Very helpful The only problem is that it cannot be used offline.
Really like the browser version Have been using the browser version for many years on my notebook. The best site for English pronunciation as far as I know. The site does not work on my phone, so I purchased the app. Happy to donate, but I would gladly pay 4 times more for a more intuitive app and an offline database (even if it is several 100 Mb in size). Currently the app does not seems to do anything more than just sending the text string to their database and returning the (good quality) voice prompt.
Well worth the money! It's a good one! The voices you hear are real people speaking! Can you imagine that? No automated pronunciations allowed! I use a dictionary app on pretty much a daily basis for severeal reasons. But sometimes, especially if it's a more complex word, their pronunciation isn't clear - like it's dropped a letter or there's an overlap of syllables. This is a refreshing change not only because I'm getting a clearer pronunciation, but I can get a quick translation and pronunciation in a number of foreign languages.
Wow We just purchased a book published in the late 1800's and ran into a word that isn't used anymore. The meaning was easy to decipher but not the pronunciation. I downloaded this app just for that purpose, but the word was not here. I emailed at the provided address...within hours I received a reply to say the word is now included! How cool is this!! 😊 ...AND they just added etymology for moi! LOVE this app!!! 8 ☆s.
Brilliant I work in learning support in an FE college. I recommend this app to students studying science subjects and struggling with reading and pronouncing biology, anatomy & physiology words. These students all say they have found Howjsay really helpful. Best app ever!
