Pronunciations Where You Need Them

UMass Amherst students, faculty, and staff have access to NameCoach, an easy-to-use tool for recording and sharing name pronunciation.

NameCoach is currently available in Canvas, Moodle and Blackboard learning management systems (LMS). NameCoach will be integrated into PeopleFinder and SPIRE in spring 2024.

The integration of NameCoach across campus platforms supports UMass Amherst's commitment to building a welcoming and inclusive campus community where every individual feels a sense of belonging.
