About the tool

Place names often have unique pronunciations that may not follow regular English pronunciation rules. It gets even more complicated when for example, multiple places share the same name but have different pronunciations.

This IPA Map is an interactive slippy map in which every label is accompanied by a phonetic transcription, allowing users to pronounce place names correctly and communicate more effectively. It is useful for anyone who is learning English or curious about the phonetics of place names and its nuances.

The pronunciations follow the format used by Wikipedia's IPAc-en template.
