As far as I know, neither does audible
Also, I came across editions (on audible) that do not match any printed version (like 化物語 being split into 3 instead of 2). The covers of the first and last part match the printed version (and obviously so does their titles), but the content doesn’t.
Well, hopefully, those issues would be few and far between.
Yeah our audible linking has been included in our book upload process, so it’s not really reproducible for audiobook.jp. Basically, our upload process usually looks at the kindle series page and / or the individual book page, which shows if there’s an audible edition.
Right, i’m sure there will still be issues, but I do think it’ll be much better than text matching. The issues we can solve by hand
Yeah, from my basic understanding, image matching (really image classification) is kinda the bread & butter for machine learning and where the hype for neural nets all got started… so I gotta think there’s an easy, out of the box solution here, but who knows.
@brandon – Is grading broken this morning? If I go to “grade items” in the menu, it shows me a pair of books to grade, but clicking one of the “harder” buttons just shows me the same pair of books again. Looking at “view gradings” shows that the grading did get recorded, and reloading the “grade items” page gives a new pair of books, so it looks like it just doesn’t correctly advance to a new grading pair? (The “skip this” button does advance to a different grading pair.)
Has anyone ever made a request to have a catchall kind of item for books that don’t have an isbn/aren’t available on Amazon (monthly magazines or doujin for example)? I’m not sure what to look up to see if a similar request has already been made.
A minor issue: the number of gradings doesn’t match. I guess it’s due to the limited number of gradings that are taken into account by the algorithm, but it’s a bit confushing when there are pages of comparisons just under where it says “11 gradings”.
eta: Further to this, I’ve noticed the number of gradings that appears above ‘Aggregate’ isn’t always the same, which I would have expected it to be if the algorithm only considers a specific number of ratings.
These have only been graded by me, but the number of 'algorithm' gradings vary quite a bit.
Unfortunately, that’s not the issue. The issue is going to audiobooks from a physical book / ebook… as they don’t have ISBNs. You’re right that they can have ASINs, but those will be distinct from anything I can look at in my database.
That’s good to know… but unfortunately I have no theories on why that would happen
Are all these additional gradings ‘extra’ gradings? I don’t currently count extra gradings in the grading count as I want people to be able to use the grading count as an indicator for how confident we are in a grading.
I assume so. I think it might be helpful to have a tooltip next to the ‘algorithm’ gradings to clarify this, as I think it could be confusing for (new) users who may not have read the page about gradings. It might look a bit odd to the casual user to have ‘11 gradings’ above a list of 100+ comparisons that are also labeled as gradings.
A question about this - Should this also have autopopulated all of the Audible links for books that were already in the database?
Some books have an Audible version listed on the book page on Amazon, but the audiobook is not listed on Natively (and therefore can’t be found via the audible search filter)
Examples: x, x, x, x, x
Any idea why?
