Latest issues

  • (2019-01-08, v:2.0.0) Pablo Guijarro: The Howjsay URL opened seems to be wrong
    When a word is selected and the Pronounce option in the contextual menu is clicked, a new tab is opened with URL https://howjsay.com/?word=XXXXX (XXXXX = whatever word). That page does not show the pronunciation of the word, it looks like the right URL should include "search" in the path, like this: https://howjsay.com/search?word=XXXXX It would good to see this fixed anytime soon. Thanks.
  • (2018-10-06, v:2.0.0) Teddy Mahar: Can we have the original site back please....
    Hello, I would like to say "thank you!" for creating the howjsay.com web page (the original interface). It has always been my go to place for the proper pronunciation of tricky words. The thing I liked most about the original site was that if I entered a word that was not in the extensive list, there would be a list of words that were close to what I had searched. I would spend up to a half an hour or more just listening to other words that looked interesting and then looking at their definitions, enriching my vocabulary and pronunciation skills. Now when entering a word that isn't found you are presented with a dead end - "Sorry no results found", more or less saying, "...you're done here, get out" :( I'm sorry to say the new stylizing of the site is a HUGE step backwards, there is no more random learning. It looks as though the site is now modeled for elementary children. The original site was awesome and encouraged learning of new words. I would like to make a plea to either bring back the original site format or offer it as an option for those that want to enrich their vocabulary and fatten their brains, please. Respectfully, Dr. Teddy M. Mahar
