Memorization Introduction

Repetition - Mnemosyne

Similarly, Mnemosyne, a spaced repetition application, is equally free of advert/lock-in. It requires, before installing, the install of the freely available MS Visual Studio 2015.

Note: Unlike a spreadsheet, one should use only one database (default.db) wherein numerous sets are defined bu tags and subset further defined using '::'. Sets and subset are (de)activated under the tab 'Study'

To create tags:

Media Input

- place all required media eg. sound, image files (within their respective folders) within the folder: C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Roaming\Mnemosyne\default.db_media // best to create additional subfolders; such as images, sound.

- Put no spaces within these files names. If necessary, put '-' as a separator.
- Replace the [] delimiters shown below here with the correct html delimiters.

a. Adding images

Right-clicking in Edit mode on a text entry field brings up a file selection dialog that one can use to choose an image file. This generates usual 'img src' tags - subfolders can also be created in the media folder eg.[img src="images/somepic.jpg"]

b. Adding sounds

Right-clicking in Edit mode can also be used to insert sound files. This generates tags of the form
[audio src="mysoundfile.mp3"] ## the file in main directory (default.db_media).
To play the sound again, press CTRL+R in the main window. One can also play a part of the audio file, as audio tags support start and stop arguments, e.g. start="1" stop="2"> will play the sound file from 1 to 2 seconds.

1. While the Mnemosyne indicate pending cards, there is no need to attempt to ‘clear’ all of them – take them on at one’s own pace. Mnemosyne accommodates to the pace of the user.
