I like the app-BUT…

We need a fix to add a couple things that are easy to add. There’s a way to report an incorrect pronunciation, even your own pronunciation. We need an edit button in our profile. Yes, the option is there initially, but an edit button (in our profile, to edit what we pronounced) would be perfect. There’s a thunderstorm right now-I can hear it in the background-I didn’t notice until I already hit send. I’d love to correct that. One other issue I’d like to address: I speak Laotian/Lao. It uses a completely different alphabet. It’s unclear how to properly enter the words/phrase if you're set to (for example) American English. Should you change your profile setting to Laotian? Should you enter the foreign phrase using the Latin Alphabet, for people whom seek the phrase, who are native English speakers? Should you type the word in the Lao alphabet and add an English transliteration? That would be helpful. Laotian pronunciation isn’t easy to find (it should be!). Translations aren’t difficult to find, however, pronunciation and transliteration (especially in the same place) are very rare to come by. It’s difficult to search a word/phrase if you don’t speak Lao, but in particular, if you don’t know the alphabet. If you are illiterate in Lao, it’s much easier to see the words written in the Latin alphabet. It would make it much easier understand the word being pronounced.

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!

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.
