Improvements in UI and accessibility
Dear friends of Voice,
In this rather short development cycle the main focus was on improving the settings interface in order to make it easier accessible. In this case most of the credits goes to @Aminah!
Try it out!
We have also added a new website language thanks to @SeanL: View Voice in French now (and listen to suttas in Pali, English, or German).
Following a user request we have implemented a small pause between suttas in multiple sutta playlists. For those who wish playlists with longer pauses, @Robbie has developed a way to create them using python commands. Try it out, become a snake charmer!
And it should be easier now for those with slow internet to download a sutta (but still, don’t try DN 33!).
Voice now also has an Acknowledgements page.
Amongst the English language narrators, Russel has left and made way for Brian who turned out to be the most popular in our little poll on reading voices. He is pretty energetic, so probably keeps you awake while listening to the suttas. This seems to be what most people like. But for those who prefer it a bit softer there’s still good old Amy to help you out.
And when talking about leaving, we would like to use this occasion to officially say good bye to @Aminah who has now retired from the Voice team and became the first VOICE EMERITA. Next to all her contributions that are mentioned in the Acknowledgements there are of course still all those things you can’t easily find words for, but that are no less important. Aminah, you have left traces in our hearts that even a thousand DELETE buttons would not be able to erase! And at this point words fail me…
