In our last post about iTalki tutors, I talked about the two main things you want to create with your tutor:
- High-quality example sentences that don’t have typos
- Recordings of those sentences
In the past, the process of getting these two things from a tutor has been kind of clunky/awkward to do on Skype. The typing part is slightly awkward (Am *I* typing the sentence, or is my tutor?), and the recording process is just a mess.
I need to install/buy a Skype call recorder, I need to write down timecodes for every sentence my tutor records, then open up the recording afterwards in an audio editor and select/export/name each sentence, etc. It’s super tedious and annoying, and I’m not really learning anything in the process.
So I hired a programmer to fix this, and I wanted to share the beta with you.
Someday, this may turn into a paid service, but for now, have fun with it, and let’s chat about ways we can make it into a better and better tool in the comments thread below.
I’ll walk you through it with images, and you’ll find the Beta Signup form/link right afterwards.
REQUIREMENTS: When using this tool, you’ll want to be on a Skype/phone/whatever call with your tutor. Also, to use the audio recording function, your tutor must be using a recently updated version of Chrome or Firefox. Audio recording doesn’t work in Safari yet.
