You probably think that you pronounce English perfectly until you watch an American movie in its original version or a British TV series. That's when you realize that you haven't got a clue about real-life English and that your pronunciation is terribly bad. Learning a new language at an advanced age can be complicated and if your teacher isn't a native, even worse, you don't stand a chance. If you want to make yourself understood, the best thing you can do is practice, practice, and practice even harder. How? Speak+ offers you a fast and simple solution.
Learn how to pronounce words in different foreign languages.
How the hell am I meant to pronounce that difficult word? Just write it into the program's box and choose the corresponding language. As easy as that. By default, quite a few languages will be preinstalled on your computer but if the one you want isn't available, you'll have to go to the Windows Control Panel, and choose the option Add a Language in the Clock, Region, and Language section. Check the Add a Language box and choose amongst the dozens of languages available. Furthermore, each language has dozens of possible accents. The installation process may be somewhat slow but the result is very worthwhile.
Speak+ vs Google Translate
So it sounds cool but Google Translate already does all this stuff without having to install anything. So what advantages can it offer me? Basically that you won't need to be online to listen to the pronunciations. And not only that because with Speak+ you can change the reading pace and the voice to make it higher or lower pitched according to your needs and tastes. You can also save sentences that you want to hear again in the future.
