You can search for a word to learn how it is pronounced. You can also search for a phonetic sound to learn what words contain it. Press Ctrl+F and type in the word or sound. PerfectPronunciation will show a list of exercises which contain the word or sound. To close the list of exercises and go back to the normal view, press Esc.
PerfectPronunciation manages your learning in an intelligent way. When you run it, it gives you the exercises that you need to review. If you wish, you also test your knowledge of random exercises which will include all the words — those that you remember poorly and those that you remember well.
To start the random test, press Alt+F11. To end the random test, click Stop instead of Next Repetition.
