Help and Information

Here are some useful, quick tips.

Search dictionary

Filter word: Enter a keyword in the search box to see a list of available words with the "All" selection. Click on the page number if needed. Click on the blue link to look up the word. For best results, enter a parial word to see variations of the word. E.g. "help" instead of "helping/ed/ful".

Alphabetical letters: It's useful for 1) a single-letter word (such as A, B, etc.) and 2) very short words (e.g. "to", "he", etc.) to narrow down the words that begin with the first letter selected. Select the page number if needed. Click on the blue link to look up the word.

Don't forget to click "All" back when you search another word that begins with a different letter.

How to change speed in the videos

The built-in-browser playback speed is relatively new. It works only in the latest Chromium-based browsers such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge (at least on the PC platforms that I am aware of so far). Download the latest version of your browser if needed.

See the 3-dot menu inside the bottom right corner of the video. Click on it to open the menu.

Click on the Playback Speed and adjust the speed.

The best thing about this feature is that it is available on all videos, using the right Chromium-based browsers.

Some videos, particularly the stories and fables, provide subtitles available for PatronPlus subscribers on this website. The subtitles may be automatically on. But, if you'd like to turn it on or off manually. Here is how:

Whereever mentioned in the articles/posts on this website, there may be another track for the glosses other than the default English subtitles. Open the three-dot menu in the video, select the Captions and then Glosses.
