    Author Click my name on this post



    Description
    I created AudioMarker by simply being a master of procrastination.  I got into learning Italian around November 2017 and me being me, decided to create some tools to help me (and subsequently spent weeks doing that instead of actually learning the language).  AudioMarker came out of the procrastination fire pit!.

    This software is designed to help those who use Audio learning tools (Things like Pimsleur) keep track of their learning progress and make lists of Native/Foreign words and phrases they have learned during their journey.

    Features

    • Create lists of Native/Foreign translations of words/phrases (which link to the current audio-track time and name if you have a file active during the session).
    • Translate to your chosen language directly from within the software. (Choose between Google Translate or DeepL Translate
    • Handly (albeit basic) notepad for making...notes.
    • YouTube (Pop-out Window) - Use YouTube fullscreen directly within AudioMarker
    • DeepL Translation added as an alternative to Google Translate
    • List of resources (Websites & Downloads) - List is editable but will come with a pre-installed selection (pre-installed list NOT added yet)
    • Export word lists as HTML
    • Export to XLS
        - Please Note:  When opening XLS files exported by AudioMarker, your spreadsheet software will ask you to choose the "separation method" - simply choose "tab" and it will all work smoothly from there.

    ---
    More features coming soon.

    Planned Features
    See post below this.

    Usage
    Installation
    Unzip to a folder you want to store it in.
    Run: AudioMarker.exe

    Using the Application
    Because I designed this as a learning tool, every feature within AudioMarker has "Hover-Over" tooltips, which means anything you're not sure of, just simply hover over it and you will get handy little information tidbits about what things do!

    Uninstallation
    Delete the folder with AudioMarker stuff in it.

    Tips
    None as yet.

    Known Issues
    Audio files MUST be reloaded into the software after opening.  (On my "to fix" list).
    Currently, you can only load one "set" of audio files at a time.  (You can load as many as you want, so long as you do them at the same time).  If you try to load more after an initial import, it will overwrite the current file list. (I am going to fix this).
    Translation list will add a random empty line at the end of the imported list.  I have absolutely no idea why it does this.  It causes 0 problems though so it's pretty much at the bottom of the "fix this" list.

    Known Issues (but FIXED ready for next release)

    Yeah I think I'm going to make everything able to be resized by the user so you can choose how big you want each area tbh.  At the moment it is just based on what I needed (when it was just for me), plus the top right logo area (which now I think about it, takes up FAR too much space and could be better used for other things)

    :)

    YouTube tab has been disabled for the moment as it was too small to be useful and I didn't get around to fixing that yet.

    It just occurred to me that I inadvertently bundled images of countries flags within the ZIP.  These files are not required anymore (They were for a feature I decided was utterly useless and subsequently removed) and will be removed on the next upload.  If you don't want them, they are safe to delete (they also account for about half the total file size).

    The folder is called "flags", which can be deleted entirely.

    If anybody has the faintest clue how the f**k to get that cloud player to actually WORK [actually play the audio] (C#, Cef.Sharp: Visual Studio Winforms)...I will love you forever.

    Update:
    Download moved to Google Drive due to increased file size (owing to Cef.Sharp inflating the number of files contained within the app).

    All features that showed as confirmed in the 2nd post have now been released.

    You access that by clicking top right, next to the "?"

    123.png

    It's not fully functional yet (I somehow forgot to actually include the ability to save/load those lists.  I'll be adding a list of learning resources at some stage - I'm considering how to do this properly though as there are so many languages and all my current lists are 100% based on Italian stuff lol.  Perhaps I should provide one list (Italian) and just allow people to share their own somehow.  Not sure yet.

    OK, Next version has Google and DeepL translations built into the main screen of the software.  At the moment, these tabs take a few seconds to activate but once they have been loaded, they are lightning fast.  I'm trying to speed up the initial loading (or make it obvious it's actually doing something) - hopefully, I'll have that done by the next update.

    New Features For Next Release

    • Export word list as XLS (Requires you to manually choose "tab spacing" when opening in spreadsheet software)
    • Export word list to HTML (All data will be exported into an automatically created HTML file with all the data showing in a table) - See image below for example output

    Bugs Fixed
    YouTube popout actually works without killing the entire program.

    hi Stephen
    just trying this on Windows 7

    Looks good --
    in the Insert .. phrase fields, I cannot:
    # cut or paste using the usual shortcuts
    # select all using Ctrl+A (I can use Shift+Hme from end of phrase, so not really bothered by this)

    Any chance you could get #1 there working?

    Not entirely sure why I didn't add this already :|

    ----

    As it turns out...it's refusing to work...this should be simple...But...annoyingly...when I get it working in one of the boxes...the other one stops working....give me a little while with this and I'll have it working by next release. :)
