Make mispronunciations a thing of the past with the world’s most accurate and comprehensive pronunciation dictionary.

Unlike most other apps no synthetic pronunciation is used, with every word carefully researched, and professionally recorded.

"What I love is it uses a real human voice for audio playback, and has words for pronunciation that my dictionary apps don't even have for definitions."

"I feel like I now have a secret, powerful, linguistic advantage!"

■ Over 175,000 individually recorded words & phrases
■ Comprehensive dictionary including medical, legal, scientific, industry jargon and even current affairs and names
■ Accurate pronunciation of heteronyms (words which are spelled the same but pronounced differently depending on context) e.g, tear, dove, close, live, alternate, etc
■ Auto-complete and spelling suggestions
■ Search online to retrieve latest additions to the dictionary
■ Pronunciation history
■ Search definitions online

All for the price of a coffee!

I never cease to be amazed by this app. It has never let me down. The most obscure words are included, including medical terminology. For anyone who loves language, or for those who insist on perfect pronunciation, this app is a must.

Love this app

There is just one downside for me only, it should have the option choosing the British or American accent. Confuses me more as English is not my first language, being the reason to purchase this app.

Great app for both professionals and academic use

I’m a nurse and how J say has been of a great help with all those strange medical teams. Not only that it help pronounce the word, it help me break word and I will be recognise the phonetic sound
