It would be nice to have a way to show aspiration in words. For example, pin turns into pʰɪn when the “Show aspiration” option is turned on.

But also have exceptions for some words when the “Show aspiration” is on, for example: span, spin, stop.

Thanks.

Provide a link for the translated audio.
Pronounce a phonetically spelled word instead of an English word.

It would be nice if there was a way to highlight a specific sound on both the text and transcription. For instance, if I want to highlight /æ/, it would display “Apples and oranges are different fruits”, “ˈæpᵊlz ænd ˈɒrɪnʤɪz ɑː ˈdɪfᵊrᵊnt fruːts”.

That way I could quickly identify which words contain a sound I’m practising, instead of manually search for the specific sound, copy-pasting the text on Word and highlighting it myself there.

Indicate and categorize non-standard utterances: defect, affect, accent, idiosyncratic, foreign, dialect variation, “just plain wrong,” etc. Identify any processes in play: voice assimilation, anticipatory co-articulation, etc. Thanks!

It would be great to type words in French, German and Spanish and for the IPA symbols of those words to appear.
