Auto Highlight Words As You Read

March 17, 2015

Context is key when learning language. Wouldn’t it be nice to access previous contexts you’ve seen a word in every time you encounter it in a new text?

Based on popular demand, I’ve added the ability to auto-highlight words you’ve previously translated as they appear in new texts. Clicking on any of these underlined words will trigger a pop up showing the translation along with previous contexts.

From here you can:

To activate this feature, open the reader sidebar (the little ☰ in the top right corner), select the “AA” tab and enable the Ready to Learn (recommended) option.

This is currently only available within the Readlang reader interface, not the Web Reader. If you would like to see it on the Web Reader, or have another feature you’d like to see on Readlang, please add it to the feedback forum. A highly voted request is a sure-fire way to get my attention.
