Translate text into phonetic script

Translate text into phonetic script | Learning, Teaching & Technology Today | Scoop.it

"I always believe that the best sites and web tools are the simplest, and this is certainly the case with Phonetizer. It's a really easy to use tool that takes and text and adds the phonetic spelling below it."

Looks to a be great tool in transcribing text to IPA. Going into my top ELT bookmarks/tools.

Now I'm the king of the swingers
Oh, the jungle VIP
I've reached the top and had to stop
And that's what's botherin' me
I wanna be a man, mancub yeah
And stroll right into town
I wanna be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeyin' around!

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 7, 2013 5:56 PM

Connected Learning:


  1. Interest-powered – the researchers state that “learners who are interested in what they are learning, achieve higher order learning outcomes.” This requirement brings a certain degree of relevance to educational models. Organizations that follow the connected learning principles create programming that allows the learner to explore their own interests.
  2. Peer-supported – Connected learning also has an element of socialization as a required function in learning. Allowing learners to interact with each other and teach each other in various forms of group work helps learners make connections not only with the materials they’re learning, but with their peers as well. Creating learning spaces where peer to peer learning is encouraged leads to deeper cultural exploration and understanding.
  3. Academically oriented – The third principle proposed by the Connected Learning Model proposes that academic success is an important underpinning for intellectual growth.
