Ratings and Reviews
I am educating myself in various topics including correct language articulation as this is vital in vocal communication. Dictionaries use a phonetic alphabet, utilizing characters from type sets of mechanical printing presses for correct pronunciation, which forms a unique language that later developed into the International Phonetic Alphabet.
AV Phonetics offers full comprehension of the International Phonetic Alphabet with charts, audio, animation, and interactive elements; with no required fee or advertisements..
I offer my gratitude and appreciation for this excellent and admirable educational reference application.
This app is amazing! The interface is neat and it's quite helpful to see the spectrogram. I just wish the pronunciation of non-pulmonic sounds can be added in the future.
