Technology Integration in Teaching and Learning English Phonetics
The current research aimed to explore universal technological advancement in teaching pronunciation. The textual analysis method was adopted to explore various technological tools that could be used in teaching English pronunciation. The analysis explored various technological tools which are appropriate, feasible, less expensive, and accurate to teach English pronunciation. The study recommends various technological tools such as; Sounds of Speech, Phonetics, YouGlish, Voki, Fotobabble, Adobe Spark, Praat, and Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) for teaching-learning English pronunciation. The study unfolds carefully designed technological programmes and instruction to address the need for technology-integrated intervention in pronunciation teaching.
