Quizlet uses advanced text-to-speech software for its audio, which allows you to hear your terms and defintions as you study. We support audio for 18 different languages and for text up to 300 characters in length.
Click on any term or definition on a setpage to activate audio. You can also click the speaker icon on the right.
The pronunciations are usually accurate, but click to report an incorrect pronunciation or problematic audio clip. *If you want to exclude certain content from audio, use parentheses and it will be ignored. For example, "cat (cat)" is spoken simply as "cat."
- Chinese (Simplified and Traditional)
- Greek (Modern)
Selecting the right language
If the audio sounds strange or incorrect, it may be simply that the flashcard set is tagged with the wrong language. To check, look at the language listed on the Info tab. If it's incorrect, you can change it on the Edit page if it's a set you've created.
Step 1: Check to see if Quizlet audio is enabled
If you hover over the term or definition text on the set page, is it clickable? If audio is enabled, you will be able to click it and see the text highlight in blue. If not, audio is not enabled.
This could be because you entered terms in a language we do not support, or because the text is too long (over 300 characters). Here is what 301 characters looks like:
Step 2: Check audio on your computer
Find out if you can get audio on any sets to work. Try U.S. State Capitals to see if audio works for you there. If audio works for you, but only on some sets or terms and not others, please click to report a term with bad audio. If the audio doesn't work on that set, try going directly to this audio test file. Step 3: Web Browser
- Use a web browser like Chrome, Safari, or Firefox and make sure it's up-to-date
Step 3: Check Flash
- Make sure you have the most updated version of Flash
- If you're using Flashblock or ClickToFlash, add Quizlet to its whitelist
- If you're on iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad) Flash is not required
