How can I find sounds or pronunciations on the Internet

  1. May 12, 2016 #1
    Hi. I would like to try to make a search for pronunciations and sounds, for example, of birds. How can I make a search for them. For example, I try to listen "chattering cry". I write it on the Google then look for videos but there was nothing. What would be the other options for this kinds of searches?

    Thank you.

    For pronounciations of words, forvo.com is great.

    Hi. Talking dictionary is confusing to me. Is it Cambridge's English dictionary. The link you gave directs me there. I can see a definition for it as
    quick, repeated noises that some animals make but I cannot see this sound there. Meanwhile I am looking for a grinding sound now.

    Thank you.

    What do you mean you are looking for a grinding sound? What searches have you already done? We are not your personal search engine.

    And google can perform a successful search in significantly less than 21 months...

    I am searching for a grind sound in Google, but I asked about that Talking Dictionary.

    Thank you.

    I've seen a couple of English pronunciation talking dictionaries. Or you can download an app. Have you thought of that?
    Is that what you're looking for?
    Birds? I'm not sure.

    Actually saying, I was looking for something to listen onomatopoeia such as grinding noise, bark, meow ...

    Thank you.

    Ok. Did you look for an app? (e.g. android playstore, or for iphone, or for desktop computer etc.)

    No but I don't know the ways how I can look for an app for my windows 8.1 PC? I have been searching in the internet i.e websites.

    Thank you.

    8.1 is my favourite. Just go to the "Store" tile and do a search, putting the key words that you want. Next step: you find one and download it. However, if you have an android phone or tablet, look in the "Google Play Store" (or "Google Play"), as it is the "richest" apps store in the planet, as far as I know. Everything is there.
    (mostly free apps - same for the windows 8.1 microsoft store, etc.)
