Hi, I was just wondering when will there be a "fix mistake" button for "listen and type" questions? It's really wonderful how you can now fix mistakes and gain back half a heart.

Why I mainly want it, is because sometimes I might type too fast for the audio questions and will have a small typo that I wish I could fix. I hope this will get implemented. Is there any idea when this will be added?

EDIT: This discussion might not apply to some people because not everyone has the "fix mistakes" option.

So far not everyone has the fix mistakes option, meaning that they are still testing it. My best guess is that they would not add them additional functionality before they role it out to everyone. My personal opinion would be that correcting mistakes for MC questions MIGHT be counterproductive because these are already so easy to guess if you are not sure, and if one option drops out, guessing is even easier. Of course if you have self restraint and skip a question rather than guessing that is fine, but it might have a negative effect on learning for others. But that is just MHO. :)

Oh, they don't? Oh, ok, now, I see what you mean... yeah, now to think of it, I don't think a "fix mistake" button will help with the multiple choice questions, I'll change that part then. Okay, thanks for the reply, it now makes a lot more sense :)

Yeah I would like this option added, especially in the French section.
