    If the words have a typographical apostrophe ( ’ ) as it is in the case of a pdf that is online, then the application shows an error. I'd like to be able to read words with typographic apostrophes and not inside brackets like this: [I'm]

    Is it possible to turn off the sound of each word selected?

  • (2016-07-27, v:1.1) Tarık S: ɜː problem and length feature
    A very useful extension but it has two main problems 1) it shows us the schwa (ə) symbol in place of (ɜː) sound 2) there is no length (:) feature which is one of the key aspects of pronunciation.
