Wiktionary’s transcriptions don’t work fine: the gaps are two large, and diacritics don’t show as expected. Is there any solution to this?

The gaps are introduced by the script that we used:

The script introduces a “space” between letters and some diacritics are lost. I sent the data to a friend (Xu Yinuo) as obtained from the script. Afterwards I noticed the problem and compiled a version in .dsl format without the extra gaps:

I do not know how to edit .mdx files. If you are able to do it, it should be possible to remove those gaps.

I only scraped the data and Xu Yinuo compiled the .mdx. He might be able to help us… Let’s wait for his reply here.

I am Xu Yinuo. I fixed the space problem in the wiktionary pronunciation.


@dedict Thank you very much again ! I am glad to see you on FreeMDict Forum.

Dear Xu, we should promote FreeMDict among learners of German :slight_smile:

PDAWiki is dying and even new registrations are suspended.

The admin of FreeMDict @hua is very generous and open minded. A great admin makes a great forum. :clap:
