Voz Me!

Look what I have discovered in Monica's blog!



"VozMe" is an online tool that offers applications and services to convert text into speech. Write any word, sentence or text you want to listen in English and "VozMe" will generate a MP3 either to listen or to record!



Think of the possibilities with your students to listen to the pronunciation of the words they don't know.




Listen to male and female pronunciation!
