We've just launched animating transcripts, meaning it's easier than ever to follow every word of the podcast and not miss a single word.

New Feature: Animating Transcripts 🎥
Table of contents

We’re excited to announce that we’ve just launched ‘Animating transcripts’.

When you listen to any of the podcasts on, the words will now flash across the screen.

If you had previously downloaded the pdf or followed the transcript on the page, this will be a big improvement to your experience.

It means no scrolling and no zooming - the words now appear magically right on the screen, a bit like subtitles.

But they're better than subtitles.

Because you can just press any word that you don’t understand and the translation (in whatever language your phone is in) will appear there, directly in your browser.

See it in action below (including how to play at 2x the speed).

You can see the transcript for the first 60 seconds of every podcast without a membership.

But to get access to the full transcript you need to grab yourself a membership - it starts at just €1.87 a week.

There has never been a better time to become a member of Leonardo English.
