This is neat! Howjsay.com lets you type a word in, using either British or American spelling, and it speaks the word in “Standard British English.” Notes: there are no obscene or profane words; there are some alternative pronunciations; there are no phonetic transcriptions; and it is a “work in progress.” It is the work of Tim Bowyer, Amman, Jordan.

I am studying Standard British (or Recieved Pronunciation) for a part in the play and have found that most of the words on howjsay are wrong from everything I have been taught. My director gave us a dialect tape and packet done by David Alan Stern, the founder and president of Dialect Accent Specialists, which disagrees with most of the pronunciations on that site.
