Understanding Text Colors While Using Tarteel

When you use the Tarteel app for Quranic recitation and study, you will encounter various text colors. These colors are part of the app's features designed to help you with recitation accuracy and comprehension of the Quran. This guide will explain what these colors signify and how to interpret them.

Recitation Accuracy Indication

Tarteel provides real-time feedback on your recitation accuracy using specific colors. Here’s what these colors mean:

  • Red Text: Indicates an error in your recitation. If you see red text, it means a mistake has been detected in your pronunciation or recitation of the word or phrase.
  • Green Text: Signifies that your current recitation is correct. Green text indicates that you have accurately recited the word or phrase.
  • Yellow Text: Indicates a tashkeel (diacritics) mistake. If you see yellow text, it means there is an error in your pronunciation of the vowel marks.
  • Brown Text: Indicates a word you have peeked at. If you see brown text, it means you looked at the word for assistance.




How to Turn On/Off Mistake Detection

You can enable or disable the mistake detection feature in the app settings under the "Mistake Detection" option.

The 'Detect Mistakes' option will toggle all four text coloring options on or off, while the 'Detect Tashkeel (diacritics) Mistakes' option will specifically toggle only the yellow highlighting.




This text coloring for mistakes is separate from the mutashabihat text coloring.

Mutashabihat Detection

One of the premium features of Tarteel is the highlighting of mutashabihat—words or phrases in the Quran that have similar meanings or forms. When you enable the mutashabihat feature, you will see different colors applied to these words within a single ayah. Here’s how it works:

  • Color Groupings: Each set of mutashabihat in the Quran is assigned a distinct color. This helps you easily identify and differentiate them while reading.
  • Color Meaning: The specific colors used (such as dark blue, light blue, purple, orange, green, or red) do not have any inherent meaning. They are simply used to distinguish different sets of mutashabihat.

Repetition Across Ayahs: Tarteel uses a limited color palette to highlight the mutashabihat, which may result in the same colors appearing in different sets of mutashabihat. This repetition is purely due to the color limitations and does not imply any connection between the different sets of mutashabihat.





How to Turn On/Off Mutashabihat Highlighting

You can enable or disable the Mutashabihat highlighting feature in the app settings under the “Highlights" option or alternatively, you can turn off the icon at the bottom of the Mushaf recitation screen.






The text colors in Tarteel serve two main purposes:

  1. Recitation Feedback: Red text indicates errors in recitation, green text signifies correct recitation, yellow text highlights tashkeel (diacritics) mistakes, and brown text shows words you have peeked at. This text coloring for mistakes is separate from the mutashabihat color highlighting. You can turn this feature on or off in the app settings under "Mistake Detection."
  2. Mutashabihat Highlighting: Different colors help you identify similar words or phrases within an ayah. The colors themselves do not have specific meanings but are used to differentiate sets of mutashabihat. You can turn this feature on or off in the app settings under "Shared Phrases Highlighting

By understanding these color codes and knowing how to manage these settings, you can effectively use Tarteel to enhance your Quranic recitation and comprehension. Happy reciting!
