A Byki list is a collection of learnable information, usually a set of words or phrases in a foreign language, expressed on flash cards. Byki lists may include sound or images for each card and may be viewed on Byki.com, or downloaded for use in the Express or Deluxe versions of the Byki software for PCs and Macs. Lists can also be downloaded onto a smartphone with the Byki for iPhone and Byki for Android apps.
A tag is a keyword or category grouping that describes a Byki list and can be used to find lists that have something in common. You can assign multiple tags to each list. To assign multiple tags at the same time, enter the tags separated by a single space, then click "Add Tags".
Do not enclose tags in quotation marks. Tags can use letters, numbers, and some special characters, such as hyphens, underscores, and periods. Tags cannot use the following special characters:
Byki uses an intelligent method to present information in the best possible order to help you learn. You will see items you have trouble with more often than those you master quickly. When you get a card wrong, you will see it again immediately.
Some languages require certain fonts be installed to display characters. If you cannot see the characters in a list on Byki.com, try downloading and installing Byki Express for that language to set the font for your system. Once the font is installed, lists in that language should display properly on Byki.com.
If a list has sound for each card, it will play automatically whenever the foreign word or phrase is displayed. You may also play the sound for any card by clicking the Play button on the bottom left. SlowSound may be used by clicking the turtle button before playing sound.
The Byki Deluxe software enables you to make lists and share them with friends or post them for the public to use for free on Byki List Central. Byki.com users can purchase Byki Deluxe for 20% off the normal price by visiting our purchase page.
Each correct answer increases your score, while each incorrect answer reduces it. The size of score movements will depend upon your previous progress in all of the learning modes. You will see the score for each card displayed on the card itself and in the View List tab. The scoring area to the right of the card will track your progress and display how many cards you have raised to each scoring level.
