Pronounce the names of your students and alumni correctly. See and hear the pronunciation of any name

Want to honor and impress your graduates? In a recent GradImages survey asking "What parts of commencement are important to you?", 86% of respondents said "being individually recognized, and hear their name (or their loved one's name) called over the public address system was important. This trounced all other ceremony elements by wide margins".

As a dean at an American or international university, you know how important commencement day is to your graduating students and their families. And you probably also know about the perennial problem of pronouncing the names of students correctly at commencement exercises, when you are faced with the daunting task of pronouncing names of students from many ethnic backgrounds.

We can help. We can give you pronunciations for every student, so that you can feel confident when you announce names at the podium during commencement.
For each pronunciation, we provide an intelligent phonetic spelling. Phonetic spellings that are provided by students are often inaccurate, since many students, especially non-native speakers, do not know how to produce a phonetic spelling.
We also provide highly intelligible audio generated by an English-speaking speech synthesizer. Audio that is recorded by students is often hard to understand if the speaker has a heavy foreign accent or speaks in poor or noisy acoustic conditions.

We have a solid track record: universities have been using our services since 2007. We work closely with you to make sure you get what you need.
