The TTS keeps mispronouncing a word.
When editing an item, you can deliberately mis-spell a word/phrase, so that the TTS sounds acceptable. By putting this text in the 'Phonetic' field, the text displayed still looks good.
How many items can I create?
It's really limited by the amount of storage space on your device. The only views we limit the number of items displayed are the system generated views (most recent, most used, GPS). Our Max Items setting only impacts these views. Otherwise you can have as many vocabulary items in a folder that you desire. Please remember, that as you increase the number of vocabulary in a folder, it will take longer to display the vocabulary in that folder.
