Another quick update
A common request is improving the speed-to-character throughout the course. Although ideally you become familiar with the prerequisite items beforehand, for some just having exposure to the component/sound items is enough.
We want to explore an option to change the speed-to-character for those more confident/motivated.
Under application settings you can unlock characters just by learning the prerequisite items. That is, doing the lessons. This makes it at least you have exposure while changing the wait time to characters from day to minutes.
This allows one to get to the characters much faster
A concern is overwhelming users by having to juggle learning the sounds, components, and characters at the same time so we have this behind an option.
But the feedback about the frustration toward getting to the characters was equally valid, so hopefully this helps!
