In one of my posts called Pronunciation apps (2017) I described a few tools whose affordances I had explored in my original research related to Mobile-Assisted Pronunciation Training in 2016 and 2017.
The table below includes web tools and mobile apps that I have explored over the past few years and applied in my teaching pronunciation – both receptive and productive skills. It is divided into subcategories as regards content and/or task type. All of the following can be used in raising awareness about diversity and intelligibility as well as teaching selected segmental features (sounds) and suprasegmental features (prosody) across the varieties of English. They can be also suitable for learners self-studying. Feel free to check them out at your convenience.
Please also note the compilation of links below is not exhaustive and is going to be updated as soon as I find a little bit more time. 😉
