Replay buttons on card

<10kB. Updated 2016-11-29.


Small add-on to add replay buttons on the card itself, the way AnkiDroid does it. This is mostly useful when you have more than one audio file on a card; with this you can replay individual files. See also the manual page. Report further problems at the support site or at github. Latest update (v 2.0.0): This now uses SVG instead of an image file: - In line with newer AnkiDroid versions - No maximum button size - Buttons can be styled with CSS (The old version is still available at github, now named

Does what it says and does it well. An essential add-on for anyone working with multiple audio samples per note.

Edit: Great update! Love the new SVG icon.

Very useful

This add on is amazing espescially if you have multiple video files on all of your cards. Thank you to the developer, highly recommend!

Exactly what I needed. Since I am using a Russian keyboard to type answers, the "R" button is not available, and it is always a fumble to switch keyboards to and fro.

So helpful

Very useful add-on for when more than one audio file is on a card side (e.g., different tenses and/or conjugations of one verb).

Also simplifies playing audio files for specific cards from the Anki browser for editorial purposes:
- click Preview in Anki browser (upper left)
- click the appropriate audio button (if needed, advance to the card side)
- click the appropriate audio button. Voila!

Before that I had to dig down into the folder to do this.

Nice job, thanks.

Essential addon

I've been needing something like this for ages. But even though I saw it a while ago in the addons library, I misunderstood it to be an addon that replays the entire card with all the audio in it.

What this addon does is display a play button for all non-empty [sound:] fields on the desktop version of Anki. (This feature is already included in AnkiMobile and Ankidroid.)

These fields are invisible, so once the addon is installed, you need to position these "invisible" fields so that the play buttons show up in the right places.

You might also want to change the deck options (either globally/default, or for individual decks by creating a separate profile). It's the dropdown list next to each deck in the "home" page of Anki (the list of decks).

I've switched off autoplay. If you're going to duplicate the audio in the answer card then you might also want to switch off "replay audio on question card when displaying answer card".

If you have more than one audio file (e.g. for sample sentences) then this is an essential add that works perfectly just out of the box.

Thank you.
