you animations of English and Spanish speech sounds, a video of a
speaker's face producing the sounds, the IPA symbol, and along with all
of this plays the sound. Good for IPA, articulations, and

This page has the movies to go with several papers by John Esling (I'm
having problems with some of these movies, but they're great.).
