Forvo: The Pronunciation Dictionary

 Forvo is a pronunciation dictionary that is intended to help the world communicate better. The online database allows users to search a database of over 1.4 million words pronounced by native speakers. Each entry features a Map that reveals the geographic origin of words and the option to either stream or download the pronunciation as an MP3 file. Users can search words individually, by language, parts of speech, or fields of study such as science, medicine, or the arts. The database supports those interested in learning new languages or simply building their vocabulary.
