Vocabrio - a new way to learn a language

I am very pleased to announce the launch of Vocabrio - a new web service from Craic that helps you improve your vocabulary in a foreign language.

Vocabrio lets you read any web site in your target language and translate those words that are new to you. The words are added to your custom dictionary and you can test what you have learned with custom quizzes.

Unlike a general textbook, Vocabrio lets you build up a vocabulary of the words that are relevant to your interests, making it more useful than existing tools.

Vocabrio makes use of some amazing new web technologies.

You can listen to how any word is pronounced using Speech Synthesis and HTML5 Web Audio in your browser (no Flash or plugin required!)

You can test your own pronunciation using Web Audio and cutting edge Speech Recognition - all in your browser.

Vocabrio is free to use while it is in Beta release - over time it will shift to a paid subscription.

You can learn more and sign up for an account at http://vocabrio.com
