Excellent. "Guess word" has been tremendously useful to me. This game just made me exercise in a way I've never before had the opportunity, I could watch videos, research, read textbooks and articles, but this gives a new way to understand pronunciation. "Guess pronuciation" I don't like it, it's too hard, because there is too many ways to transcribe or interpret in IPA any word, for example the schwa can go in a lot of the unstressed syllables of any words, there is words with more than 1 pronunciation. It would be better if it would say it's correct despite this errors, if it would detect it's a possible plausible transcription. It requires some algorithm but it shouldn't be too hard to add a minimal intelligence to filter the most obvious alternatives spellings. Request: Add much more words to "guess word" (such as 10000 most common).

UPDATE: The developer responded, "Yes, there's no function to pronounce IPA, sorry." I raised my stars from 1 to 3 because they responded. Maybe they will add that functionality? 🙄🥺 I found a website that does pronunciation from IPA. 😕🤔 ORIGINAL: Where's the function to pronounce the IPA? This app only offers one-way translation : to IPA.

Yes, there's no function to pronounce IPA, sorry.
The app is good but lately it says that I need internet connection to translate sounds, but I don't understand, I'm connected, every other app works just fine with the connection, this gives me a headache.

Thank you for reporting the bug. Version 4.0.1 should fix that.
