A website that pronounces foreign words

AT&T; has come up with a text-to-speech website that enables you to type in text and hear its correct pronunciation. You have a choice of a male or female speaker of the following accents and languages: British, French, Canadian French, German, or Latin American Spanish.

This site could be handy the next time you're planning a trip with a map or a guidebook. To find out the correct pronunciation of a city name or other unfamiliar word, type it into the Text-to-Speech website.

That means you don't have to carry a room key to rent a locker with or cash to buy a photo of you sliding on a log flume. Editor Erik Torkells comments on this news here.
