NameShouts might just be a big help when you travel next—especially if you’ve ever found yourself having trouble pronouncing someone’s name. NameShouts helps you pronounce a person’s name correctly, as it would be by native speakers, and it’s free.
Just type in a person’s full name (there are over 14,000 names in their database) and the language (they have 14 languages), and the search results will display best matches, and for each match, three things: Pronunciation, phonetic spelling and the gender of the name (if available). There’s also a “Slow Mode” button to slow down pronunciation so you can hear it better.
No more guessing if the person you’re emailing is a male or female, and no more (or at least less) embarrassing yourself when you meet new people. Thanks, NameShouts.
