Ik weet het niet helemaal zeker natuurlijk, maar ik denk dat chris shure bedoelt. Daar koopt mijn vader zijn draadloze microfoons (voor zijn audio verhuur bedrijf).

Beetje professioneel misschien om MP3's mee op te nemen, maar je krijgt er wel waar voor je geld.

Hoi allemaal,

In today's podcast, you can listen to Dutch tongue twisters (hear Bieneke struggling with a cold and with tongue twisters simultaneously), pronunciation drills (by Joke) and an old Dutch song by Es (EetSmakelijk), who has proved once more that she has a gift for pronouncing even the toughest Dutch sounds like a native speaker. :-)

Veel luisterplezier. :-D

* Today's podcast *

Because my rabbit bit through the cord of my microphone, Tom is your host in today's episode. Listen to Flemish (pronunciation) sentences by Ann De Potter (a teacher of Dutch at Open Context, Brussels), see if you can hear the difference in pronunciation between Flemish Ann and Dutch Joke when they are counting till ten, hear Bieneke producing 'g' and 'h' sounds, and enjoy another beautiful song by EetSmakelijk. [duration: 5 min 47 sec]

*Today's podcast*

It has been three weeks since the last podcast - sorry to keep you waiting!
Today's podcast is all about Saint Nicholas because he has been in the country for two weeks already. Or better: in the countries, as he is in Belgium and the Netherlands. How does he do it.

After EetSmakelijk's intro, I am going to tell you something about the background of Black Pete, the servant of Saint Nicholas. Then, we will conclude the podcast with a contribution by Joke. But first, we are going to listen to a Saint Nicholas song by EetSmakelijk. If you think the sound of my voice is a bit muffled, blame my new microphone! I am going to get another one before the next podcast. [voices: EetSmakelijk, Bieneke, Joke, duration: 9 min 01 sec]

It is about time I uploaded a new podcast but I am momentarily out of inspiration. :p

What would you like to hear? Another story? More pronunciation drills?

With the increased activity in the mp3 recording deparment (by native and non-native speakers), would it be nice to make a compilation of several of the recordings?

We could, for example, dedicate the next podcast to UI en UW. Or R or G? You name it (please, do!).

Well I loved the pronounciation drills, I'd just not to completely bore those that have moved past them.

On the audio page, you write:
One of the forum members suggested a phrase of the day/week. You have to listen to a text and guess what is being said. I will definitely add this feature.
If you remember, I was the one who originally made that suggestion.  Is it still on the way?

Dora,

Thanks for reminding me, I think it is a great idea.

Of course, I remember it was you who coined this idea. :-)

I'm having trouble with this Acapela program on
this website.  Ive got itunes and quicktime installed
from the web and it doesnt say i need any plug ins
anymore.  when i type in something like 'hij' for it
to say i get a moving sound bar but there is no
sound.  the mute is not on.

Is Acapela always there for any word or is it
a trial?

Hi Stormbringer,

Here are a few suggestions for Acepela.

I am using version 6.5 and it works.  After your try to play something with "say it"
you see the player in the lower right corner of the screen.  Right click it and click
"About Quicktime player" to see your version.

Try Internet explorer and firefox to see if there is a difference.

The other thing that I can think might be a problem is with your codecs.

In the Acepela screen under "output file format" choose another format and try "Say it" again.  One is standard WAV and the other is MPEG compressed.

Hope this helps.
