Selective Redaction — hiding some, but not all, of the words — is a key feature of the Jiveworld Method.

Other apps take an all-or-nothing approach to showing the transcript. Showing nothing leaves the learner floundering, unable to piece together a narrative. But displaying all of the words means you are most likely just reading and doing very little active listening.

Selective redaction lets you choose the level of help you need, while you still keep your ears working hard to fill in the gaps. We also provide other assistance such as speed control and  hints in your primary language preceding each passage. 

Use the X-ray filter in the Study Mode player to adjust the redaction settings: Hide all words, Show some words, and Show all words.
