Enter Your Memory Verses with the Mnemonic

Time Posted on June 07, 2012 User Andy

Alex has added a new feature which should enable you to get through your memory verses a bit quicker on those days when you're in a bit of rush. You can now enter just the first letter of each word in the memory verse and Memverse will treat it as though you've typed the entire verse. Memverse will automatically detect when you've entered this mode so feel free to use it whenever you need it.

You can also use it for sections of a memory verse that you know well. As soon as you type two single letters (seperated by a space), Memverse will assume that you've switched to mnemonic mode.

It will also be very helpful for those of you using an iPad (and for those of you brave enough to use your phones!).

We recommend not getting too attached to this feature as it does make it a bit easier for inaccuracies to slip in to your memorizing.

Awesome! I didn't do my verses yet today, so I went right over and tried it out. :) Thank you!

Awesome new feature, Alex! Since I work in an office daily, I can type the whole verse in about as much time as it takes me to think through the mnemonics; but I'm confident this new option will come in handy for a lot of people. It may be especially useful when learning brand new passages of Scripture and you don't have all of the Thy Vs. Thine parts perfectly memorized yet.

Thanks Alex! This is going to be so helpful. I mostly use my phone to do Memverse, because the only time I can find to work on them, uninteruped , is really early in the morning and I don't want to take to time to turn on the computer!
God Bless!

Dakota - Sounds good. I think my typing speed has improved dramatically just from using Memverse :) One caveat is that if the first letter prompts are visible, one can't use the first letter typing mode, since that would be a bit too easy; so depending on how the first letter prompts are setup in your account, it may or may not help with the Thy vs. Thine parts when the verse is new.

Thanks so much! I was just thinking recently that it would be nice to be able to type the first letter on rush days! Thanks again...I'm off to try it out ;)

EDIT: it's not working for me...am I doing something wrong???

Sweet! Great feature, Alex - can't wait to try it out - unfortunately I probably won't be able to until tomorrow, as we are going to Six Flags today because our tickets expire on the 11th. :( Oh well, I'll be able to work on BB verses on the way! :)

EDIT: It's not working for me either.

Rachel & BBJ12 - Did you try it with a verse that didn't have first-letter prompts? And did you put a space or other punctuation after typing the first letter?

This is neet! I will use it for my Bible Bee verses the most because that is how the sword drill was last year for the Bible Bee.

I'm having problems getting it working too Alex...

Rachel Irene

I clicked the little "x' on the prompt box, and I did put spaces in between the letters. When I started typing 1 letter, it looked like this: ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... and so on.
Am I doing something incorrect?

Matthew - I'll look for your issue on Get Satisfaction (Feedback tab). You can give us more information over there and we'll see what we can do. Thanks!

Rachel - It only works if the prompts don't show up at all. You can't close the prompt box and then type the first letters, since then you've already seen the first letters...

oh okay. I'll switch it and see if that works.

EDIT: I turned off prompts under my profile and now it works. Thanks!

This is a great feature and it's very helpful for my little brother who can't type well. However, it would be really great if I could turn it off in my own account, as it messes up my system of using Memverse. If you can't make it optional, that's fine, of course.

@Alex - sweet! Thanks - that'll help.

I really like the new mnemonic way, Alex! So much faster. :D

I turned the option in my profile for prompts to "Never" and then back to "Learning", and now it is working. Thank you for this feature!

Glad you guys got it working.

Hannah - Remember that it won't register a first letter as a word until you press the space bar or a punctuation mark... so if you never want to use it, just don't press the space bar or a punctuation mark until you're done typing the whole word.

I've be a little behind in my reviewing, so when I started typing yesterday, it was strange to have Memverse finishing words for me. This is a nice touch, and can be a great help, but you're right Andy. Say for example you mean "Be" instead of "Because." You typed the first two letters, but you had the wrong word. All this means is that you (myself included) should not give yourself full credit for that verse until you memorize the correct words. Other then that good idea Alex.

Is this feature not meant to work on verses with feedback disabled?

It doesn't work on my account! I have turned off my first letter prompts (and have turned them on!)
If I am typing 1 Corinthians 10:31 I type S(space) and it does nothing but put .... How do i get it to work? This would be so helpful to use for my IPod! If I could figure it out!! :)

Haha! So the first few times i read this post I read one word. I see it's two now. Wow! Apparently, I need a class in paying attention!

Alex Watt

Matthew - I'll need to check on that. I can't remember now....

Kylie - Actually, we tweaked the feature and then I edited the post -- so it wasn't your attention :)

EDIT: Matthew - I think it should work even with feedback disabled so that if you type the first letter of every word, then when you get to the end of the verse, it should register as correct. If it doesn't (and your first-letter prompts are also turned off), then let us know and we'll try to sort it out.

This is a great idea! I actually triggered it a couple of times and thought it was a mistake that had somehow crept in to the system :-) Glad it is supposed to be there -- it will be very helpful when I am typing out chapters such as Romans 16 with all those names. Although it's probably a good thing it wasn't available when I was trying to remember how myrrh was spelled -- I might have given up (ha!)

This is helpful but could help me not to memorize my verses as well.

It's working with feedback disabled verses now. For some reason, either it wasn't working yesterday, or I missed an error that I made in the text box.

Thanks again for this awesome tool! I am now able to get review done faster so I can have more time doing Bible Bee on www.quizlet.com!

This feature sounds helpful, but I have found a different way to practice my verses. I don't like to type so I have been using windows speech recognition instead. This has worked well for me with a few exceptions. I'm currently memorizing Isaiah 40 using the new King James version. No matter how many times I've tried to get it corrected it in windows speech recognition, the software never gets the word "crooked" right in verse four. It usually spells it as "croaked". Overall though, I find it to be much better than typing.
Thank you so much for Memverse! It is a real blessing to me.

When I'm in my dashboard /profile or whatever u call it, it says I haven't memorized, so how do I memorize verses???

E722bfd45297b0c0558ed8ed53593094?d=wavatar
Alex Watt

Justin - It can take a while for verses to be marked as Memorized, but the way to get there is to click "Review" in the menu bar at the top of every page. When you're done typing a verse, you can click one of the numbers 1-5 to rate your recall of the verse. Please click the little blue "i" button next to the numbers if you're not sure what each one means.

If you're rating all your verses with the 5 button, you should see them memorized in about a month. If you're using the other buttons, it takes longer.

Verses are marked memorized when the time that you need between reviews, without forgetting the verse, is greater than 30 days.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
