      Dear pali students,


      Right now I am trying to learn Javascript (the programming-language for DPR). I want to mak a tool/progam based on DPR for the translation exercises of the available pali courses. During your study you would have the complete PED at hand instead of just a wordlist. It would make it easy to get acquainted to the whole depth of the meaning of a word right from the start of your study.

      The collection/book part would be replaced by a pali-coursename/chapter selection.

      Instead of the reading window we would need 3 fields:
      * a field that shows the sentence to be translated,
      * an input field for the answer (like the dictionary-lookupfield, but longer) and
      * a field that shows the correct answer after pressing enter or clicking a submit button. (usually two lines: one word-by-word translation and one complete sentence.

      After pressing accept the next sentence should show up.

      The exercises and anwers are available on the Web. The trick will be to get the questions and anwers together on the screen at the right time. You would have to read the answer yourself to see if it matches, I am not (yet?) thinking of checking that automatically.

      It wil take me a year or so (programing takes always longer as you think) to make it. If some tech guy or girl makes it before I can I would be very happy. If not, we all have to be patient.

      Kind regards,

      Ria Glas
