In consulting with my Italian dictionary, I thought this app was accurate in terms of open/closed vowels, but there are no stresses.
I love it but it needs improvment
Please make it work with drag and drop on ios 11. It is very important! Thank you!
Please update this wonderful app. I will suggest it to all of my singer and conductor friends!
This gets most everything right, but is very inconsistent with the most frustrating facets of Italian diction -- open vs. closed E/O and voiced vs. unvoiced z/zz. It has the most basic ones, but not everything.
