Ratings and Reviews
Howsay accurate and clear
When it comes to pronunciation, the internet is the Wild West. They just take a few people and have them say the word and don’t check to see how correct the pronunciation is. Frequently, I feel their method of saying the word is incorrect. I go to many sources to see what is the real standard. I find the Oxford Dictionary is very good, (sometimes swayed too much by Britain’s pronunciations), American heritage is excellent but Howsay is almost always right on!
Great learning tool for those suffering with a learning disability
This is a great app to use if you suffer with dyslexia. Sometimes hearing to the words pronounced aids with the learning the phonics of the words. Also, useful to see the words broken down in phonics and definition, then listen to the app pronunciation ensuring you have pronounced the word correctly.
Great sounding tool!
Thanks for expanding your word base to the more complex and difficult words too. I also appreciate that you make your app compatible with iOS 9 on my older iPad. This is a worthwhile tool to subscribe to, if you want clear and precise British articulation of English words. I would like to hear more differentiations between British and American pronunciations though.
