I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Allow commenting from the request queue

    I listened to a recording in the queue tagged English, but it was Turkish. There was no way to say so. I clicked "transcribe" and suggested in the transcription box that they should resubmit with the correct setting. After submitting that, only THEN did the comments boxes appear.

    • Make it possible to search by Native Language and Language being learnt.

      For instance, I am learning Japanese and speak English so I should search for Japanese speakers who are learning English. That way we can do an exchange and I think the community would build faster.

        Give members the option to not receive email notifications, or perhaps have an option to have one email per day, or one per week.

        • Add another option to the "report this as abusive or offensive" like "report this as a problem/error". For example

          Add another option to the "report this as abusive or offensive" like "report this as a problem/error". For example today there was a video post: English / inglés nativo, inglés verdadero by martamoya1996 asking for English transcription. But the video has English subtitles, so asking someone else to transcribe it in English isn't needed. Not offensive or abusive but not really an appropriate request either but there is no way to report that easily.

          • Punish leechers.

            Highlight active users, helpful users, and handicap users who take help but don't transcribe themselves. Most of my postings haven't been transcribed, but there doesn't seem to be a way to improve the chances of them getting done.

            • organize queue by date

              Honestly it doesn't make sense that the first 20 pages of requests for translation into my language are from 2014 at best. And I by chance could find requests made this month. I think the the priority should go to the people who made the request (thus put it in order by date) and not to the people who may (or may not) browse through existing recordings. Not many people study my language so I'd really like to help those who do it and need my help right now. Those people who requested a translation 3 years age and already…

              • are allowed to download your audio requests

                I guess quite a few of us would like to download our own requests without paying additional credits for that. The point of the recording is for practice, and I guess I'm not alone in wanting to have the recording available on my mp3-player. Why pay more for a recording which was done for us?

                      • Establish groups to help people find language partners

                        I think it would be great to establish groups to help people find language partners (for Skype etc.) and maybe even small lessons created by users such as pronunciation guides/ do's don't etc. which can have audio created by the poster.

                        • Accept recordings from Windows 10 default Voice Recorder

                          It produces m4a

                          The default browser on W10 is Edge and Silverlight does not work on it.

                          As Win 10 is presumably the most common OS on new computers it would be good not to have to hunt around for software.

                              Many recordings I've search for the language I'm studying end up being bad quality of either tape or speaking (and I don't mean speaking fast, I was listening to some recordings in my native language too, and sometimes I could barely catch what they were saying!), which is very frustrating trying to find one I'd be satisfied with. If people would be able to vote on the quality/clarity of other's recordings, maybe there would be less people just mumbling through the text while earning credits for a bad recording. Or a catch of earning an extra credit, if your recording…

                                Double the cost of priority requests. Prioritize them in the que and/or make the reward greater for those who complete them.

                                Members like me who have time sensitive gigs would gladly pay more for quick turn around times.

                                  I know it's harsh and everybody is trying its best, but sometime (because of the microphone, regional accent, unusual pronunciation) the quality of the contribution is bad or does not match our expectations.
                                  We need to be able to block some people that prevents us to get answers from contributors we consider more valuable to us.

                                  Perhaps it should always be given a reason to let the other know what to correct (if it's microphone related for instance). It could be also limited to a fixed number of people (perhaps no more than…

                                    I would love to record more with my native language Finnish, but there is not much demand. If it would be possible to record less common languages without someone requesting it, I could record my own material, and help people searching for Finnish recordings in the future. It's also not easy to get credits, when there are not many requests.

                                      I am from Brazil and speak Portuguese. The problem I've come is that sometimes I already made a bunch of recordings and I have to skip a lot of them which asks specifically for European Portuguese. I don't record for these requests just so they can stay in the top of the queue for someone who is able to speak this variety of the language. But since there's no option to hide them, it ends cluttering my own queue of requests to record and I have to keep paying attention to which requests I ignored because they were from a…
