An additional extensive reading mode would be a nice addition to the reader options.
How I think this should work:
Instead of looking up words or choosing a translation for a word. The user marks known words as “known”. The remaining words turn into blank lingqs when paging.
- At my current level in my TL, of the new words I see that should be saved as lingqs I can usually guess the meaning because of how the word looks. No need to set a translation, but the word is not what I consider known and it is far from my active vocabulary. I also want it highlighted to sort of draw my attention a little bit.
- In my TL, the same words can show up in multiple forms. Most of the words don’t have user translations and the google translate suggestions are very unreliable. Many times I’ve had to the paste the same translation multiple times (5-10 times easily) in a single lesson. This can make reading very tedious. On desktop it is relatively easily to do quickly but not so much on mobile.
