Obtaining the audio from Tatoeba was a painful process - no need for anyone else to be subjected to it.

I just shared the deck "Tatoeba Spanish sentences with audio". It contains 1286 sentences from Totoeba.org, tagged with the verb tenses used in the sentence. If you notice any errors, please let me know so that I can update my database. I'm sure there are plenty of annotation errors- it is very easy to hit the wrong checkbox while annotating. Each sentence has a sentence ID number (visible via 'browse' or 'edit') which would be the best way to identify the sentence with the error.

Eventually I will share my entire sentence database (or at least those sentences for which I have the appropriate permissions). In the meantime, enjoy!

My goal for the Subs2SRS decks is accurate listening comprehension. Hitting the replay button multiple times until I can hear each word accurately does not bother me, even though I find rewinding a video to re-watch a scene irritating. I use the sentence decks to test the accuracy of my listening comprehension. My cards are set up so that I hear the audio play once and then I need to transcribe the sentence.


I have been wondering how to get Tatoeba into Anki. Would you share your workflow? Or could you share the deck itself? Thanks!


I forget to quote your message when I wrote my last post. Oops. I just share a deck for you.

Thanks very much! That is a fabulous resource. I have been considering making that for a year but was overwhelmed by the challenge of pulling the audio out of tatoeba. Much obliged for your generosity!

Now by downloading your deck and exporting as a csv file, one could make an open source Glossika-style audio sentences product with SRS intervals, possibly using the Gradint program:
