Hi there,

Unfortunately, the app is only available for iPad and iPad mini right now. You can access the phonemic chart on your Android device by visiting the chart on the Teaching English website: https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/article/phonemic-chart.

You will need to use the Firefox app and make sure you have the Adobe Air app installed (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.adobe.air).

Hope this helps! We hope you continue to enjoy using the LearnEnglish apps!

Very good app however, no responds have been made to answer LittleMoon86's question about the diphthong /ʊə/ ... Believe that it was missed out to be included in the chart and you will be adding it to as soon as possible in an update to the app.

You're the best, thanks!

Hi Jobzy,

Thanks for leaving us a comment! That's right, the diphthong /ʊə/ is not on the interactive chart on this page at the moment, but if you will see it if you download the Sounds Right app.

I'll pass on your feedback to the team about adding this diphthong on the chart.

Do check out our other smartphone and tablet app as well: http://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/en/apps.

I've just downloaded the "Sounds Right" app to my iPad. However, there's no sound when I tap each word on the table! Please advise me what to do to make things happen!
