Any update on putting Bing Translator on LingQ for Hebrew?

Is there any update about putting Bing Translator on LingQ for Hebrew?

As I said last time, it's the only translator that has Hebrew text to speech. And I often find it better than Google Translate. I'm doing a lot of copying and pasting into Bing Translator.

    We are considering how to deal with Hebrew and Farsi TTS which are currently not supported by Google, but at this moment I am not sure when that will happen and are we going to use Bing Translator.

      TTS is supported by Bing Translator in Hebrew.

        @TamL - Which browser are you using?

            It works for me for individual words on both Safari and Chrome but, I see, it isn't working for the sentence TTS in Sentence Mode. Is that what you are trying?

              I can't figure it out. It's on single words, I tried clearing the cache, other languages work fine.

      Hi Alisa, glad to hear it will help your students. We want to keep adding Hebrew content so please let us know if you find anything we can share! :) We tried getting this site working with the extension but it isn't compatible... Too bad. But if you know of any similar sites, please message us.

        https://13tv.co.il

        This website has a lot of tv shows with subtitles, but the subtitles are imbedded into the video, so you can't get them into LingQ.

          Thanks. I think I've come across this one before... the issue is that the subtitles are hardcoded in the video and can't be extracted :(

        Also this Channel from youtube has subtitles on all of their videos you can use with the LingQ extension.

        @ericrobertz - I'd say this one may be it -

        Though allegedly adapted for learners (I don't see much difference, really) these are news, constantly updated, very short entries, all with precious audio! Here is one without vocals, for example

        And we really need your help implementing this one because I have no idea how audio can be ripped from the site... It's not only me - I came across this lesson uploaded by @DanRunner - I think he just had his phone recording the sound playing on the computer :)

      I wish I could find someone to transcribe the Kan History for Children series. I can hear cherry tree mentioned in the one on George Washington, but it is frustrating not to have the text.

        Try using this resource - - I don't know how active is Hebrew there, but, in general, it's meant for getting recordings of texts from native-speakers - all for free!
