The Vowel Machine is a program designed to help you to learn to recognise English vowel sounds. Each time you click the SPIN button, three words will appear and you will hear one of them. Your task is to choose the right one.
If you want to hear the target word
again before choosing, click the small triangle in the box marked PLAY
You can hear any of the words by clicking the PLAY 1 PLAY 2 or PLAY 3 buttons.
Once you have chosen a word, you will get feedback in the Answer window. The Vowel Machine will not allow you to cheat by choosing a target after the answer has been displayed. Once you have chosen a word, you must click SPIN to carry on to the next set of three, although you may still hear any of the sounds for the current word set before you continue.
Your score will be continually updated in the Score window.
The Vowel Machine chooses sets of words
and target words at random, so don't be surprised if you get the same set (and
possibly the same target) twice in a row
