Now I can perfect my speech like a native for free!!!


Recommended Posts

Hi co-learner! I have finally found two online tools I can use in conjunction to compare any male or female voices (very good) with my own. I can paste any text in many languages and for free. There is a fee for larger use. I can even change the speech rate and and the voice shaping. Iit's really a must to perfect our pronunciation like a native!

Here are the links:

https://acapela-box.com/AcaBox/index.php

https://www.speakpipe.com/voice-recorder

Description of both services by the providers:

"The acapela-box service immediately converts any text into an audio file by using the high-quality text-to-speech voices by Acapela Group."

"SpeakPipe voice recorder allows you to create an audio recording directly from a browser by using your microphone. The recording is produced locally on your computer, and you can record as many times as you need. There is the option to save your recording on the SpeakPipe server and get a link to it, so you can send it via email or use on the web."

I hope this can be useful to you.

Feel free to share your experience here,

waldan

Hello, thank you so much for the helpful links. I decided to give it a try. My teacher sent me the homework in pdf file. I wanted to use your link to hear the pronunciation, but I couldn't copy the text from the pdf file because it has a screenshot. What should I do...?

Oh, it's pretty easy. I didn't know how to copy text from a picture or screenshot before either, and I did a lot of work because I rewrote text from a picture. But just recently I came across a site that lets you convert a screenshot to text. I am happy that I found this site, because it made my life much easier.

      大家好!I wanted to share my free pop-up dictionary that allows you to learn Chinese while watching your favorite shows on Netflix and reading on the web. You can bookmark new words and export them to flashcard decks. Both ‘s’ and ‘b’ will save/bookmark words.
      You can download the extension for free here:

      Here’s also a short video tutorial on how to use it:

      Learn new languages by reading anything you choose.
      This was inspired by other site/projects like the opensource Lwt, the closed source lingq etc...
      Here's how it works:
      - You import any text you want. - When you read, there's a built-in dictionary which allows to quickly get its translation.  - LingLibre marks in the text this word as saved with a particular color. The more you read, the more words appear as 'known'. There are still more functions as:
      importing from other software like lwt, exporting to Anki Suggestion of similar words to the words you've already saved integration of Google translate to translate the whole sentence direct import of webpage, PDF, EPUB etc... keyboard shortcuts for very fast reading statistics etc...

      Dear fellow Forum-Users,
      I would like to inform you about a tool I recently programmed (in PHP*) to create interlinear texts, which can then be used in language learning e.g. with the Birkenbihl-Method - (here you can find more information on the Birkenbihl-method: http://www.vidactic.com/?page_id=868)
      * thus it needs to run on a web-server or on a local server
      The software was intended to create interlinear texts, that can then be printed out and sold in paper-form to people.
      I created a github repository with the software. (You can access the repository here: https://github.com/p-freeman/Interlinear-Text-Creator)
      However, as I don't have access to a computer as of now, I didn't yet completely upload the whole contents of the folder "phpqrcode" (the folder "cache" is still missing). If someone could download the software "phpqrcode" to his computer (from here: http://phpqrcode.sourceforge.net/) and then add the missing files to the repository, that would be great. Otherwise, please just be patient until I can get access to a computer to add the missing files myself.
      Then, once the repository is ready, the software can be downloaded and installed on a webserver or operated locally e.g. on Android with the app "AWebServer" (which also has a php web-server included).
      Then you can add your own texts and with the software create your own interlinear texts, which can then be used in language-learning. Afterwards you can open the created html-page with Chrome (e.g. on Android) and click on share and then print and then you can print it as pdf. Then you can print out this pdf and offer it on sale to other people.
      An explanation of how to exactly use the tool (especially the input syntax that the software uses) can be found in the README.md-file in the github-repository.
      Greetings and have a nice evening,
      Peter
