So Neicudi has indicated that he’ll soon make some additions to the SubsToKitsun upon by suggestion to add a monolingual sentence card feature to SubsToKitsun so I decided to make this thread as a suggestion/complaint box. Just wanna precede it by saying that I’m fluent in 3 languages (Japanese slowly becoming my fourth) but none of them are programming ones so do feel free to kanchō me if I ask for something too unreasonable.
- Allow aligning subtitles by 100 milliseconds rather than just 500. Sometimes the misalignment is such that the subtitles are always just shy or a bit fast. This doesn’t considerably affect the viewing experience but it makes it impossible to automatically generate cards since either the beginning or the end of the audio for a particular sentence will get cut off.
- Allow audio editing as soon as a card is automatically generated rather than have to go on the manage cards list to do it.
- Allow automatic flashcards that span multiple lines/subtitles. The idea is that there are sentences that are often split into two or three subtitles because they’re long or said with some kind of pause in between. Or maybe there’s some two or three line dialogue that is helpful in order to understand how a particular word works (I generally try to find I+1 sentences sandwiched between two sentences I fully understand and put all of three in the same audio card). Either way, it would be nice to be able to join multiple subtitles into one card.
- Allow for customizing the buffer period for recorded audio before and after a subtitle when generating cards. Essentially you could determine whether you want the audio to be exactly coincident with the span of the subtitle on screen or you could choose whether the audio would start say 1 second before the subtitle and end 2 or more after. This would be useful to correct for any subtitle misalignment in the making of flashcards but also to account for user side lag.
- Gif or Video of the scene. I assume this not to be all that easy but a man can dream.
- Automatically generate a whole episode’s worth of flashcards.
- Add cake
