[Preview] AudioMarker - Learn Languages by Listening!

Download Development Preview!
* AudioMarker.zip (2196.34 kB - downloaded 27 times.)

AudioMarker has been designed from the ground up to be the ultimate Audio Language Learning tool (for "Listen and Repeat" style audio files).

At the core, there is the ability to be able to load a playlist, move between tracks, and store your translations (from your Native language into your chosen Foreign language).

There is also a handy Notepad area for you to make notes on what you're doing, and even translate text from within AudioMarker (via Google Translate).

Your translation lists can be saved and re-imported too!

The User Interface is a little clunky at the moment because I have been working on the functions, rather than the aesthetics :)

See the image below for a preview:

Upcoming Features:

• Entire app will be translatable into a language of your choice (so all the English text will change to whatever you want)
• A prettier User Interface
• Whatever else I think of between posting this, and getting back to the code!



How To Install The Development Preview:

When you download AudioMarker, you will be presented with a ZIP file.  Within extract the 4 files (see Fig 1) from the ZIP into a folder (make one for it, so you don't lose it).

Browse to the folder you have just created with the 4 files in it, and double-click AudioMarker.exe.

That's It!

---------------

Uninstalling AudioMarker:

Simply delete the 4 files and it will all be gone!

Ahhhh, this has absolutely nothing to do with "Finding" words in audio tracks - The audio tracks are learning resources (Listen and Repeat style).  The bottom left window is where you would type the native then the foreign phrase that you were just taught.  The timestamp is purely for reference (IE: If you think to yourself "hmm...how do you even pronounce that?" it gives you a way you can get back to it!)
OIC. I had probably not fully understood the requirements there, sorry.

I've made several small updates to AudioMarker over the past week, nothing major though as I decided to actually get back to learning the language rather than coding something to help me learn a language I wasn't learning  ;D

I'll release an update in a few days which has a few more nifty features to play with :D
