  1. Create a section for proof-reading and grammar check request

    Create a section for proof-reading and grammar check requests, so that native speakers can check texts or make suggestions. It could be similar to the review (Step 1) in the audio request section

  4. The first thing in my mind when I started is that you should really retire the out-of-date request. e.g, request from 2-3 years ago.

  6. Make a cell phone version/improve page functionality

    I found the website difficult to use on my phone. The review box for submitted text for instance would not scroll properly and it was hard to read the tiny text on my iPhone 6S screen.

    Also I had to click on links multiple times to get them to go through. There isn’t an obvious way to click back to see more requests once you’ve finished with one. Now I see the help others button at the top, the site is just not entirely user friendly in general. Great idea though.

  7. Way to find active users

    There should be a way to filter users by date of their posts, that is, to know those who are active and the ones who are not.

  9. transcribe your own audios/videos

    transcribe your own audios/videos

    This means that natives have less work to do.... and so more likely to help you..., so you can cut down the time needed for the native, so the native only needs to go through and check/correct your work, rather than type everything from scratch!

  12. 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?

    Ability to pause whilst recording. So that you can give your mouth a rest whilst working on a particularly long submission.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Record your own texts, not only requests

    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.

  18. Allow native speakers to hide certain requests from their queue

    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…

  19. Allow "priority" gigs. Have them both cost more credits and rewarded with more credit. I would gladly pay more for quick completion

    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.

  20. Award credits by word count rather than by recording.

    Hi! New user, love the idea--just a quick suggestion: As you know, people come here to place requests, and placing their requests requires credits. Since any recording is worth one credit--no lmatter how long or short--users will naturally do only low-word-count recordings. If credit were based on word count, say 50 words equals a credit, then this would motivate users to tackle the longer recordings. As things stand, I suspect that my four-hundred-word audio request may languish in the queue forever. Thanks!
