Sounds of Speech – Phonetics: The Sounds of American English

The Iowa “Sounds of Speech” website contains animated libraries of the phonetic sounds of English and other languages. App versions for Android & iOS are also available under the name Sounds of Speech. On both the website and in the app, for each English consonant and vowel, viewers will find an animated articulatory diagram, a step-by-step description, and video-audio of the sound spoken in context. The animated side view of the mouth is particularly helpful for learners to see tongue placement in contrasting sounds of English.
