Anyone Can Practice Their English Proficiency with New Web Plug-in from Leading Smart AI English Pronunciation Company

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ELSA, a Silicon Valley based company that uses speech recognition technology and artificial intelligence to help language learners improve their English pronunciation, today announces the launch of ELSA Instant for learning anytime, anywhere. With this free plug-in, you can now listen to how any English word or phrase is pronounced and instantly test and improve your own pronunciation, because learning doesn't have to happen at a specific time of day. You can practice any word, phrase or sentence when you'd like and as you encounter it.

Experts know that learning a language is an ongoing and continuous process that is best accomplished when incorporated into a learner's daily life and habits. For example, have you wondered how to pronounce a specific word, such as squirrel, isthmus or anemone? Perhaps you've read a word online, on social media, or in a document and aren't sure how to say it? With ELSA Instant, learn how to say any word and receive instant feedback about your pronunciation using our proprietary AI technology. Simply select & highlight any online word in the text that you read and compare your own pronunciation of that word with a native English speaker. Use the plug-in to hear a sample and record yourself for instant feedback. ELSA will provide a score of your pronunciation to help you improve, such as green for excellent or red for improvement needed.

"The concept of learning typically means that you set aside a dedicated time of your day to study and practice. With the new ELSA Instant, you're given the ability to learn and test your pronunciation of any word that you see at any time, instead of at a fixed time of day. It's easy and simple to use for anyone who wants to build confidence in their English proficiency," said Ms. Vu Van, co-founder and CEO of ELSA.

ELSA (English Language Speech Assistant) helps 1.5 billion English language learners across the globe to improve their English speaking ability. Its app, ELSA Speak, uses proprietary speech technology with deep learning and AI to detect people's pronunciation mistakes with 95%+ accuracy. ELSA Speak listens to the way language learners pronounce words, sentences or conversations to pinpoint exact errors and provide real-time feedback on pronunciation mistakes with specific suggestions on how to improve.

To begin using the new ELSA Instant for free, visit to:

    --  Install ELSA Instant on your browser
    --  Right click to hear and speak any word, phrase or sentence you choose
    --  Get instant feedback and keep practicing
