Phonetic transcriber

The SPA transcriber is specially created for students of Spanish as a foreign language.
It helps you to know how to pronounce a written sentence as a whole, AS WE SPEAK, not isolated words as in other transcribers.

Phonetic transcriber

This is a unique and novel Spanish transcriber because:

  • Not only transcribes some key Spanish sounds but also marks the sentence rhythm.
  • It takes into account the pronunciation of the sentence as a whole, and not the words in isolation, as is the case with other transcribers.

It has been created by specialists in pronunciation and computer science, Alexandra and Jamie. They have made it possible for you to visualize key elements of pronunciation in a sentence so that you can practice independently and whenever you want. The more you use it, the faster you will memorize the pronunciation rules.

The Spanish Pronunciation Academy phonetic transcriber is immensely useful because it automatically transcribes any Spanish sentence. You can practice with your sentences or short texts or use a sentence automatically generated by the transcriber.

What can you visualize in the Phonetic Transcriber?

You need to know some phonetics but not be an expert, as it does not show all the phonetic symbols of a word or phrase, as is traditionally the case. So what can you visualize?

  • The division into syllables (resyllabification) taking into account how they sound within the sentence. This is crucial, as it helps you pronounce the phrase as a whole, not the pronunciation of the words as if they were isolated.

  • The stressed syllables in the sentence, not word for word, as some words are not stressed when they are in a sentence. 

  • Links. Some syllables are linked together even if they belong to different words. This is very important because it transforms the pronunciation of the syllables and, therefore, the rhythm of a sentence.

  • The approximant consonant sounds "b" "d" "g" and "v".

  • The letter "h" to remind you that it is not pronounced in Spanish.

  • The voicing of the "s". For some students, this is very important to keep in mind when practicing.

Use the transcriber while you listen to the right pronunciation and to memorise and internalise the key rules. Also, during reading to make sure that you are marking your sentences correctly.

Please note the following considerations:

  • Write correct sentences in Spanish. If you use foreign personal names, the transcriber may not work correctly.
  • Do not write texts longer than 150 words.

Enjoy it!

Software Engineer
Jaime Newton is a British software engineer with an interest in developing learning tools. On a business trip to Spain, he fell in love with the people, the country and the language. When he met Alexandra in her pronunciation classes, the teacher and student realized that a collaboration was more than necessary. The result is this transcriber that we hope will be useful in your autonomous learning, in the wonderful journey of good pronunciation and fluency in speaking Spanish.
