Fashion Week 2015, Pronounced

At Forvo, we think everyone should be able to understand and be understood. As part of Forvo’s redesign, we will soon be debuting a new feature that will allow users to create and share lists. So not only will users be able to hear and pronounce names like a native speaker, but be able to easily share their own created lists among whomever they wish.

As a preview of what’s to come, we’ve put together native speaker pronunciations of some of the designers showing at NY Fashion week this week. Stay tuned for developments on this feature and others at

Sharing pronunciations

Many people don’t know that forvo pronunciations are ready to be shared and posted in blogs like this. Follow up these steps:

1. Find the word you want to embed. In this example, the recently passed away designer Yves Saint Laurent

2. Copy the code under “share this pronunciation”. The chosen pronunciation is what we call the “standard” by complex calculations ;) (votes, type of user, etc).

3. Paste it to your post like this…

So that’s it. You could even do some nice compositions. Good luck!
