Suggestion for Audio Reproduction Speed

Hello, all! I am a new member at LingQ (been here for less than a month) and I’m really missing two features about the audio reproduction feature:

  1. A 1.25x option. There are many options for slower reproduction, but I can only choose between 1.5x and 2.0x if I want to hear it faster - and sometimes 1.5x is a bit too fast, while 1.0x is painstakingly slow. 1.25x would be perfect (it’s also how I mostly watch YouTube videos). Would this be feasible?
  2. A drop-down list for reproduction speed. I believe it is much better to choose your preferred speed right away from a drop down list than to have to go through each option (especially in my case, because I have to go through ALL of the options to get to 1.5x and sometimes I miss a word while I’m focused on that)

What do you all think? (:
Thanks a bunch for your attention and stay safe!


Thanks for your suggestions and feedback.

  1. 1.25x speed option is something users ask for a lot lately, so I’ll check with our team if we can make it part of our update to LingQ 5.0 version which is work in progress and should be released in the near future.
  2. We’ll see about this one, but probably not gonna happen to be honest. It’s not that easy to find space as we have other things included in audio player and we need to find room for everything. Drop-down require more space, so it will most likely remain a button. Should be too hard to tap on in few times to get to the speed you prefer. :slight_smile:

Thanks for your kind response!

yep, 10% increase would be awesome. 1.1x 1.2x …
