Speed talking

News ·

Have you ever used Speller and missed the words because the voice is too fast for you? Well, now you can slow down the speed of the voice!

When you're starting to learn a new language, it's often hard to understand the words when spoken at the speed of a native speaker. Recognizing this, we've added a slow**speed option to Speller which will speak at a s-l-o-w-e-r pace. As you get better at the words you're studying, you can switch back to the fast speed. Simply choose slow or fast** for the language that you're listening to---you can switch between the two speeds at any time during Speller.

Happy Studies!

    Just marvellous. Thank you.

    This is an excellent idea. I don't know what's the speed of the regular pace (as I've just registered a couple hours ago) but I know it's definitely going to help the studious minds trying to learn a new language by slowing down a bit.

    If it also applies to things such as vocabulary, it's still going to help if the studier didn't understand the speaker the first time.

    After shamefully being absent from Quizlet for quite a few months I was very happy to see this feature upon my return, as the spoken language is really what I need to learn. However, I'm learning Norwegian and there seems only to be a choice of English in the drop-down menu, which is a bit against the point, he he. I just wondered if you'll be expanding this feature to other languages soon, or if it is perhaps up to the card creator? I understand there are many languages and many different card sets to each of these languages, so it's not light work for you, but it'd be a very useful tool!

  9. marieskonto

    Oh, I should have read the other blog posts first...!

  10. JLearner

    This is spendid! I wanted it to slow down so I can learn French. Now it is!

    Sup. I love Quizlet and all that stuff. Who doesn't? (not me) So, Quizlet, to attract more attention, here's a tip: MAKE MUTLIPLAYER GAMES. I mean, everyone wants. And doesn't everyone get what everyone wants? Right Everyone? (Everyone's my bro)

  61. Marc/ cooldude5917

    good job

  62. lostinmymind

    Great idea I love it!

  63. Cow face

    I have a suggestion that for foreign languages you have a game or activity where we can pronounce the words and you can compare it to your computer... it might be frustrating to do but it would be really helpful.

  64. Maggie

    We need latin audioooooo Dx please quizlet administrators??

  65. jmoney


  66. sweet rite

  67. pizza and pie

    Is there slow speed for Chinese ? Thanks!

  70. mary

    i dont know how to use it ...i want to learn norweagian...

  71. lauren

    cool but i dont really know how to use it

  72. kevin

    that's helpful

  73. Dave R

    @lauren - If you're still having trouble, please write into feedback. It should be as simple as selecting the language and speed from the dropdown-box on the left when using speller (just make sure the set you're studying is using one of the 18 languages we support for audio)

  110. utfi

    OMQ! (Ohh my Quizlet) This is an amazing addition the epic awesomeness of easy studying QUIZLET! (. .)

  111. bocaj123

    Speller, to me, should not be called speller: it helps with other things besides speller, and it looks newer than other learning methods, like "Learn" and "Test." "Learn" and "Test" should look just as new as speller.

  112. Damon Clemens

    Sweet great job =0

  113. Damon Clemens

    great job =)>

  114. BoBo29

    Cool! Thanks for the help!

  115. James

    Well the only problem is your german... speller hardly pronounces the words properly. It's a great idea, but needs some refining

  116. shallea

    i love quizlet

  117. VocaloidFan5678

    Thank you! This really helps with new languages! ☺

  118. apembrook

    this helps but i feel like this upgrade for speed change needs to be added for flashcards... since some students learn at different paces i fell like the option for whether the audio is slow, medium, or fast should be offered to users to both plus AND REGULAR

  119. Dviranna1818 PLUS

    the option is only available in the computer and not in iPhone or ipad.. this is very annoying
