These charts are a phonetics teaching resource containing ultrasound tongue imaging (UTI) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) videos of International Phonetic Association (IPA) speech sounds produced by two trained phoneticians; Janet Beck and John Esling. Clicking on the symbols on each chart will open up a video popup showing the movements of the tongue during speech production.
