I’m studying OBOD bardic course work, and come across some words I need to hear and understand it’s pronunciation this app has come in very handy for those words which I to translate into English.

False advertising! Most Languages aren’t here!

poked me good's Review of Forvo Pronunciation

Reviewed on 7/24/18 12:49 AM

I bought this app because it claimed to be the largest pronunciation database. It may very well be but it doesn’t cover most languages- absolutely nothing here for me. It should say it is mainly for people who want to learn how to pronounce American English words. Being an American, this is of no use to me!

Website is more useful

Animex49's Review of Forvo Pronunciation

Reviewed on 7/23/18 2:58 AM

I’ll admit I haven’t taken a long time to try to work with this, but it was very frustrating. I like it on the web, because I can look up all kinds of words, and languages other than the usual 4 or 5 Western European languages. But if you get outside of those languages, there’s almost nothing there. I was really disappointed. It wasn’t even worth the two or three dollars that I paid for it. It’s a waste of time for me.

Great for me!

江纳斯's Review of Forvo Pronunciation

I speak Silesian German, a small dialect of German. And upon seeing that it wasn't on the site, I emailed them and they promptly added it! Now I can add pronunciations for these words really easily!

Doesn’t worth 1 cent

Raheemooh's Review of Forvo Pronunciation

Reviewed on 6/4/18 11:27 AM

My first language is Arabic, I’ve noticed a problem with some “category work” and “spelling small vowels -Harakat-“ and those problems could be fetal if you don’t notice. A collage could become a kidney! And vice versa, hundreds of words could be contaminated like that. Otherwise, the service is incredibly useful, it helps me with my second language -English-, also with my hobby languages (Japanese, Korean) and also with any sudden interest in how a word is pronounced in any language. Finally, about the app. I really find the design more comfortable than the website. But I have two complaint: First being an able to record my reading for a word that has been recorded. Second, I can’t report or edit a word writing wrong or easily confused between two meanings; sometimes I want to make both pronunciations and writing much clearer.

It doesn’t work in iPhone

I would like if there were a “stay signed in” option. When I exit the app, it logs me out automatically. I’d like to stay logged in.

Useful but crappy app

As a paid member logged in, app got frozen or crashed all the time. So often to the point of annoying me and making me write this review here. Please fix it as this is a useful app for all of us who like to learn a new language with actual human pronunciation! Thanks

James in AZ's Review of Forvo Pronunciation

Reviewed on 2/5/18 12:34 AM

Would be better if would work in landscape mode on the iPad, most of use use the iPad more like a computer now and i have disconnect the keypad to use. Wish the most popular recording of a word would come up first and not have to go down through several menus to retrieve. Otherwise good app for language learners.
