In LingQ for Android, it doesn’t matter whether I click in the
playback slowly button (turtle icon) or in the normal speed playback button (in sentence mode): The audio is played at the normal speed.
It is happening for all 3 languages I’ve tested: . English, Chinese and Arabic.
Do you have the latest app version installed?
Yes, I do. LingQ v5.5.24 (448)
Now that I noticed that the small icon is a rabbit instead of a turtle. Anyhow, both play audio at the same speed.
Try pressing and holding the button down to pull up the select options for the speed and see if that works:
I just noticed that if I press and hold the “rabbit” icon on LingQ Android app that this comes up:
Is this new?
For the last month or so I kept trying to hit the turtle button to slow the TTS/speech down, but it wouldn’t slow down.
Has this been a feature since then?
I just happened upon it today when I pressed and held the icon by accident.
I’m assuming iOS users can use this feature, too?
You need to keep your finger pressed on the rabbit icon in sentence mode to adjust the playback speed. I only found this out recently.
Wow, thanks jpp025 and SeoulMate! I had no idea. I had a long time ago noticed it was a rabbit, but didn’t think to try holding the button to get the different speeds and since I rarely use it I never bothered to ask!
Thanks for replying.
@jpp025 explained me this is that I’ve noticed.
Know that I reduced the audio speed, the icon became a turtle.
Hahaha! So I guess it’s both!
