Re: [NTO] Can't hear sound at Encarta
- Thanks, guys. It never occurred to me the problem could be with the
site. I get an error message, but that's for a page in an iframe, and
I get that either I click the sound or not.
I read last year that MS was discontinuing Encarta, but that they
should keep this site up and running. Maybe they are hard up and want
to save transfer by pulling the sounds. ;-)
Too bad if it's closing down. It was a good place to hear the proper
pronounciation of English words.

only to offer American pronounciations, not English, which in many cases
are markedly different.
(I find English audiobooks and radio plays effortless and often can't
say, if I have just listened to English or German, but American is work.
I even frequently have to stop American films and replay a scene with
subtitles on, because I found it impossible to understand the dialogue.)
