Anniversary Flashcards

I am posting an updated version of some flashcards that I posted some time ago. I have modified the audio and moved the cards over to an application that is free online for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Consequently, the flashcard package is one simple file that can easily be imported into the application. The decks comprise the vocabulary found in Units 1 through 36 (27, 29, 31, 32 omitted for the time being) of the Gregg Shorthand Anniversary Edition. The file is titled collection.apkg and as such will replace the any pre-existing decks in your Anki, this should make no difference to you if you are using Anki for the first time. I imagine you should be able to change the title of the package, if you prefer, and add it to your pre-existing collection, but I have only tested it with its present filename.
Flashcard format – Side 1: written word in longhand + spoken word (audio text-to-speech); Side 2: word in shorthand (with subpar image quality, but legible). There are shortcut keys you can use to speed through the cards, and you can modify the number of cards it allows you to study for the day. I would generally use the cram feature to overcome that restriction altogether.

EDIT: Here is a screenshot of how it looks on my computer. (note: there are more than 20 flashcards per unit, but the program has its own algorithm that schedules only 20/day for memorization under the preset settings.)

I realize this may not help advanced Greggers?.. Greggies?.. much, but I hope it is helpful nonetheless to someone. 
One last thing to point out is that someone else has made some Anki flashcards for Simplified and shared them through https://ankiweb.net/shared/decks/ 
Cheers.

    1. You need to click below where it reads "Short Answer." That would let you go through the deck.

      It would be nice to create decks with brief forms, or correlated with the lessons of the manual.

    2. I was under the impression that the program uploaded the decks according to unit (as I created the decks in that way, See Screenshot Above). Also, hitting the spacebar should advance you to the next card. I'm not sure if some of these setting got lost when I exported the deck. As far as a dictation, you might be better off using a text to speech program, or as Carlos suggested powerpoint, though I haven't tried that out personally.

    1. 1. Make a presentation with each slide having the outline and the audio for each word you want. To insert the audio file in the presentation, click here.

      2. Once you have your presentation ready, set it to advance automatically after the each slide is played. To advance a presentation automatically, click here.

      3. Finally, if you save your presentation as a show, it will "dictate" the words automatically!

      I tried it and it works.
