New Feature: Audio Clips

I’m very pleased to announce the addition of something folks have been asking for since I first started this site: audio clips. This addition is thanks to the generosity of Pavel Farkas, who volunteered to produce the audio clips and supply them to me in a web-ready format. Not only do I owe him a debt of gratitude for all the work he did to make this happen, I owe him an apology for taking so long to update the site with the new feature. Thank you Pavel!

At the moment there are a couple of browser requirements for hearing the audio: Flash and JavaScript. The sound clips are triggered by the jPlayer plugin for jQuery, and it uses an invisible Flash clip for playback. I’m very interested in hearing feedback from any users who find that this doesn’t work, or find that these browser requirements interfere with their enjoyment of the site.

Thanks again to Pavel, and I hope everyone enjoys the new feature.

  1. No sound for me, everything else works fine. Firefox, up to date. Win7 32bit.

    I have sound from other websites with flash.

    ….otherwise, nice site 🙂

  2. Great idea!!

    I’m Penélope from Ecuador and I’m really interested in learning Czech. It is a wonderful idea to include pronunciations in your teachings, escpecially for someone like me who do not know any of this language. CONGRATULATIONS AND THANKS
