Dictation

Dictation

 

I have a few suggestions for several options of the dictation quiz. The orange markings of words that show partly correct answers does not work well in Danish. It is hard to figure out which words are considered to be partially correct. For example, words with incorrect grammatical endings are marked with orange color.

 

 

Wishes:

 

1. Is it possible to make an option in which the words are either marked as correct or incorrect?

 

2. It would be fine if you could choose that a capital initial letter does not count as errors.

 

3. Is it possible to make the quiz so you could choose to check each line separately?

 

Best regards

Dorte

Hi Dorte,

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.

Hi Dorte!

1) Having such an option should be easy to do. I'll probably take care of it when I work on Dictation for the next time.

2) In the next version of Dictation which is in the phase of code review, you will be able to add optional spellings. This will allow you to configure this on a per word basis.

3) I assume that Dictation will also be choosable in H5P Column when that one is updated, so you'd be able to have multiple one-liners that can be checked separately.

Best,

Oliver 

Hi Oliver  

I would like to ask if you have had time to look at the Dictation program. As it is now, it cannot be used in Danish as the orange marking does not make any sense but is just confusing.

Hi Dorte!

I think I misunderstood you the first time. You just need to set the value of typos in the behavioral settings to either mark typos count as an error at 100 % (incorrect) or as an error at 0 % (correct).

Hello,

I'm trying to create a dication exercise, but i don't want students to see the solution.

When I go to the "Behavioural settings" i unmark it, but when i save it, the button is still there!

Is it a bug or just my ignorance?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Marta,

I can confirm that this is a bug. I reached out the developer of the content and you can check the progress here.

Hi all!

The bug has been fixed. Luckily, Dictation is scheduled for a patch release shortly anyway, so it should be gone very soon.

Cheers,
Oliver

Hi there!

First of all...thank you for such a useful content-type... I checked your GitHub but I'm lost on how to fix my Moodle with your fix because I search for the JS without a single clue where could it be...I'm using Moodle 3.11 and supposedly with the latest content-types from h5p.org but "Dictation" is still 1.0.7 and in your repository it's shown 1.0.8... I'm very interested in using this activity but for it to be useful in my case I need to have the "Show solution" disabled.

Thank you in advance for any help!!

Hi sergioccg,

If I'm not mistaken the PR for this has been merged into the official repository but has not yet been released. I will follow up with the person responsible with releasing the updates.

Hi sergioccg!

That problem is fixed on the master branch of H5P.Dictation (which is to become version 1.0.9 - just waiting for some pull-request to be finished), but the H5P core team (they didn't create that content type) will have to find some time to update it on h5p.org and the H5P Hub.

Cheers,

I would like to request a version of dictation that allows for more than 1000 characters. 

Ideally it would have more of a text box that could even accept and score line breaks.

Hi bjaffeblueledge!

Would you mind to elaborate on the use case?

You can change the character limit yourself easily by using the alter_semantics hook described at https://h5p.org/node/2692 but allowing and score line breaks would require to change the code.

We want to use it for transcription practice. 

Basically play a piece of audio from a business meeting, interview, doctors notes, etc. and have someone practice transcribing it. 

If line breaks are hard is there an easy way to open the writing window up from a single line to more of a text box? 

Hi otacke, 

I dont think i have access to the H5P in a way that woudl allow me to modify the alter_semantics. I have an account with h5p.com  and h5p is installed in the LMS we use, eFront. 

Any tips would be great. You are a huge help.

Hi bjaffeblueledge!

You're correct, on H5P.com you cannot use the alter_semantics hook.

As for the text input field: There's already a ticket for making it grow once the text exceeds the available space. H5P.Dictation a free time project though, and I have no clue when I'll come around to do that.

As for your use case: I assume this could be done, but it'd require some rewriting. Don't know when I'd find the time.

Best,
Oliver

I appreciate yout feedback,

If this was soemthing we were interested in could we pay you or another programmer to do it?

Hi bjaffeblueledge!

Sure! I won't be available before October (maybe even November) however, so it might be best to look for another developer first. The source code is on github (https://github.com/otacke/h5p-dictation), and the other developer could simply create a pull-request that I'd have to approve or ask for changes. If you want to share your code, that is. Of course, you could also only run that code on your systems.

Best,

Oliver
