    Default Pronunciation tools online

    I would like to know whether there is any online tool for practicing pronunciation. My students managed to find some, but their functions are pretty limited. What they want to do is to turn on their microphones, pronounce a certain word, and make sure that their pronunciation is right.

    If you happen to know any of the sites, please share the link.

    Thank you

    Are you looking for software that can say whether their pronunciation is correct? If so, I don't know of anything that can do that reliably.

    Hi,

    Are you looking for online tools only?
    There are desktop software or smart phone apps... but not sure if that's what you are looking for.

    As the administrator rightly points out, there aren't any reliable products to provide feedback on spoken pronunciation.
    I would encourage you to play around with my free site EnglishAccentCoach . It is a proven game-like method for improving pronunciation, but is based on training listening/identification of vowels. Once a learner can hear a sound, they can monitor their own pronunciation!
