What is glotdojo?
GlotDojo is our upcoming solution to study other languages. It'd be a different product line.
Can ejoy English lifetime learners use it too? Should I pay extra money?
Thank you for asking. GlotDojo is a different product line and we have to build a brand new technology system for it. The first version would focus mainly on translating & lookup functions. You can use it freely. Which other languages are you in your plan now?
I am interested in Spanish and Italian. Thank you for asking.
Thanks for your info ;)
Thank you for the invitation to join your community; it gives me a way to express myself and practice by sharing with others.
I usually study on my cell phone because of mobility but I prefer the computer when I need to write something which requires my focus.
I love eJoy products but I still need something else to keep me on track like auto reading should be a great tool. Small stories where I can read and listen at the same time, and having questions to answer about it.
Thank you for your idea. Regard the auto reading, have you installed eJOY Reader? and have you used the Audio Reader on laptop? Let's check it out.
In future, we will add stories and exercises for you to practice reading skills.
Thanks Diep Bui for your reply.
Yes, I have checked it on my phone, and probably is a reason of not getting the auto reading. Next time, I will try on my computer since I don't have a laptop.
Thanks again for keeping my idea in mind.
You mean, the audio reader on your phone is not working? Or you don't know how to find it? Tell me more. I'll do my best to help you.
It would be nice that Ejoy English and Glot Dojo app could be optimised for the IPad and tablets format, not just vertical but horizontal. Other thing important is that we could use the options as "copy” and "sharing”, since sometimes we have installed more professional dictionaries to use in our devices. Now that is possible just in Dojo web, but not in the app.
Thank you for your feedback. Could you please send us the screenshot where the app doesn't work well on iPad. We do support eJOY on iPad. We'll fix this bug. Thanks!
I have taken a photo. When I use my Ipad I use it horizontally, but in the app for Ipad you just can use it vertically.
This another photo of EJOY Web, as you see I can select a word having the option of "copy" and "sharing" to look up other dictionaries. however with Ejoy app I can’t do it.
@Tung Manh Thank you for letting us know about this. We'll check it.
Now, Ejoy app optimizes on mobile, therefore, our design show content vertically. I'll write down your request and we will weigh up to show function copy, share.... thanks
Six months later, horizontal version hasn't came out.
I don't have an iPad phone or laptop but Samsung phone. Is that a problem?
No. The audio reader works well on Samsung. We have tested it. Please describe the issue in more details. We will fix it ;)
Hi, I'd like a way to syncrhronize all my devices simultaneosly. It'd be great if the synchronization were automatic too. Thank you, and congrats for your job!
Thank for your suggestion so much! Could you help me post it again in Feature Request Topic? If you post in Feature Request topic, we can add status for your request. And you can update feature request status as soon as possible
eJoy extension on Laptop. Can not use translate subtitle on Netflix
Could you take a screenshot about your issue and send it to me? I will check it
here, only subtitle not translate subtitle.
The second subtitle just shows when Netflix supports that language. Now, we are developing a new product to support multi-Language, and Translate entire subtitle will be resolved. Thanks
I got it, thanks a lot
It is wonderful and works just perfect. Thanks
Hi, I have been using eJOY English for a long time and it has helped me a lot, but recently I had a problem. English writing started from right to left! My language starts from right to left, but English is supposed to start from the left. This is a picture of the problem.
eJOY Go web
The problem is on YouTube
We fixed this issue and update ejoy yesterday. thank for your feedback
I tested again and realized that have an issue with language which starts from right to left. Now we're fixing this problem like this. Do you think its order is correct?
Yes it's good
Thanks for your hard work
Today we have updated to version 6.1.2 and fix the issue relevant to reverse subtitles. Thank you for letting us know about this. Your feedback helps us get better.
The ejoy go videos still don't have the shortcut keys that ejoy interfaced with Netflix and Youtube. I am not able to use keyboard shortcut keys to monitor through the subtitles of ejoy go videos. You have got a lot of great content in ejoy go and ejoy epic and if you can interface more shorcut keys to these websites, the users would enjoy more seamless experience.
Even the popup that displays definitions of words didn't get updated in ejoy go and epic videos.
When I search for the same word in google chrome, I get examples, thesaurus extra in the popup. Even the pronunciation is also not updated in popup that appears in ejoy go and epic videos.
We have carefully considered these problems(config shortcut keys, consistent between the popups), but we need more time to deploy it. Thank you for the great suggestions!
