[UserScript] WK Review Audio Switch

:warning: This is a third-party script/app and is not created by the WaniKani team. By using this, you understand that it can stop working at any time or be discontinued indefinitely.

Intended solution to this thread.


Adds an autoplay toggle to the top left button cluster on the lesson, review and extra study session page. This way you can turn off audio autoplay during sessions without having to reload the browser or mute the tab/site.

@Orock45 putting it here for organization purposes

With v0.2 if you right click the button instead of left clicking, the change will be temporary and it will be reset when you close and open your reviews again. If a setting is temporary, the button will be red to show it. Right clicking or left clicking both should get you out of the temporary state.

So for your usecase you would want the autoplay to be turned on by default and then right click it when you need to turn it off.

I’ve added

autoplay = true;
window.audioAutoplay = autoplay;

at the beginning at the code. That way i can let the script run on everytime.
Your script is working like a charm!

You shouldn’t need to if you just right click, but your setup, not mine

I’ve been using this script for a long time, and seems to have been broken by recent WK update. Is anyone aware of a script with similar functionality?

I know of one, it’s a good one. It’s actually the exact same script, but now updated to work on the new ui.

It’s a bit half-baked, but do tell me if you notice something going wrong.

with the new update, so far so good. Thanks my dude.
