Have you ever seen someone’s name in writing but not been sure how to pronounce it? Have you been embarrassed at making a massacre of the name of the person with whom you had an appointment at a company? LinkedIn has added a handy feature that will avoid a lot of awkwardness: the ability to record 10-second audio clips to let others know how to pronounce your name. Recordings can only be added via LinkedIn’s mobile apps on Android and iOS, but playback is available everywhere. To add a recording, simply go to your profile in a mobile application, click on “View profile”, then on “Edit” and finally on “Add name pronunciation”. The option will be gradually rolled out to all 690 million users of the networking platform this month.

The Verge, James Vincent, “LinkedIn will let you upload audio clips to tell people how to pronounce your name.”
