Pronunciator Web

The Pronunciator web version works in any modern browser. There is an app for HTML5, and an app that uses Flash. Both apps have near-equal feature parity. Both apps need JavaScript and Cookies enabled. The HTML5 version will work in mobile browsers, though there are known issues that are beyond our control at this time. The Flash version will not work in mobile devices. Fortunately, there are apps specifically programmed for mobile devices available (see below).

Apps

Pronunciator has natively programmed apps for all Apple, Android, and Kindle Fire devices.

Before using the apps, the patron needs to register via your website’s Pronunciator link and obtain a “Student name” (aka user name) and “Password.” With these credentials, they can log into any of the apps and progress will automatically be synced across all the devices they use Pronunciator on.

The apps can be downloaded via this link: https://www.pronunciator.com/go-mobile/
