The audio doesn’t match the text
Thanks for noting this. In cases like this it’s actually best to contact the uploader of the lesson to let them know, that way they can fix any problems in the lesson
So let me get this straight - it’s my responsibility to make sure the audio in the lesson matches the text?
My understanding is that it’s the uploader’s responsibility to ensure this. My suggestion above is just a streamlined process, since in the end the uploader needs to be alerted so contacting them directly helps eliminate the middle-man. All we can do is pull the lesson (which I’ve done) so that the uploader can fix the issues then reshare the updated lesson. I hope that makes sense!

Yes. You got it straight.
There may be more lessons in the collection that have this problem and the best solution is for you to contact the provider. We do not control the content which is constantly uploaded in all of our 20 languages. When a learner finds a problem, the best solution is for the learner to directly contact the provider, who is just one click away. If the lessons is of poor quality, on the other hand, and this is signaled to us, we will delete it.
I might add that content providers do a great service to our community, making vast quantities of content available to our members free of charge.
Shigeharu in particular has provided vast numbers of great lessons in French, Japanese and Chinese, if I am not mistaken. There could be the odd problem here or there, and there may the odd link to a sound file that gets cut after a while. I am sure that Shigeharu is only too happy to fix things.
I’m sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.
I had just uploaded another audio file when I was at office the day before yesterday. Unfortunately, at that time, I was not able to check it with my old computer due to a certain restriction. So I tried to listen to the audio file with my own iPhone while going out during a break. I thought it was a correct audio file then.

I am terribly sorry for some lessons including some wrong Chinese characters. I will change their status until I check up them.
Shigeharu, we value your great contribution to LingQ and to ur Library and the odd lesson with a few problems is a minor problem in comparison. Thank you very much for all your effort.
