Never Mispronounce a Foreign Name Again

The engineers at AT&T have developed a Text-to-Speech tool that will give you a reasonable pronunciation of any typed text.  So I decided to put it though it’s paces with a few difficult places to pronounce:
Neuschwanstein
Hohenschangau
Chichen Itza
Gloucester
Worcester
Pematangsiantar

No bad, it gives a clear pronunciation (you can even try out different voices) and is very useful in getting your head and tongue around difficult words.  Give it a try the next time you’re heading off to a foregin land and are unsure how to pronounce unusual words.
