Translate text into phonetic script I always believe that the best sites and web tools are the simplest, and this is certainly the case with Phonetizer. It's a really easy to use tool that takes and text and adds the phonetic spelling below it. It's really easy to use. You just cut and paste or type in the text you want to use in the left hand side, click on 'Transcribe' and the text appears on the right with the phonetic writing underneath each line. You can then cut and paste to a document if you want to save it. Related links: Best Nik Peachey

Introduction to phonetic transcription by Tomasz P. Szynalski © Tomasz P. Szynalski, Antimoon.com With phonetic transcriptions, dictionaries tell you about the pronunciation of words. Phonetic transcriptions are usually written in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), in which each English sound has its own symbol.

It creates great looking Scrapbook pages of multiple images in no time. Today, as I was planning with our first grade Hebrew teacher, how to upgrade a traditionally taught vocabulary project (creating a dictionary of their weekly vocabulary words in Hebrew), we saw the opportunity to use PicCollage with students in the classroom. (My apologies in advance for the example below is in Spanish and not in Hebrew) Reminder: The idea of a visual dictionary should/is not be confined to the World Language classroom. The ideas was for the students to take photos, email photos from home or find photos online to represent their weekly Hebrew vocabulary words. Double tapping on the image, will bring the Photo editing menu, choose “Clip Photo” to clip the object out of the background. Just use your finger to draw around the outer edges of your object. Once the text is placed on the canvas, simply drag and drop the text into its location.
