Ratings and Reviews
Forvo is amazing, but a learner should be careful
My first language is Arabic, I’ve noticed a problem with some “category work” and “spelling small vowels -Harakat-“ and those problems could be fetal if you don’t notice. A collage could become a kidney! And vice versa, hundreds of words could be contaminated like that.
Otherwise, the service is incredibly useful, it helps me with my second language -English-, also with my hobby languages (Japanese, Korean) and also with any sudden interest in how a word is pronounced in any language.
Finally, about the app. I really find the design more comfortable than the website. But I have two complaint:
First being an able to record my reading for a word that has been recorded.
Second, I can’t report or edit a word writing wrong or easily confused between two meanings; sometimes I want to make both pronunciations and writing much clearer.
Such a scam!
‼️ DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ‼️
I stumbled across this app on google as I was trying to figure out how to pronounce a word in Nahuatl and couldn’t find anything. The website gave me an answer and so I figured I’d look up another word as I found it pretty helpful. I was then prompted to make an account so I could have access to the second word but after trying to start the account it told me my device wasn’t compatible and I needed to download the app. So, I go to the App Store and see the app costs $2.99 or so which I decided was worth it if I had access to all these pronunciations. I wont even get into the struggle of trying to make my account on the app (it took a while and I was very sure by then it was a scam) but after finally getting access to the app I looked up the word I was originally looking for and found no results. I, then, just for the fun of it decided to look up the word that had led me to the site and also couldn’t find any results. To rephrase, I couldnt find any results on the app that I paid for for a word I had looked up for free on their website and gotten a pronunciation for.
I did expect a bit more...
I have used the website for years and found immense value and help. I figured that I would buy the app for a slightly more convenient use. For $2.99, I did expect a lot more functionality and content than what is available. Definitely not worth the cost, in my opinion.
One problem that I have come across is that recording new words is hit or miss on the app, as maybe 30% of the words and phrases came out loud and clear enough to be worthwhile. All of these recordings were done one after another, in the same quiet environment, with the same microphone. I’ve made other recordings with this same mic with no issues, and have had 3-4 hour long conversations, again with no issues, before and after recording words for Forvo. Either the recording or the playback is having issues, but this problem only seems to exist on the Forvo app.
