FAQ

How do I copy the results line by line to Word?

For now “Side by side with English text” is your best option if you are going to copy it somewhere else. For best results you will have to break up the original text by lines though.

Why [r] instead of [ɹ]?

The website provides phonemic transcription. Since there is no rolling [r] sound in English language and therefore no confusion between the two, API recommends using ‘r’ for simplicity. Most dictionaries do just that.

Can I download the speech audio?

Not at the moment. The speech you hear is generated by your browser, so potentially there might be extensions capturing browser’s audio, but you will have to search extension repository of the browser you are using for that.

Is there an API?

Not at the moment, although not ruled out in the future. We understand it’s a popular feature request, but we need to come up with some logistic solution for managing the server workload.

Good job, but the sounds don’t work on Firefox and Brave browsers.

Thanks for your reply.

There are my system configuration:

Brave Versión 1.20.103 Chromium: 88.0.4324.152 (Build oficial) (64 bits)
Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS
Version GNOME 3.36.8

I don’t know if I need to install any packet via terminal or any extension on my browser…

Thanks for your time. 😉

I am trying to cite this page in a paper, but I cannot figure out who is the publisher of this site? Can you provide the sponsor of the site?

Any luck with narrow transcriptions? Would be far more useful!

Sometimes the words are incorrectly spelled according to the RP (British): here the “ɛ” sound is proposed instead of “e”, but the latter is correct.

Hiya, just want to say I’m super impressed with this website. It even handles super obscure words like “aerodrome”.

It would be awesome if this site could be used to improve Wiktionary.

What is the data source for this website? What license is that source/this website released under?

Wiki-X websites try to make sure that everything on is accessed very legally.

Thanks,
Jack

What do I do for cases like “tear” or “cleanly” where there are multiple correct pronunciations? The site only seems to give one?
