These are great updates, so happy to see an audio file for all correct readings!

Question: are there any plans to have a setting so the voice actor is chosen randomly each time an item comes up for review? I would love that.

Next Question: are there any plans to do audio files for sample sentences? That would be amazingly useful as well.

This is a great update! Thanks to the whole team for giving us audio for more readings, and for giving us options for the voices!

Put my vote for random voice selection, too.

I would also like to have Kanji read.

I sent a long list a while back of suggestions. Do you still have it?

flashes back to the super loud Koichi reading of “wanikani” that was in level 50

It doesn’t really make sense to have audio for kanji. Kanji don’t have “correct” pronunciations on their own (even for a single reading) since the pitch accent can change depending on the word it’s in.

Omg, can we please get movie reference audio? So the audio for こくほう would actually be Nic saying I’m gonna steal The Declaration Of Indipendence

Would a script for this not be viable actually? Isn’t it doable to source the sound byte from an external website and push away the audio from WK?

I suppose it cannot be done “oficially” due to copyright issues.
