How does the 'Say the Word' feature work in games?

The ”say the word” feature in games happens automatically when an English word in a word list or multiple choice answer matches a word that we have in our audio library. This feature does not work for sentences or multiple words.

Audio buttons in Word Lists

For single words in a word list, an audio button will appear as shown in the image below if that word is in our audio library. In this example, the words cat, cow, rat and dog are all in the audio library so audio buttons appear for the question word and the answer pictures.

Audio Buttons in Multiple Choice Question Sets

In multiple choices questions and answers. If a question or an answer is just one word, and that word exists in our audio library, then the ‘say the word’ audio button will appear in a game. Audio buttons do not appear for pictures in multiple choice question sets so you must use a word list if you want audio buttons to appear with the pictures. In the example below, the question consists of a picture and the text "I see a ___." Since this is not a single word, an audio button will not appear. However, the answers are single words and they exist in the audio library, so audio buttons appear for the answers.

We are hoping to add text to speech functionality that will be able to read the entire question to students. We are researching this and hope to have a solution in the not too distant future.

The audio library currently contains over 800 English words. Below a list of all of the words that are in the library. They are listed alphabetically and you can use your browser's search function (ctrl+ f) to search for a word to see if it is available.
