Technology has been very useful in finding ways to help learners with pronunciations issues, which were in the past addressed by the teacher. I have collected some interesting pronunciation tools that can definitely help students when teachers are not around.

Interactive phonemic charts

For listening to pronunciation of words and connected speech

Forvo/ All the Words in the World. Pronounced
