“Speaky Reads” Looks Like A Nice New Site For ELLS & Other Language Learners
Speaky Reads looks like a very useful site for language learners, and it’s free – for now (it looks like they might charge in the future.
It has a library that appears for now to be comprised of literature in the public domain (hopefully, that will expand).
You choose a text, and then have a few options. You can follow along as it reads to you . You could also record what you just read and compare it to the recording you just heard (it would be really wonderful if it used Artificial Intelligence to assess the pronunciation – see THE BEST SITES FOR ONLINE PRONUNCIATION FEEDBACK – DO YOU KNOW OTHERS?). Finally, it offers a “dictation” mode, where you listen to the reading and fill-in the blanks (you can adjust the number of blanks).
I’m adding it to The Best Sites For ELLs To Practice Online Dictation.
