anki-forvo-dl • Forvo Pronunciation Downloader (fully automatic)

0.04MB. Updated 2021-03-04. Only supports Anki 2.1.x.


An add-on that allows you to add Forvo.com pronunciations to your anki cards - fully automatically Usage When you add or edit a card, you will notice the blue Forvo button in the editor window. If you click that, anki-forvo-dl will ask you to select some fields and a language if not done already. Afterwards, you will be presented with a dialog window that shows you a list of all available pronunciations. If you click on the play button on the left of a pronunciation, you can listen to the audio. To select a pronunciation, click the checkmark icon. You can also hold down the shift key when pressing the blue Forvo button in the editor to automatically select the pronunciation with the most votes. Other shortcuts: - ctrl + F: Open forvo window - ctrl + shift + F: Add top pronunciation Field selection When adding audio to a card with a note type for the first time, anki-forvo-dl will ask you to select two fields: The search field, whose contents will be used to search on Forvo and the audio field, where the audio string will be placed in ([audio:XYZ.mp3]). By default, anki-forvo-dl will append the audio string to the existing contents of the audio field. If you want to change that, see the "Editing the config" section. Language selection When adding audio to a card that's part of a deck that isn't known by anki-forvo-dl, it will ask you to select the deck's language so that only relevant pronunciations will be available as results. You can either type in the language in English and hit enter or select it from the list you will be presented with. If you want to change the language later, see the "Editing the config" section Editing the config Note: As of now, you will have to edit the config manually. To do that, go to Tools > Add-ons > Select anki_forvo_dl > View Files. Then open the user_files directory and open the config.json file. Liability I am not liable for the plugin to work as described or for the downloads. Please create a backup of your anki folder before using it (just in case!)

Very intuitive setup and interface. It's very easy to use and saves seconds at a time that add up over the course of hundreds or thousands of cards. Thanks so much for making this!

Love the addon. However, suddenly, it has stopped working. This is the error message:

EDIT: Okay apparently my IP was banned, presumably for making too many audio requests. Had to use a VPN to make it work again.

Yet, I'm confused: I thought I'd have to enter my forvo login somewhere …
How does the Addon download without any account credentials of the user?

It's beautiful!

It's excellent, user friendly and beautiful. Would like to have the option to download multiple files if possible, it's nice to hear the words in a variety of different voices.