Earlier, eJOY extension in Netflix was having an option to on/off control bar with a shortcut key C. It was a useful feature to have un-interrupted experience. But now that feature is not available. Hope, this eJOY extension shortcut feature will be re-introduced not only in Netflix but also to other eJOY supported video platforms.
Thank you for your feedback. We already know about this issue and will soon bring the feature back in upcoming updates!
I prefer to have Ejoy Reader on the desktop/laptop. I sometimes avoid reading articles on my mobile devices (iphone/ipad) as I am more focused and have better concentration in using the computer.
Can you please develop a desktop version for Ejoy Reader with the following feature?:
+ Extension to Chrome/Firefox/Edge
+ Easy to save articles to Ejoy Reader (so we can find and read articles again to build up and recall vocabulary
+ Ability to tag articles
+ Ability to sync across devices

Hi Gnuh Mahp,
Thanks for your feedback. We love Pocket and that's a great idea for developing eJOY Reader! At the moment we are focusing on building an online PDF reader tool for our users, but we will consider this for the next project. ;)
I have been using eJOY eXtension for the last 6 months and I think it is amazing.
But I believe that the learning efficiency could be increased if the words previously written in the dictionary were displayed in a different colour.
In the past, I have used another extension and I think it (change colour) was very useful for learning words.
Thank you for your feedback. Do you mean changing the word's color if you have already looked up that word with eJOY extension?
I am thinking of a situation where a word is added to my dictionary.
As in the extension: Language Learning with Netflix (https://languagelearningwithnetflix.com)
It would be great!
Before that, I worked with Language Learning with Netflix and I can say that it worked very well for learning new words.
Thank you Andrzei for the suggestion. I have added this to our user's wishlist so our developer team can have a look at it!
Ejoy Go website has a lot of video content in it and it will be great to see if the interface of ejoy go is updated similar to that of Netflix, where we can use a lot of shortcut keys to go through subtitles. Hope you will change the video interface of Ejoy Go as soon as possible.
We do have a shortcut key list in Video settings on EJOY Go, but it's a bit different. Is there any Netflix shortcut key you would like to see on EJOY Go?
Also, we have Auto Translate sub on Go now!
Yes, if you can add the angular brackets (<,>) keys to go through the subtitles, that would be a great add-on and even (=,-) to speed up and slow down by 0.1x.
Apart from all these, the word hunt doesn't even display the subtitles in fullscreen when searched for a word.
As a whole, as you have already developed an excellent interface for Netflix with all great features, I request you to implement the same sort of interface in Ejoy go also. Then it becomes easier for users to get used to a single list of shortcuts in all websites.
@Seetharam Hi Seetharam, thank you for the very clear and helpful feedback.
The shortcuts on eJOY Go were created long before we have the second subtitle (Auto Translate sub) and before major changes happened to the shortcut keys on Netflix, that's why they look different. I agree that different shortcut keys on different sites can confuse our users and reduce the benefit of time-saving (as you try to remember them), so some changes will definitely need to be made here!
There's one thing: the S key is related to the Slow feature (the turtle icon on the video toolbar). We will see what we can do about it, be it changing S to another key, or completely omitting the slow feature.
Regarding the full-screen issue, it's an unknown bug (now known) and we will fix it soon.
I will update on Tribe here when I have news. Have a good day, Seetharam!
Thanks for providing a great platform for English learning users. I would like to request a few features that I believe will greatly improve UX.
1. Bulk manage added words
2. iOS eJoy reader related problems
3. Default typeface and styling options for Netflix / Youtube subtitles
Hi Cherie Chan,
Thank you so much for your ideas. In the future, we will add bulk management of added words features as well as change the typeface and style of the subtitles. Besides, we'll try to develop the bookmark feature. But as an English-learning app, we are afraid that this book-reading-friendly feature is not our focus at this time, so it will take a long time to do so.
Regard your second request, I've tested my own but on both modes, it worked well and the text didn't overlap. Maybe your text is too long, so please try just a part of the book. Could you please send us the video to better describe your situation. We'll fix this if it is a bug. Thanks!
I just noticed you can now bulk organise words in the work bank. I would like to express my appreciation for the team.
Thanks for implementing this feature!
It's nice of you to say so. We'll continuously enhance to bring out the most helpful products and services for English learners.
I like Glot Dojo for learning languages but google translations are unreliable. It would be possible to use Reverso Context translations in a future?
Thanks and regards,
I think it's a good way to replace unreliable google translation.
We will reconsider and improve it in the future.
