Make mispronunciations a thing of the past with the world’s most accurate and comprehensive pronunciation dictionary. Unlike most other apps no synthetic pronunciation is used, with every word carefully researched and professionally recorded.
"What I love is it uses a real human voice for audio playback, and has words for pronunciation that my dictionary apps don't even have for definitions."
"I feel like I now have a secret, powerful, linguistic advantage!"
■ Over 170,000 individually recorded words & phrases
■ Comprehensive dictionary including medical, legal, scientific, industry jargon and even current affairs and names
■ Accurate pronunciation of heteronyms (words which are spelled the same but pronounced differently depending on context) e.g, tear, dove, close, live, alternate, etc
■ Auto-complete and spelling suggestions
■ Search online to retrieve latest additions to the dictionary
■ Pronunciation history
■ Search definitions online
All for the price of a coffee!
Note: An internet connection is required to download the audio and perform new searches, as the Howjsay database is too large to download and is continuously updated.
What's New in Version 9.9
I use Howjsay on the daily! Words that I haven't understood the full meaning of or new words are always found in this app. The entomology feature has solved a lot of friendly arguments between myself and friends about the origin of certain words. Can't live without it!
I read a lot and there are often words that are rarely used in day to day speech but frequently used in print. It is really helpful to know the correct pronunciation in case I wish to use the term in the future.
This app was awesome when I was taking a medical terminology class. Knowing the correct pronunciation of words made it so much easier to remember terms and definitions.
