Sounds of English App was originally envisioned as a tool to assist some people on the autistic spectrum to become familiar with the fundamental sounds of English language.

Sounds of English App consists of the following exercises in Vowels and Consonants versions.
-touch a glyph to hear its corresponding sound
-hear a sound then try to select the correct glyph, hear it again or try another sound 
-see a glyph and hear its sound, followed automatically by another glyph/sound combination

Sounds of English App helps a learned with the following
-phonological awareness
-orthographical awareness
-categorization of consonants by place of articulation
-diphthong awareness
-linking each unique glyph per phonological unit for internal mental representation.

Since English language has many dialects, the most widely understood English dialect was chosen: General American. It's the dialect which is used in Hollywood movies and sitcoms.
