RhinoSpike, a platform to share audio recordings by native speakers

Autonomous learningAudio recording

Description: RhinoSpike is a tool that allows users to ask native speakers of their target language to read a text aloud for them. For that, users submit a text file and, eventually, receive back an audio file. User can also ask native speakers to transcribe an audio for them. RhinoSpike is free but requires registration for use.

Evaluation: Rhinospike is a valuable tool for learners who want to improve their pronunciation skills. It is a fantastic linguistic project by volunteers who have formed a genuine community. While it may take a while to get a native speaker to read aloud a specific passage, users can access thousands of existing recordings. However, it seems nowadays a bit of an outdated tool since some AI tools can do just that in seconds.

Cost: Free with registration.
