Perfect your pronunciation!



Perfecting your spoken skills in a foreign language has just become much easier. With Sanako Pronounce Live learners can practice pronunciation anywhere and anytime with the help of a tireless and always available native speech model.


Sanako Corporation is a Finnish educational technology company with a global presence through a network of partners. The company’s latest product, Sanako Pronounce Live, launched in September of 2016, complements current methods for independent learning. The user friendly online application allows users to listen and repeat after a model pronunciation produced by a text-to-speech voice, after which they receive immediate and detailed feedback on how well their pronunciation matches the native model. The solution also allows learners to access and print practice reports to track their progress.


Pronounce Live is based on our Sanako Pronounce software that has attracted over 1,5 million language learners globally in the two years since its release. When designing Sanako Pronounce Live we paid special attention to valuable customer feedback, resulting in a completely modern, innovative and user friendly learning environment, explains Senior Vice President Mark Barratt.


Pronounce Live allows learners to import text and vocabulary from any source, which means that each learner can make the learning environment and exercises fit their particular interests and needs.

– Learners always have a speech model available that allows them to practice pronunciation and spoken skills whenever and wherever suits them best. The lowered threshold to speech practice that is afforded by the privacy and flexibility of Pronounce Live may be important to many learners, Barratt notes.


Sanako Pronounce Live is currently compatible with the Google Chrome browser in Windows OS, Mac OS X, Linux and Chromebook environments and will be available in the future also for Android- and iOS platforms. Pronounce Live is available at
