Pronouncing can be a difficult task for non-native English speakers. Even if you know English well, there are some words with difficult pronunciation. Google is constantly working to provide the best of services to web users. They have released a lot of updates and tools to simplify a lot of things. Now, the company is adding one more feature to let you hear the pronunciation of difficult words.
You can start practising the pronunciation of the difficult words vocally using this new feature. Currently, this feature supports American English and soon the same feature will add a new Spanish Language.
Most people enter a query with “how to pronounce something in American English.” Now, whenever you search for something like this on Google, you will see a hearing icon on the right side of the word with its meaning etc. Once you click on to the hearing or the speaker icon, you will be able to hear the pronunciation of that word.
Interestingly, this new pronouncing feature comes alongside the new image option and a video link. When you scroll down the page, you will be able to see the image of that word with the video link which will be redirected to YouTube upon clicking. For quick look-up, you just need to click on to the Speaker icon and the word will be pronounced correctly by this feature.
Everything included in this new feature is powered by Machine Learning technology. This fetches the information from Google’s own Speech Recognition feature and allows users to hear the pronunciation of the most difficult words.
As mentioned above, this feature is currently available in English language only and limited to nouns. “We hope these new features give you a creative, more effective way to practice, visualize and remember new words. We plan to expand these features to more languages, accents and regions in the future,” Google said in a statement.
Both of these features are very helpful as we all get frustrated whenever we are running out of our knowledge. We can now simply click the Speaker icon to know the pronunciation.
