Not Forvo audio downloader0.17MB. Updated 2019-06-10. Supports both Anki 2.0.x and 2.1.x.
As add-ons are programs downloaded from the internet, they are potentially malicious. You should only download add-ons you trust.
To download this add-on, please copy and paste the following code into the desktop program:
If you were linked to this page from the internet, please open Anki on your computer, go to the Tools menu and then Add-ons>Browse & Install to paste in the code.

I tried to modify the file, as someone suggested below, in the folder addons21/download but it does work.
Can you fix it?
Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary: English is a great option. Any chance to fix the addon?
I added addon again but there is no aby button or anything in Anki.
self.url + urllib.urlencode(dict(query=field_data.word)))
self.url + urllib.urlencode(dict(query=field_data.word.encode('UTF-8'))))
Oh well, it was really damn good while it lasted. GJ!
I hope one day this can be updated to 2.1.
Absolutely useless. For now - i delete this piece...
it is licensed on the CC3.0, the same one of wikipedia.
can we get this addon working with forvo? thanks
and I would like to apologize on behalf of the troglodytes giving this addon 1 star because it 'doesnt work' - i think it is a very stupid thing to do, to rate something 1 star just because it didn't run, like the rednecks at Google Play's reviews section do
In your Add card screen, you should have Text, Kana, and Audio fields. Then, when you fill out Text (kanji word or kana) and Kana and select Download audio icon (Make sure your language code is ja) it will work perfectly
The Japanese audio does not work!
Remember that the field name has to be "Audio" for this addon to work correctly. Make sure you have a field with the name "Audio".
Plz help me ....!!!
this add on no longer download audio from Merriam Webster.
I was looking for a way to download from only one source and saw that many people have the same problem. Here is what you can do.
1. Find the audiodownload directory on your computer. On mine it was in c:\users\MY_USERNAME\Documents\Anki\addons\downloadaudio
2. In the "language.py" file on line 21 change the "default_audio_language_code" from "ja" to the language you are studying, in my case "de" for German
2.1 On Windowns if you need a tool to display the new lines in the file properly (notepad will not display them), you can use Notepad Plus Plus (https://notepad-plus-plus.org/)
3. Open the subfolder "downloaders" and then the file "__init__.py".
3.1 There are two sections you need to edit. Section 1 is between lines 20 and 35 and each line starts with "from ." The second section is from line 39 to line 54; the line immediately before it is "downloaders = [" and the line immediately after it is a closing bracket - "]"
3.2 In the first section, put a # in front of every line except the downloader you want to use. For example I left DudenDownloader for German.
3.3 Similarly, in the second section, put a # in front of every line except the one you want. Be careful NOT to put # in front of "downloaders = [" and "]".
4. You should be downloading the audio from only one source now!
at the bottom of the page I found the solution to my problem.
It doesn't seem to be finished, but it is the best plugin for adding audio for the moment. And also you can modify it to make it almost ideal.
My only problem is how time-consuming it is to enter audio for every card. (I only use this with the JapanesePod source, so it loads faster after removing the other sources.) I study on my phone, not on the desktop program. So I use the desktop anki browser and this addon to generate audio for my cards before putting them on my phone. But that involves clicking on a note, clicking on a field in the note, clicking the addon button, clicking "Ok," wait for it to find the audio, click "Ok" again, then go on to the next note. If there was a way to mass generate with only one or 2 clicks for each note to make sure it grabbed the correct audio, then I would find this more useful. But the way it is now, I'd rather use AwesomeTTS to generate audio for hundreds of cards, even though I would prefer a real voice recording instead of TTS voice.
Super helpful for getting audio for my Japanese vocabulary cards. Have to admit I miss it a bit when I am doing my Korean cards. Would it be possible to add support for Korean (maybe Naver or Daum dictionary would be possible)? Other than that, totally awesome! Keep up the great work.
It's definitely the most useful addon for learning languages.
Like many others I have been searching for a way to disable some of the many sources from which audio files are downloaded because it takes quite some time to disable them one by one in the download video.
Luckily the FAQ offer a simple solution:
Thank you and please keep up the good work!
I've been using this addon for more than a year and am very grateful for it! Many thanks to the author!!
