This site is not free anymore. One has to downloaded using GooglePlay or the APP Store. It costs $3.99. It is really a shame because it was a great site when it was available online.

I wish I had found this website two semesters ago when I almost did not make it through my graduate Phonetics course! This sight is a really great resource to have at home, especially for students who are visual learners like myself. The website provides descriptions and visuals of all of the important aspects of phonology (manner, place, voice) for consonants and vowels in American English, Spanish and German.

Technical Remarks:

I am working for an iMac and did not have any trouble accessing this website or its videos. Very nice set up!

This site is ideal for the student that is having trouble making the connection
between phonology and pronunciation. It offers very useful animated libraries of
sounds in both the English and Spanish Language. As a speaker of both Spanish
and English, the site is very accurate, and has led me to better understand
phonetics in both languages

Technical Remarks:

One drawback to site is that it takes very updated software to run. I have tried
to run the English sounds on a few computers around my University, and the
system was not able to handle the English Sounds library
