Notice: This Contains English Only Content. Spanish and German not included. This application was originally designed at the University of Iowa to help students learning how the sounds of different languages are produced. Since its production, it has become a milestone for phonetics teaching tools around the globe. Sounds of Speech™ provides a comprehensive understanding of how, physiologically, each of the speech sounds of American English is formed. It includes animations, videos, and audio samples that describe the essential features of each of the consonants and vowels of American English. Sounds of Speech™ is especially useful for students studying English as a second language. Features include:
User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
Love the idea of the app, I just wish I could pause the animations or view them in slow motion. My apraxia and dysarthria patients often require extra processing time, slowing it down would help their concept transfer!
I love this app!! I am a graduate student for speech and have used this app many times to double check place, manner and voice. The app is very user friendly and straight forward. I love the video examples in animation as well as the real life videos of people making each phoneme. The app is also visually pleasing with clear colors of each anatomical structure. A great tool during my schooling.
I was on the website where they have English Spanish and German, so thought the app would have German. Nope, it doesn’t. Yes, it says that in the description. My bad. But still really annoying. I hoped that I could count on it being updated with German someday, but apparently the latest update was 2 years ago, so figuring it won’t. Dang it. Update to add the animations of the voiceless stops and fricatives have voicing - “tuh” instead of “t” etc. This is terrible!! At least the videos are correct.
I was hoping this app would have all the features of the original web version. It is a very poor imitation. The web intro is misleading; it makes one think that Spanish phonetics are included. The fine print says not, but it's not a good practice to mislead. Also, the app version has this confusing, non-standard notation of IPA symbols (not in brackets, as if they were letters), and what I presume are letters as subscript. This notation is not explained anywhere that I can find. What is a beginner to make of this?
I teach English as a second language. The combination of 1) video, showing a close-up of a face pronouncing the sounds, and 2) animation, showing a side view of the inner workings of lips, teeth and tongue, makes this a wonderful resource for my students.
