Hello, I understand that maintaining an API could be burdensome, thanks anyway for the great job you've been doing. I was planning to use the API to get the pronunciation of some words. Would you have any dictionary to recommend? I'm in the initial phase of designing a small SPA tool to help with learning the phonetic speficics for languages, obviously I would prefer to be a good citizen and not to scrap any website :)

    Phonetics, like IPA or other written pronunciation? That is diffiucult to find. I would think the wikipedia dictionary might be your best bet. Good luck!

    I'm interested in the API written pronunciation, as well as the sound file. Would you know how to find it?

    Wikipedia is probably the best free resource, but there are a number of computer pronunciations out there. Text-to-speech is something your phone and computers to a certain extent have built in. You could probably use that for spoken examples.

    Good luck!
