Forvo

I bet you always wished you knew how different people around the world pronounce 'antidisestablishmentarianism'. Well, thankfully, now the wait is over. Forvo is the largest pronunciation guide in the world. Forvo has over a half a million oral pronunciations of words recorded by people all over the world.

If you have ever wondered how a word is pronounced in different parts of the world you can now just type that word into Forvo. Forvo then displays a Google Map showing you all the available recorded pronunciations of the world and where they were recorded.

So if you want to know how an Englishmen says 'Google Maps' just type it into Forvo and select the appropriate map marker from the map.
