Here is one of those sites that must be passed along. In our online global community we all encounter words we don't know how to pronounce, words foreign to us.
I discovered this site from a post on Ingres over at Charley Parker's blog 'Lines and Colors'.
If you are like me then you sometimes have trouble deciphering other languages and the correct pronunciation of words, specifically artists names.
FORVO provides pronunciations in the native tongue, (click blue triangle), as well as a map showing the region of that diction in male and female voices.
