TTS – TEXT TO SPEECH – PRONUNCIATION HELP

SPEAKING GIF

Many of you have difficulty with English pronunciation. It isn’t just the individual words, but the rhythm and intonation of the English language, which is so different from Spanish.

The following website is a Text To Speech tool. Just type a short text, like this paragraph, choose a voice and listen.  I recommend Rachel’s or Graham’s voice.  But you can try all the British English voices.

The speech you hear is not perfect, but it will help you. Maximum text length is 300 characters.