However, I usually only download one audio file for a card, so I had to uncheck all the other files i didn't want, which was a bit inconvenient (also mentioned by another user here). Therefore I had a look at the addon code and found where to set the default download option to delete. Now I am even happier with this great addon :-D
If you are wondering how to do it yourself, just follow these steps:
1. Find the path Anki\addons\downloadaudio on your computer.
2. Open the file "download_entry.py" in the folder with an editor.
3. Change line 31 "self.action = Action.Add" to "self.action = Action.Delete"
4. Save the file and restart Anki.
I always add only one audio file to my cards but every time it finds a lot of audio files and offers me to add all of them. That is really boring and annoying because every time I have to unset (delete) a lot of the audio files to add only one that I really need. I'd like to use only one source, how can I disable all the other sources?
but can you just add the possibility to choose one or more audio's sources, because with my low internet connection it takes a while to load.
Can't believe I didn't use this earlier.
I ususally download already made decks and when the next Japanese books deck had no audio my success rate dropped a lot - turns out I'm the auditive type.
Only complaint is that there seems to be no shortcut to the download function when adding to an old deck (that I'm aware of - might be just me). I made myself a mouse macro for "ALT+B->+M->Enter" to speed up the process - really nice!
Thanks for the awesome work!
A lot of people, including myself, get a ton of pronounciations from Dict.cc, if we cannot find them on Duden.
Any chance you could add support for this huge resource, please?
It helps a lot with learing languages!
There is a small request for a feature.
For most of the words, like on the screenshot above, there are multiple sources for the prononciation. In most of the cases user needs only one file with prononciation, so he has to uncheck all options except for one. It is quite time consuming, when you add severl tens of words.
My proposal is to make some sort of priority list, so only one option with the highest priority would be checked on.
Priority lists would make it possible to skip this window at all. For example, i always prefer Duden to any other prononciation, if there is non then Beolingus or Wiktionary. So if the addon finds a file with the spelling on one of this sources, i don't need to see this window at all.
Thanks for your work, you are doing great job for users!
Brilliant plug-in and is amazing...only couple of things is would it be possible to limit the audio types to mp3 only or add an extra field so I know what audio type it is? Ogg files don't work on iphone. And can you modify it so the audio files are 'x' by default?
This is spectacularly useful if you're learning one of the supported languages. I used to download the files one by one… Thank you so much for your work!
Please consider adding a donation or flattr button somewhere.
The Cambridge dictionary would be a nice addition - e.g. http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/media/british/uk_pron/u/uks/uksta/ukstate022.mp3
(Yes, I know that you said you won't be adding any more English dictionaries – but the Cambridge one is one of the very best!)
In the case of the OALD, would it be possible to filter out either the UK or the US pronunciation? e.g. http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/media/english/uk_pron/a/ame/ameli/ameliorate__gb_1.mp3 vs http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/media/english/us_pron/a/ame/ameli/ameliorate__us_1.mp3
Another small thing: would there be a possibility to display the SOURCE directly as text in a separate column i.e. not only when one hovers over the link? In my case at least (Mac Yosemite), the icons are not showing, which, I gather, is due to the fact that I don't have Qt installed.
To the users asking for Forvo – have a look at the Manual! In short, use https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1211332804
Need forvo as it has hebrew. I can imagine this would be a great time saver.
A very good plugin! I use it for German. The only change I made in the code is to have all files default to "X" - meaning, I have to explicitly mark an audio file if I want it imported to the current card.
Really great, saves a ton of time.
This is great but please add forvo, it is one of the best sources for native audio for many languages out there.
This is a godsend! thank you very much. Please add the ability to select a default dictionary to download from.
I love this one sooo much, but Collins French Dictionary has just stopped working. It would be nice to hear audio files from Larousse.
Thank you so much for having created this add-on.
BUT the best would be to add theses links for British English : http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/british/
Then, would it be possible to choose by deflaut the dictionnary database from which I want to download my files. Or having codes (like "pt" for Portuguese or "fr" for French) like "mm" for McMillan, "ob" for Oxford British, "oa" for Oxford American, and the "pt", fr", "es" etc. for the google voice languages ?
Thanks a million again for your work !
Thank you. Please, could you add a search voiced words site - www.forvo.com
Brawa dla twórcy - bardzo pomocne przy nauce wymowy danego słowa !
There are many options, you can choose audio from different dictionaries or Google TTS as a last resort. I recommend...
Well done :)
This is an awesome plugin, perfect for my Japanese vocabulary decks.
Keep up the good work!
this addon is very useful, but since today audio files from japanesepod101 doesn't found,
maybe they'll have changed the url or something else.
I've open an issue on github because japanesepod audio files.
