Yes! We’ll be showing instructional videos for pronunciation within the app. These are actually the same ones we’ve been using for our existing pronunciation trainers, just with new visuals that are cleaner and clearer.
In this beta, you’ll be able to watch those videos from the Home screen:
When the app starts in your chosen language, it will detect if any of the videos have been played. If not, it will automatically check if there are any videos that still need to be played.
If it finds a video that hasn’t been played yet, it will prompt you asking you if you wish to watch the video now or later.
If you choose yes, the video launches and you can watch!
When the video finishes, the app will check if there is a next video in the series. If yes, it will once again ask you if you wish to continue, otherwise it will exit the video playing mode and flag the video as having been played.
The app will not ask you again to play videos you have not already seen, until the app restarts (think of a phone reboot, or a cache clean) and after you have viewed all videos the prompt will not show up again.
In a later version, the videos will show up in a brand new ‘Learn Pronunciation’ tab, which will be more intuitive than our current setup. Stay tuned!
