Ever have trouble pronouncing difficult words in a script? Check this out !!!

If you're like me, you occasionally come across a word in a script that you have NEVER seen before.

I was voicing a spot the other day for a recycling company ...contained within the script was the word "nonferrous" ...well, you may be familiar ...but it was a new one on me.

....so, I started searching the web for clues on pronunciation and came across a website that may be helpful to us all:
If you haven't already found a site like this, check this out and bookmark it to your favorites.

If you know of others that might be better than this one ...please let us all know in the comment section

Thanks so much for this one! I just put it in my web "favorites" under my DIALECTS folder. Also check out www.WordReference.com is a free online translation dictionary. Also checi out http://web.ku.edu/idea/ - this is a WONDERFUL site for hearing authentic dialects from many regions of the U.S.A. plus dialects from countries around the world. Thanks again!
