At this time, it is not possible to add shared decks directly to your AnkiWeb account - they need to be added from the desktop then synchronized to AnkiWeb.
If you are having technical issues, you can ask the developper of Anki (he usually answers in a day):
I like the variety and sheer number of sentences included. Let me note a few things, however:
1 The audio is apparently an 'auto-voice'. I don't know what the correct term for this is, but the pronunciation seems to be automatically generated for the sentences. I can see that this is necessary for such a large number of cards, but once in awhile this results in the auto-voice saying 'apostrophe' for an apostrophe. In other words, for 'μ' αφήνεις' you will hear "μ-apostrophe-αφήνεις". Funny, yes, but distracting.
2 The sentences use the name 'Tom' a lot. This is not a standard Greek name, and the auto-voice doesn't always handle it very well.
3 In general the auto-voice is good, but occasionally the sentence rhythm is a bit unnatural, and hard to understand.
(Added): I've been using this deck for about a month now, and have made some modifications. As I mentioned above, the name 'Tom' is used alot, along with 'Mary'. There are a large number of sentences like 'Tom is singing. Tom is whistling. Tom is coughing.' and so on. I have been gradually changing 'Tom' to a standard Greek proper name, or something else like 'the child', 'the king', 'the greengrocer', etc.
However, my main caveat is now this: there are many sentences like 'Tom tried to kill Mary', 'Tom killed Mary', 'Tom was detained by the police', and even (I am not making this up) 'Tom beat Mary with a baseball bat.' Tom seems to get into a lot of trouble, and I feel my time would be better spent on other kinds of sentences.
Still, lots of stuff here.
I've been looking for a good Anki deck for learning Greek with audio. Finally I found it here. Amazing job, congratulations! The senteces are short, maybe too short (at the begining at least), which makes them a bit harder to remember than if they were in a context of a bit lenghty sentences, but overall that's ok.
I have one caveat however: the names of audio files are very long and it causes problems with downloading the audio part of deck into a mobile phone (Android) with an SD card inside, formatted in Fat, a format, which has its limitations as to the number of files to be placed in one folder. And this number is also related to the lenght of the files' names. The longer they are, the less files you can put in a Fat32 folder. So, if I have 3 or 4 other decks with audio, I cannot add this Greek deck to my phone so that audio would be working (the deck is working but audio is not). Manually transferring audio files from a computer doesn't work either. And I don't know how to solve the problem. Any suggestions?
