CNET: Google wants to help you pronounce words like ‘onomatopoeia’ correctly, report says

CNET: Google wants to help you pronounce words like ‘onomatopoeia’ correctly, report says. “Google is reportedly working on a feature that could spare you from embarrassing mispronunciations. The search giant may roll out a feature that shows you how to pronounce a word you’ve searched for, according to Android Police. For example, if you search for ‘onomatopoeia,’ a box will reportedly appear that directs you to a new search for ‘how to pronounce’ the word.” I did not learn to read like most people and I don’t read like most people now, and consequently I can’t pronounce anything. Looking forward to this.

      Although most schools use phonetic methods to teach reading, the best readers are visual readers who often know and can read many words without ever hearing them pronounced out loud. There is also a strong possibility of being a bad speller if you are a visual reader. There is an easy and effective reading remediation technique that supports learning to read visually called Neurological Impress. that I used in the ’70s with kids who had not been able to learn to read using phonetics.

      I think I’ll find this most useful for people’s names, to be honest.
