UW Libraries Partners with Wyoming Libraries to Offer Free Access to Language-Learning Resources

July 26, 2021

University of Wyoming Libraries has partnered with the Wyoming State Library and county libraries to provide free access to Pronunciator, the world’s most comprehensive language-learning service.

The Pronunciator app hosts 164 languages to learn, including American Sign Language and English as a second language, and 146 home languages to learn them in. Pronunciator includes personalized courses, movies, music and more. UW community members and Wyoming residents can connect to these resources from their computers and mobile devices.

UW students, faculty and staff can access Pronunciator at Library patrons throughout the state can access Pronunciator with their WYLD library accounts.

UW users also get access to Pronunciator’s companion app, Bluebird, which is available in the Apple App Store and Google Play. Bluebird focuses on teaching languages hands-free via interactive audio lessons. Bluebird also can create personalized audio lessons based on occupational or personal interests.

“We are delighted to add Pronunciator and Bluebird to the resources we offer the UW community and also provide access to Pronunciator to state library patrons,” says Deborah McCarthy, UW Libraries assistant dean of resource discovery and management. “There are many reasons a person learns a language -- for work, travel, school or simply personal enrichment -- and Pronunciator has something for everyone.”

Pronunciator LLC, a Jackson-based business, provides its online language-learning resources to public libraries, universities, schools and government agencies worldwide.
