** All English Audio by CK - Randomly-selected **

http://www.manythings.org/rndaudio/eng/all.html

This loads an external file that contains all 401,794 English sentences with audio by CK in the 2019-04-21 exported data.

This may take a long time on the first load, but after that, each randomly-selected list should be fairly fast.

This works on my computer, but if your computer is not so powerful, it may not work.

You will be able to listen to each audio at 3 different speeds.

If this doesn't work for you, you can get a similar feeling with smaller chunks of data at http://www.manythings.org/rndaudio/ .

** Stats - 2019-04-20 - Native Speaker Sentence Counts **

http://tatoeba.byethost3.com/stats-190420.html

These week I also added in a column showing constructed and dead language contributions, and the default sort is different.

What's the meaning of the figure "Native Minus Other Non-Native"?

Did you intend it to be All Sentences Minus Other Non-Native? Or, which is the same, Native PLUS Dead & Constructed? I would definitely understood the figure and why it makes sense to sort by it.

It's the number in the column labeled "Native" minus the number in the column labeled "Other Non-Native."

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson flying hot air balloon. They get lost, so they have to land. They have no idea where they are. Sherlock Holmes asks passing by guy: "Excuse me sir, but where are we ?" Guy says: "You are in hot air balloon" and he walks away.

After some thinking Sherlock says : "That person was a mathematician". "How did you know that ?" asks Doctor Watson. Sherlock Holmes replies: "Well first he gave a very precise answer, and second - the answer was completely useless"

No.

I don't understand what you mean by this.

I created sentence #7842475 two days ago along with two other ones containing the word "hidroavión" ( #7842473 and #7842474 ) but when I do a search (either literal or general, either in Spanish or in any language) of the term (example: https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentenc...rom=und&to=und ) only two old sentences created by another user show up. This happened with many other sentences I created yesterday and earlier.

Does anyone know the reason for this?

[EDIT]

I replaced the link to my list of sentences (too dynamic) with direct links to the sentences mentioned above.

A few more sentences with the same issue: #7843726 , #7847259 , #7847261 , #7847262 , #7847265 , #7847268 , #7847269 and #7847270 There are many more, though.

[#7842475] En el puerto había un viejo hidroavión destartalado, cubierto de herrumbre y salitre.

I suspect some sentences may not have been indexed properly.

These searches don't find that sentence either.

Thanks, CK! :)

I noticed it way earlier but I thought the system would be overcharged or something and it would take some time but then I checked the first sentences I added yesterday and they were alright so I thought something must not have been properly working.

This sentence cannot be found, too:
https://tatoeba.org/rus/sentences/show/7845761
Фред - лодырь.

It doesn't even appear in the search results for "лодырь":

It's very strange. I've just added some sentences in Spanish with the words "okapi" and "okapis". The ones containing "okapi" show up when searched ( https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentenc...rom=spa&to=und ) but the one containing "okapis" ( Sentence #7848671 ) doesn't :(

[EDIT]
Ooops! Now it does! but it didn't show up before I posted this. It didn't show up for at least 10 minutes...

:D :D :D #7848729 и #7848731 ;) ;) ;)

(they don't show up, by the way... at least not yet! :D)

[EDIT]

But now they do! Honestly! It must be true that the okapis read them! :D :D :D *clap*

[EDIT II]

Большое спасибо за переводы! *clap* *clap* *clap*

The latest "okapi" and "okapis" sentences in Spanish that yesterday were searchable have now vanished and cannot be found via regular searches ( https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentenc...rom=spa&to=und https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentenc...rom=spa&to=und ) only old "okapi" sentences can be found. :(

Are we running down to worse or is somebody tinkering in the system to see how to fix it?

[EDIT I]
Furthermore, yesterday I created some sentences with "espaguetis" and "aguacero" to see if those words disappeared from the bottom of this list: https://tatoeba.org/eng/vocabul...es/spa?page=33 At the beginning they didn't but some minutes later they did AND the last page of the needed Spanish words list wasn't 33 any longer but 27! Now it's back to the previous state, though :(

[EDIT II]
As a control, I have just created two sentences in Spanish with "tropel" which, after one or two minutes became searchable: https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentenc...el%22&from=spa Let's see if they'll keep on being searchable tomorrow.
Also, I added 3 more sentences (there were previously two) containing "alienígena". After 5 minutes or so they became searchable: https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentenc...na%22&from=spa .

Dear Seael,

Gracias for reporting the problem to us. I am touched by all the research you did to help us identifying the problem. Thank you.

I think I solved the problem now. If it happens again, please let us know.

Note that new sentences never immediately appear in search results. Under normal circumstances, new sentences are made available to search under 15 minutes (but this may change in the future). However you may have to wait a bit longer when the server is too busy, or when we are working on something related to search.

Modifications of metadata (like translations, ownership, tags, audio, etc.) of already searchable sentences are instantly taken into account by the search.

That's great news! Thanks so much for all your efforts on solving the issue! And for the info, too!

It was something which kept nagging me because I felt as if the site was sort of impaired so now I'm relieved from that feeling! :)

Kind regards!

I've noticed a few times today when posting to the Wall that my post disappears, or that the display hangs indefinitely after I've posted it. I reported this on GitHub ( https://github.com/Tatoeba/tatoeba2/issues/1870 ). Until the problem is fixed, I recommend that you write your posts in a separate editor and then copy the contents here, or write the posts here but copy them to a separate editor before posting. That way, you'll be able to copy and repost if the original post doesn't get saved.
