About Me
VT has many advanced level words that are mispronounced. VT website quotes: The VT website says "Just use the link at the bottom of the play page to let us know of a problem with a particular word, and we'll do our best to make improvements." And this was a 2008 press release: "We're extremely proud to announce that the Visual Thesaurus now offers accurate, high-quality audio pronunciations for every single word in our database � all 150,000 of them!" VT still has 3-year-old corrections to do. Correction: Now the mispronunciations are 5 years old. Correction: now they are 10 years old.

Visual Thesaurus has not fixed its mispronunciation of this short-tubed pasta after 3 years. The word is difficult enough as it is! 7 more years later and the word is still being butchered.

""Those who endeavor to pronounce words for others to spell ought to be able to correctly read phonetics to correctly pronounce those words no matter how difficult the pronunciation.""
