NameCoach stands against racial violence and injustice. Access public audio resources to help raise awareness.
NameCoach is 100% cloud-based. For most uses of NameCoach the lift is minimal, and you can start seeing the benefits at your business or institution within minutes, not months.
The following NameCoach tools require no coding and minimal set-up (between 5 and 30 minutes), and can be synced to ensure pronunciation accuracy and ease of use across your organization.
Use of the NameCoach API (to embed audio buttons) and embeddable Pronunciation Selection/Recording Widget (for end users to verify or record their own pronunciations) are also designed to be extremely lightweight and easy to implement into any of your systems with minimal coding.
In all cases, the tools are easy and intuitive for end-users (e.g., speaker buttons appear next to names in the tools they use everyday) and require no additional set-up, maintenance, or training.
Our more complex implementations are probably among your easiest – as one customer put it, “it was the easiest implementation from an external vendor in the more than 10 years that I’ve worked here.”
Yes. Our main pre-built integration options include:
We have a number of other pre-built options, and our API (to embed audio buttons/files) and embeddable Pronunciation Selection/Recording Widget (for end users to verify or record their own pronunciations) are both easy to integrate into your other systems.
We are happy to work with you to integrate NameCoach into any system, or develop new pre-built options. Please contact us to discuss!
No. NameCoach has developed the world’s largest database of professionally-recorded accurate audio name pronunciations, and an algorithmic recommendation model to recommend the right pronunciation version for any name/person.
You can use our pre-built integrations, browser extensions, and API to leverage this database for users consuming name pronunciations.
If we are missing a pronunciation needed for your organization, we will automatically add it to the queue to be quickly researched and added; and users can request specific pronunciations as well.
Most of our tools have a built-in option for users or students to verify or voice-record their own name pronunciation, or enter other information your school or business would like to collect.
Yes. You easily create as many custom fields as you’d like, ranging from gender pronoun clarification to whether a student will be attending graduation. The NameCoach support team can also create custom form responses for you, depending on your needs.
NameCoach provides custom templates for collecting gender pronoun, honorific, and other information important for helping users respect other users’ gender identity. This information can be automatically displayed in our pre-built tools (in LMS class rosters, Salesforce user displays, etc.) or via our API (in student or employee profiles, directories, etc.).
NameCoach is also developing an advanced User Interface to ensure that users, schools, and businesses have even more control and flexibility in serving the needs of transgender and other communities!
We continuously strive to make our site and tools accessible to all users according to evolving technical and design best practices. We comply with the United States Access Board’s revised standards for Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, namely the WCAG 2.0 AA standards.
