Speak the words and Speak the words set

Hey guys,

Thanks for this AMAZING PLUGIN!

I would like to ask if you guys have ever thought about having the possibility of letting us add audio, images and text such as lists to the Speak the words and Speak the words set activities. Many times I want my student base their answers on pictures, audio, or a list of alternatives and it would be great if we had these kind alternatives. or maybe add speak the words feature to course presentation or interactive videos!

Thanks again

Hi wowingles1,

Thanks a lot for contributing your ideas on how to make H5P better! We’re now working on something called the H5P supporter program allowing the H5P community to vote for and fund the top voted H5P features. Also there are developers in the community who every now and then works on a feature they find interesting or useful.


Yes, wowingles1 is correct. Speak the words and Speak the words set would both be greatly improved if images, formatted text, and embedded content could be included in the question stems. Even allowing editing of the HTML for the question stem would be a nice step forward as long as security is maintained. 


I think picture support would really be useful.

this plugin is already great and thanks to all contributers. i, too, wish to be able to add voice and picture in the questions.

The voice recognition feature is wonderful. Excellent work, ya'all!

Would you mind adding a few more working examples?


If I could insert Speak the words in a Course presentation or  a Column there would be possibilities to add images and anything.

Hi AK,

This is a good idea and we have considered it before. There is one very important limitation though that is stopping us from implementing it. Speak the Words only works with Google Chrome and if the users does not have Chrome they will not be able to access the whole activity. Once more and more browsers supports it will only be a matter of time and this content will be included in Column and CP.


But this feature is so useful, I won't mind upload the mp3 uploading a sentence or paragraph to the interface. Maybe add the H5 sound content, such that You can add a block of text to the sound object and allow it to be clicked on and readout, and relocate the play icon at the end of the block. 

ALso I wonder if we can use google API speech to get it readout, of course, you would need to apply for the API key. 


Yes, we language teachers really need this feature.

About 3 weeks ago i saw that the chrome on my android device crashed/closed itself when i tried to use this plugin. And still haven't managed to come over it. Now i am trying it on h5p's own examples site and having the same problem. But there is no problem on PCs. Please help. Thanks a lot.

Hi muyanik09,

Please check my answer/question here.


I also would like to have them in questions content. I also suggest adding sound capabilities in the solution or both parts of the feedback (correct and incorrect).
