Improve your english pronunciation using our speech recognition enabled software.
This app gives you feedback on how to improve your English pronunciation
It is important to minimize background noise.
Once you speak a sentence you are able to swipe over the audio wave form and tap on the word sections to see how you performed on specific words.
You can also tap on both your or the example phoneme to see how you did.
Make sure your volume is turned up and be sure to tap the record to start, and then to end once you are finished speaking the sentence!
√√√√√ Amazing application (kavafianos)
After practicing with this application for a week I can actually talked, dictated to my iPhone and iPad and been understood, really good application for anybody who wants To improve their accent and speaking skills even if it is good and need just a little touch up
√√√√√ Love it, very very helpful for people who like me from other country..... (Juihua)
√√√√√ working great....love it.thank you (I_java)

√√√√√ For a non English person, I find this app extremely useful to improve the pronunciation dramatically. The star feature is the evaluation, after repeating a phrase the app tells you how well you said each word and entering the word tells you the same in each sound. (Adrian)
What's New in Version 1.7
-Fixed a crash issue when recording
Not fully functioning, could be awesome
This app is exactly what I have been looking for - but it doesn't exactly work. I love how it lets you analyze each word that has been spoken, and compare it with the correct pronunciation, however, sometimes the beginning and/or end sounds get cut off, which can be confusing. The ability to manually adjust the slider could resolve this. Most of the preloaded sentences are geared toward adults, but the ability to add your own custom sentences is excellent. The problem then, is the limited number of custom sentences allowed, the inability to delete sentences you no longer want, and the inability to edit a sentence if there was a typo. There is also no way to add commas to sentences. I am also confused about how to use the custom sentences, since it appears to overwrite the original recording. There is an extremely limited help menu and the developer website appears to have been closed. I can see a lot of potential in this app and I am really disappointed that it does not work as expected. I would be willing to pay for a version of this app that had just a few minor updates, and then give it 5 stars.
I really like this app. I'm a teacher, and I can see lots of positive things students can do with it. I LOVE the fact that I can create a lesson, but then I think this is completely useless since I can't share it with my students. What am I supposed to do? Pass my iPad around so everybody has a chance to practice? I think this is the one biggest drawback. Instead of twitting something as empty as "I'm using English pronunciation", we should be able to share links so people can access our lessons.
My two cents on this app. Like it very much for self-study, anyways.
Best app out there for nonnative speakers. It lets you know what word needs more practice. It tells you the sentence, let's you recorded it and than gives you your score...but you have the option to analyze every single word you said. Perfect! Just what I need it! Thank you.
