  11. 11. How to use FlashcardsOverviewBrowse your terms and definitions in our main Flashcard mode.Click on the Arrow buttons with your mouse to flip between cards. You can also use the Leftand Right arrow keys on your keyboard.By default, Quizlet shows you both sides of the flashcard at once, but if youd like to see onlyone side at a time simply uncheck the box that says "Both Sides" in the upper right-handcorner.

Click with your mouseto flip the flashcard or use the Up and Down arrow keys on your keyboard.Full screen, shuffle, and audioThe icons in the upper left corner of the card allow you to study in full screen mode,shuffle/random mode, and add audio. • Full screen - the icon on the left expands the flashcards to full screen, helpful for studying a set with images. • Shuffle - the middle icon randomly shuffles and re-starts the set of flashcards. • Audio - the right icon, shaped like a speaker, enables our audio features.11 | P a g e
  12. 12. How to use SpellerOverviewIn Speller you type what you hear. This mode works best for foreign language vocabularyand pronunciation, spelling, and familiarizing yourself with terms you dont know very well.With audio in 18 languages Speller works automatically with almost any flashcard set.Listen to a term or definition and type in the correct response. Click on the "replay audio"button or click "esc" to repeat the term. In this case the answer is “lait.” If you type it incorrectly you move on to the next question. If you make a mistake, Speller shows you whichletters you missed so you can try again.In this example, the term was not spelled correctly. “Laee” was entered rather than “lait.”Speller shows that the the first part of the word “la” was spelled correctly and then highlightsin green the proper letters to spell out the rest of the word. Speller then speaks the term again,“lait,” and spells out the correct spelling word letter by letter: “l”, “a”, “i”, “t”.You must spell the word correctly to move on to the next term.12 | P a g e
  13. 13. Speller asks 7 terms per round. In between rounds you receive a Progress Checkpoint to seehow you’re doing. You must answer each term correctly twice in a row for it to count asFully Learned.Speller is complete once you’ve Fully Learned each term.

At the end of eachround, Quizlet retests you on what you missed.Answer every term/definition correctly twice in a row and Learn mode ends.14 | P a g e

  22. 22. How audio works on QuizletQuizlet uses advanced text-to-speech software for its audio. All content in our supportedlanguages will work automatically based on your written terms and definitions.If you want to exclude certain content from audio, use parentheses and it will be ignored. Forexample, "cat (cat)" is spoken simply as "cat."Get StartedClick on the speaker icon to activate audio on your flashcards. You can also click the speakericon down below in your list of terms to hear each term and definition individually.22 | P a g e
  23. 23. The pronunciations are usually (not always) accurate. Click to report an incorrectpronunciation or problematic audio clip.Supported LanguagesCurrently, Quizlet supports audio for the following languages: • English • Spanish • French • German • Chinese (Simplified and Traditional)23 | P a g e
  24. 24. • Portuguese • Arabic • Italian • Japanese • Korean • Russian • Turkish • Polish • Dutch • Greek (Modern) • Swedish • Finnish • RomanianWe expect to support more languages soon. Click to request another language youd like tohear on Quizlet and well notify you when it becomes available.Selecting the right languageIf the audio sounds incorrect, it may be simply that the flashcard set is tagged with the wronglanguage.To check, look at the language listed on the main Flashcard page. In the set below, if youwanted to change the language from "Spanish" you would click on "not Spanish" to see adropdown list of all the language options.Make sure you have the correct language selected or audio wont work correctly.TroubleshootingStep 1: Speaker IconsDo you see little speaker icons next to your terms and definitions and at the top of the page?If not, audio is not enabled. This could be because you entered terms in a language we do notsupport, or the languages tagged to the set might just be wrong (see above "How do youknow which language my set is in"), theres no text (image-only definition), or the text is toolong to support audio.Step 2: Audio on Your Computer24 | P a g e
  25. 25. Find out if you can get any sets to work. Try U.S. State Capitals to see if audio works for youthere.If audio works for you, but only on some sets or terms and not others, please click to report aterm with bad audio.If the audio doesnt work on that set, try going directly to this audio test file. Note: we serveaudio from "v.quizlet.com" even though the rest of Quizlet is from "quizlet.com". If thisaudio test file does not load then theres a strong chance that your network administratormay need to "allow" access to subdomains. This is often the case in schools with whitelist-based filtering software.Step 3: Web Browser • Use a web browser like Chrome, Safari, or Firefox and make sure its up-to-date • If you use Internet Explorer, make sure you have the default JavaScript security settings in place. Try Tools ->Internet Options->Security->"Reset all zones to default level"Step 4: Check Flash • Make sure you have the most updated version of Flash • If youre using Flashblock or ClickToFlash, add Quizlet to its whitelist • If youre on iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad) Flash is not requiredStep 5: Contact UsIf youve tried all the steps above and are still having problems, contact us with any errorsyoure seeing.25 | P a g e
