Why I made this app

While studying at EDA, we learnt about incorporating external APIs into web applications. I thought it would be fun to make a simple web app using html, css, javaScript and React that calls the Free Online Dictionary API.

User Story

A user can enter the English spelling of a word into the text box and received back the spelling in IPA.

Through refering the NZPA pronunication chart, the user can figure out how to pronounce a tricky word like choir.

The user will also see the vowel shift in New Zealand English if the have prior knowledge of IPA.
