no.
I knew librivox but these days "youtube" and "youku" seems like way more modern to me.
I have generally preferred and / or will be preferring to listen on what I interest to. :)

Workaudiobook is just software for listening to MP3s and repeat sections. It doesn't matter what the content is. You can listen to music if you want.


ok. Have you developed this application by your own?
I should nevertheless congratulate you if it is so, even if it comes to me a bit boring.

No it is developed by some Russian company I think.

yes , that is probable.
Although I heard from many russians that they were good in software development, this application is not sufficient to speak so.

Thank you for this thread/share as I can see you would like to let us be informed on developments in language studies.
I appreciate.

Yabla player is excellent with all its functions, but it's all pre-edited.

I have an old Minidisc player that allows you to do your own editing in a 70 minutes disc with up to 250 chunks of any length, selectable with the remote: A-B play, repeat once, repeat endlessly, random repeat ...

may I request on behalf of someone else ,that you share applications for computer?

that is why I do not want to download any application on my phone caused by security issues.

Thanks

I know but it’s too time consuming since it’s not automated. WorkAudioBook selects automatically segments on the basis of subtitles. Super handy.
