An audio speech output also helps with the pronunciation of difficult vocabulary.

LEO also holds several practical additional features for registered users ready, e.g. B. an integrable browser tool, inflection tables for individual terms (conjugations and declensions), a search history and a active community forumwhere members share helpful questions and answers about translations. Registering with LEO is free and enables participation in the discussion forum.
