Help with audio pronunciations

How do I listen to English audio pronunciations?

Click on the grey loudspeaker icon to the right of a headword to hear the headword. Pronunciations will be played using Flash (if installed, and if JavaScript is enabled) as this gives best results. If Flash has not been installed, your default audio player will be used instead, and open up a separate pop-up window.

I can’t hear anything when I click on the audio icon – what should I do?

Please make sure that sound is enabled on your computer, and that the Mute box has not been checked.

For best results, you should install Flash or download the latest plugin. If you cannot download the latest Flash plugin, you should make sure that you have the latest version of whichever audio player is already installed on your computer. We recommend either QuickTime or Windows Media Player. If you still cannot hear any sound, you may need to change some options in your browser.

How do I listen to pronunciations for the other languages on the site?

Click on the grey loudspeaker icon to the right of the headword or example sentence to hear a text to speech pronunciation.
