Google Rocks Again: Audio Pronunciation in Google Search

August 19, 2011
Filed under: Featured, Google 

Google added a new feature to the dictionary OneBox: audio pronunciation. This feature was available if you clicked “More” to read all the definitions, but now it’s more accessible.





Google uses Flash to play the audio file, so the feature doesn’t work if you disable Flash. It’s interesting that Google shows the audio icon if you use an iPad, even though the device doesn’t let you install the Flash plugin. The HTML5 audio tag is a better option for iOS devices and for the browsers that support it.
