Memrise is a wiki, so the audio is mostly supplied by users. It would be hugely appreciated if you could help with uploading more audio - all we ask is that it is native-speaker audio; the audio files will be there for everyone to hear, so it is important that they are correct. For uploading lots of audio at once, you can read the instructions here http://www.memrise.com/faq/audio-uploading/
Or you can do it one by one - please let me know and I can give you the permissions to be able to do that.
a possible problem--I just uploaded mp3s for the phrase 这件事. However, my recordings are in 3 pieces, one for each word, and when the program plays them back it only plays one of the words. Is there a way to make it play all three words when you click on the sound icon? This example is from Previous session
dmheikin American Folk Tale--Chicken Little aka Henny Penny. Thanks,
Great, I have given you the permissions to upload audio and to edit items now.
Those wordsets that you are creating look brilliant! Could you put the test of the Chicken LIttle story that you translated into the "description", so that we can all read it? That would be amazing!
One thing though - I notice that you have been creating items using the diacritic tone marks rather than using the numbers. This causes some trouble with the testing, because the program is not set up to work with the diacritic lines (because a lot of people have trouble entering them). COuld you possibly use the numbers for items that you add?
I'm afraid that if you upload three separate audio files, then it will play them as three separate audio files - because of the way that tones change when words are siad together, it is probably best to record the words all spoken together rather than adding three separate audio files anyway. Does that make sense? Shall I remove those audio files for you?
Best wishes and please let me know if I can do anything else to help,
Ben and Carl,
I see what you mean about the diacritics. I've tried on a couple words to change them to numbers but I got error messages saying the editing would be fixed soon. So I'll wait until I hear back about how to correct the diacritics to numbers.
About the audios. I am downloading them from another program, Arch Chinese, but I can only get separate character audios. I am also not sure how to delete the audios.
I put the Chinese text of my presentation in the description box. Hope that helps. I give the presentation tomorrow night to my class, along with slides of both stories.
I will try to get the audio recorded for you right away, and will delete the audio that is broken up. I will also edit the diacritics - in future you should be able to just paste in a list of the Chinese characters and find the right items in the wiki, which should make things much faster for you.
