Very useful addon, I use because it has a big variety of voices in english, furthermore it more easy and fast to add audio with it.
I use the add-on intensively and I am happy to pay a small contribution for it for two main reasons
1) because I use a language that only Azure provides TTS for for the moment
2) it is much simpler than creating a free Azure account and get a key there... I tried and it was not a success...
I lack technical expertise and this add-on has made my life way simpler!!! It works wonder!
Used to be a great add-on, sadly it's not compatible with 2.1.35 anymore so I can't use it as I'm waiting for the Migaku team to update all of their add-ons... I even considered getting a paid subscription, but now I can't use the add-on at all.
The addon provides really high-quality translations and TTS generation.
I only wish it was still compatible with Anki 2.1.35. My other key add-ons still run on older versions, so I can't update yet... :(
This is a great add-on to Anki, especially the handy feature "auto audio to bulky vocabulary"
So easy to work with, highly recommend to anyone using Anki for language purposes
Some times, when i open the editor, this error appears:
Edit: Thanks, next time I'll report in github.
Hi, thank you so much for reporting this issue. I've created a ticket here https://github.com/lucwastiaux/anki-language-tools/issues/51 and i'll look into solving this as soon as possible.
Fantastic tool! I love how it works with 2.1.35 so I can still use Migaku extension for immersion practice.
Azure Neural and Google Wavenet voices sound so convincing. I'd say they sound far better than Siri. This is a well-made add-on with a clean website (thank you for not bombarding us with ads, lol). I plan to subscribe for a month soon and I intend to do that every other month just so my decks are completely voiced over.
Language tools changed how I learn English a lot. I use it to generate sound files for Front/Back/Sentences/Translation of Sentences.
Facilitates a lot making the flashcards
A revolution for language learnings.
For the past year as I have been learning Vietnamese, I have had to ask friends to record audio which I process with Audacity. What used to take 20 minutes can now be done with a few clicks. Set up was also easy and the instructions were clear. Highly recommended.
So easy to use and the voices are great.
Das ist ein super Tool. Großartige Unterstützung für das Erlernen von Sprachen.
Allerdings hatte ich vorerst einige Schwierigkeiten mit der Einrichtung. Sowohl die "Welt des Anki", als auch die Integration der Addons haben mich etwas dumm davor stehen/eher sitzen lassen. Mittlerweile werden vom Autor der Addons immer bessere Tutorials bereitgestellt. Vermutlich habe ich anfangs auch etwas zu kompliziert gedacht.
Wenn ich mir jetzt, nach der Installation und Integration beider Addons Language Tools und Awesome TTS, den Komfort und die einfache Handhabe anschaue, dann bin ich begeistert.
Die Qualität stimmt, wenn nun auch noch sowohl der Support als auch die weitere Entwicklung stimmen, bin ich in absehbarer Zeit ein Patreon-Abonnent. Insbesondere weil auch die Tarife angepasst wurden.
Viel Erfolg allen Nutzern und dem Autor bei der Betreuung und Weiterentwicklung!
Very useful add-on.
Currently not working since I updated to last version. It says my key is invalid which is not.
Anki desktop is 2.35
Error Code 401
--Already working, had to restart ANKI, re enter the key as well dunno..
Other than that it was an amazing add on
Hi, please get in touch with me email@example.com, we can sort out this issue.
Makes it easy to generate audio for Anki cards.
This addon has helped me streamline the process of creating language cards while supporting high quality TTS voices. Very pleased with it.
It simplifies a lot the process of creating new cards for language learners, which is normally a huge time-consuming task, that may otherwise stop you from learning new words. Great add-on and even better support!
Very useful add-on.
Simply amazing add-on! I use it almost every day, it makes it soo easy to create ~500 cards with fairly accurate translations and tex-to-speech on the fly. Before I became a Patreon (which is really worth it if you're a heavy language learner) it was extremely cumbersome to add translations and speech by myself and/or the robotic-voice quality kind of spoiled the experience. I completely recommend it!
Awesome add-on, so is the support.
Works great for what I wanted to do (Yomichan TTS integration).
These things should be free, but it's understandable that being so that it needs an api which is paid for many services one needs to buy the service. Would nevertheless be cool if someday this could be completely free. As a student of many languages, having good audios is essential if you can't travel to the country of the language you want to learn. I live in Argentina and paying for a monthly patreon subscription costs more than what I would make in a few days work. Congratulations on the effort in this addon. Hopefully it can me made free someday for everyone just as awesometts is now!
Hi, I understand your concern and thank you for your support. The issue is that the price of cloud TTS APIs such as Google / Azure / AWS prevent us from making this addon free. There are plenty of free resources available for those who are not able to get a subscription. Please get in touch with me firstname.lastname@example.org for any further questions.
A disgusting way to pay
I subscribe and pay, no Google TTS Key is provided, just a bundled patreon subscription, and no way to enter my own key.
Hi, wanted to find out whether you're still having a problem, could you get in touch with me email@example.com ? I'd like to understand what went wrong.
Awesome idea! Thanks for taking payment part for TSS services and combine into one service. Now I don't need to figure out all these crappy services and pay for each of them. Many thanks for one entry points. And hope our small payments will help to develop/support this plugin!
Maybe you need to add reference to the free version of the plugin and give change to people who DOES NOT WANT to pay for yours aggregated TTS services, they could install FREE plugin and pay to google and microsoft directly to get TTS functionality.
This is great.
Anki, decks and its addons should be a community of open source and volunteer work as it has been. I don't like this new model you are proposing because it erodes it and might permeate through the entire community and harm it in the long term.
For anyone interested, there is another version of AwesomeTTS, free, that is working for me: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/814349176
This add-on cannot be offered for free because it interfaces with various cloud APIs which require payment. The addon's license itself will be open source (I am still figuring out details). If you'd like to discuss this further or volunteer to help out, please get in touch: (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Great work and the author is constantly updating the 2 apps AwesomeTTS and Language tools. You get great TTS services as well for this addon. It is well worth every penny and I don't regret spending it. Keep up the good work!! Thanks a lot.
I'm surprised by the downvotes, subscribed to the creator's Patreon recently and got some extremely great and time saving addon's and Anki features. Keep up the great work
"awesomeTTS on a whole new level, language learning with Anki must-have"
It's being constantly improved and the developer is actively collecting feedback on his patreon page. So if you join now you may have a real impact in the direction in which this evolves. Cannot recommend enough!
NOTE: you do need paid API keys for this to work.
There is no reason why this addon would need to use a middle man to proxy my data before processing the translations from google. I feel like my data is being collected here. Further more, the domain it uses misleads the user and my firewall into thinking it was a part of ankiweb. So we have a little "AnkiApp" situation here. You should not use such a similar domain name.
This other addon does a better job and doesn't need to go through a proxy.
This addon is explicitly a paid add-on. You need to pay a monthly subscription to make use of it. This is because it relies on cloud APIs such as Google and Azure for translation and transliteration which require payment.
The addon you linked uses an unofficial API for translation. It doesn't provide text-to-support, doesn't provide transliteration support. Its set of functionality is not equivalent to Language Tools. There are plenty of free resources for Anki, but from our experience, there are plenty of people willing to pay for high quality resources.
Regarding the domain-name of the REST API, it's not exposed to the user, unless you look for it in the source code. I don't agree with the view that there is an attempt at deceiving users.
It's great, that Azure is supported, but other than by Google I can only create 20 files at once.
