I’ve recently been learning to read and write in Welsh, and the use of some of the popular online English-Welsh dictionaries has been really useful, but I one thing I noticed is that they don’t contain any audio. Sure, I am aware that the pronunciation of Welsh is (mostly) phonetic, so much of the time you can work out how to pronounce words by reading them, however it’s nice to be able to hear the words too.
So I was wondering if anyone knows of any English-Welsh dictionaries that contain audio alongside the words?
Unfortunately, you need to register, and registrations seem to be closed.
Worth giving it a try though, and if it is currently closed, revisit it from time to time in case it reopens. I think it is, or was, in “Beta test”, and perhaps they lack the resources to make it a “production system”.
It’s all done by self-motivated volunteers, so I don’t think you can guarantee that all speakers will be real native speakers of the language concerned.
