LinkedIn will let you upload audio clips to tell people how to pronounce your name

  • The Verge
  • 3 months ago
  • LinkedIn has added a new feature to its user profiles: the option to record 10-second audio clips to let others know how to pronounce your name.
  • The recordings can only be added via LinkedIn’s mobile apps on Android and iOS, but playback is accessible on both mobile and desktop. To add a recording, simply head to your profile on a mobile app, click View Profile, then Edit, and then “Record name pronunciation.” Step by step instructions can be found here.
  • The feature is a simple one (Facebook has offered a similar option with digital pronunciations for years) but extremely welcome on a networking site like LinkedIn. It’s designed to minimize awkward or unprofessional mistakes when speaking to contacts for the first time: something that’s even more important when the pandemic has meant that face-to-face meetings are limited.
