7.6.2011 - Bug fix
An error has been removed in current version 1.33, which showed error message at the start of the application and when closing settings window. This problem concerned only users with not installed microphone.
New version has been amended by new functions and correction.
1. Now you can record your voice/pronunciation and compare it with Google Translate pronunciation.
2. In case of incorrect language settings in application preferences, voice pronunciation is usually not correct. Even after correction pronunciation could not work for some word. It's caused by functionality, when pronunciation is downloaded during first use to computer and next time it's played from there.
Therefore a new function has been implemented. If you press voice pronunciation button (icon of speaker) for approx. 2 seconds, current pronunciation file will be removed and new pronunication downloaded from internet. This function works also for words in the list of words.
3. New mode called "Write mode" has been implemented. Now you can also type the translation instead of simple guessing. Answer will be evaluated afterward. This function can be used by clicking new button with pen icon or you can check "Write mode" checkbox in preferences to use Write mode every time a word is appearing.
4. Our users experienced bad application bahavior when using escape key (ESC). This has been corrected.
