Pronunroid - IPA pronunciation


★★★★★

Pronunroid is an educational game that makes practicing English phonetics more fun!

It's aimed at practicing IPA (International Phonetics Alphabet) transcription of English words using General American accent. It has four main parts:

* Guess symbol: In this game, you are presented with three words that share a phonetic symbol which you have to guess.

* Guess pronunciation: In this game you are presented with a written word and you have to write the pronunciation for it in IPA.

* Guess spelling: In this game you are presented with the pronunciation of a word in IPA and you have to write the corresponding word. This, in addition to training your pronunciation skills, trains your spelling!

* Look up word: This function looks up the IPA pronunciation of a word.

Pronunroid is aimed at English as second language (ESL) learners. You can check out the symbols used at Wikitionary.

Right now, Pronunroid uses for the games the 2000 most common English words. However, you can try to look up the pronunciation of any word with the search feature. If Wordnik is aware of different pronunciations, you will get them all.

best friend in your time of need Best app to help you do better in your phonetics course. The only shortcoming of this app is that by putting a little description for each sound, how it's made and which articulators are in act it would've been a great app.
