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!
I never write reviews... ...but this is one of the very few apps I've ever paid for and it's been worth every dime, even as a doctorate-holding native English speaker. This should be considered the gold standard of English pronunciation and I've used it as such for many years. He researches and personally records each word himself, including standard regional variants. FYI the website is free if you can't afford the app.
Quality British pronunciations I use this app and the howjsay website when looking up medical words and I think only on one occasion in the last two years have I not found the word I was after. The pronunciations are from a real person. He also gives the American pronunciation where there is a substantial difference, although I don't know how comprehensive that feature is as it is not of interest to me.
