Dict.org + voice wav to learn?


Hi,

We were facing the difficulty to speak with the right pronunciation.

The word "Butcher" how do you say it? dict.org has not the sounds of words. Would you eventually know a free as bier, - preferably Linux fan, powered, ... that would propose vocal English assistance?

thank you

I don't know of a program off-hand, but this website offers American English pronunciation:

For example: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/butcher
