We are excited to announce that we just released the option that allows to edit transcription of the words. Right now it is only available in our English phonetic translator.
The option allows you to do two things:
- add phonetic transcription to the words that cannot be converted
- update the transcription of the words that can already be converted
In the latter case, you will need to go to your account, click on “Customize my experience” and then turn on the option “I want to suggest changes in the transcription for the words that can already be converted – these changes will override the existing transcription”. By the way, if you do that the converter will be somewhat slower.
Note that in both cases, the new transcription will only be visible to yourself. We will add an option to see the transcriptions submitted by other users later.
The “edit transcription” option can be found on the section “Choose what you will see when you click the word” on the page with the converter itself.
It took us a lot of time to prepare this update. The main two reasons are:
- We first wanted to release the updated database with the pronunciations of words in British English.
- Approximately 70% of the code of our English converter (which is a LOT) had to be rewritten in order to be compatible with this editing option.
The “edit transcription” option is only available to the users with an active subscription.
