This can be a very useful tools to hear a word or expression pronounced by a native speaker. It is useul to compare how a word's pronunciation may be different depending on the region. The site can be used by language learners, tourists, travelers and linguists.

The volunteer approach is  very appealing.

Technical Remarks:

easy to use
