Blog entry Can you ever have too much Freerice?

05 August 2011

On Freerice, we aim for one thing: more rice. However, there are times when more rice is not necessarily good for Freerice or the people we help.

Only rice that is raised legitimately on Freerice, with real people playing the game and answering the questions, will help Freerice and do good in the world.

Blog entry Pronounced silence

14 July 2011

Dear Freericers,

In recent days, some of you may have noticed that the pronunciation tool is no longer working for vocabulary words. We had been using a free service that has suddenly changed its set-up.

We're working on a solution but, until we manage to resolve the problem, we have disabled the pronunciation functionality.

We'll keep you posted! (Just not out loud.)
