was trying to fix some other undesirable behavior. I figured that people would generally not need to continue hearing the sound when moving to the next card.

1) Are you using TTS or mp3 files?
2) Why do you want to continue hearing the sound from a prior card? Can you make an argument for why I should support this?

I am using TTS
I find it useful to hear the card whilst swiping: I can see the right answer when I flip and listen to the pronunciation whilst swiping ... otherwise I have to flip the card, wait for playback and then swipe. I know this does not sound like a big deal but it slows me down considerably. I guess what is more annoying is that it starts playback when I flip but then I swipe before it has finished and it then cuts off which makes me hesitate and go back to make sure I heard it correctly.
For me at least, playback while swiping is a great feature -- I didn't realise how useful it was until it disappeared.

Agreed. A new version should be available within a few days.
