Audio recording of German vocabulary
I find that remembering the sound of words, which almost acts like a tape recording playing in my brain, is very helpful in my remembering vocabulary words and gender. Ideally, I would like to play a list of vocabulary words on continual loop while doing other things. That being said, does anybody know of recordings that are clear and include gender. I looked on Itunes, but did not see anything.
There are two mp3 downloads at the bottom, one in EN + GE, each sentence spoken in EN first, then twice in German, the other GE only.
I would rather download the mp3 to use it with my usual media player than using the app (Android), because the app did only play one chapter at a time when I last checked. The app has some other useful features...
Hello. Are you a linux user? If so you can use a voice synthesizer software like Festival and MBROLA type voice files, whose quality is very good. Then you prepare a text file of the words you want to read, feed it to the Festival synthesizer and have the output written to a sound file, which you can play in a loop.
On the subject of audio recordings, I found a very cool program at http://people.ds.cam.ac.uk/ssb22/gradint/ that lets you make a pimsleur like program with your own vocabulary words. Unfortunately, the directions are cryptic and I have yet to figure out how to make it work properly. Someone more computer savvy might have more luck.
Very interesinting, I'll definetely look into it. From what I see, it uses python and espeak- tools similar to those I mentioned above
My big complaint was that the computer generated audio was very bad, and I could not figure out how to change it. Please let me know if you do. Thanks.
Bad in what way? You mean the computer synthesized voice is too robotic or something? What language are you trying to use this on?
