“This is a fantastic learning tool for really getting students to work on the specific sounds in words as well as taking into account stress and intonation. The visualisation is a very useful way to illustrate areas that need more attention and can be practised again and again. As an ESL teacher, I have recommended it to all my students so that they can work on their pronunciation skills at home and have used it in class on many occasions.” Anna D, Bristol, UK

Perfect developers with great products!

The only problem has been solved quickly! When I used the app say it from Oxford at noon, after I paid for American English word, I could not download. The app told me unable to reach server while there was nothing wrong with my internet connection. Then I sent an email to kind developers, just after several hours the problem was solved. Now I am going to enjoy it! The developers are really great because they do care customers! i'm greatly impressed by the efficiency with which them addressed this issue.

Can't cancel free subscription

There's no way to cancel the subscription through the app. I emailed the company and they didn't answer. So I got charged for a one-year subscription when the free period ended. It took me 15 minutes to figure out how to cancel it through my AppleID account. A lot of customers probably end up paying for this for years before they even realize it. Also App has false advertising. It says it supports American English but really once you start using it you see it barely supports American English at all. It's a pronunciation app and it's almost all British English so I can't use it for my students.

Developer Response ,

Hello, sorry to hear if was difficult for you to cancel your subscription - if you could get in touch at, we'd like to hear more about your experience so that we can improve things for our customers in future. The app includes 36,000+ American English pronunciations from Oxford University Press, with IPA sounds in American English for each entry. We plan to add more American English content over the coming months. We would genuinely welcome your feedback, as a teacher, on the kinds of features you would have liked to see in the app - so please do get in touch! The Say It Team
