New Google Search Feature Teaches People How to Pronounce Words
December 19, 2018 / Matt Southern
Google has been spotted testing a feature that teaches searchers how to pronounce words. When searching for a phrase like “how to pronounce compunction,” Google may return a box at the top of the page with a ‘learn to pronounce’ button. Tapping on the button lets users hear the word being pronounced and watch a visualization of lip movements. Users can also hear a slowed down version, and switch between American and British accents. The screenshot above was shared in a Reddit thread just a few days ago. Only one person who replied to the thread said they were able to replicate it.
