You may change how your child’s name is pronounced at any time from the Dashboard.

Log into the Dashboard at and then click on the settings icon (it looks like two mountains side by side in a box) located inside the purple bar next to the student’s name, above and to the right of their current avatar image.

A student's avatar and preferred voices can be changed on the dashboard by clicking the settings icon above and to the right of the student's avatar.

The pop up screen will open to the settings and default to “Avatar.” Click on “Voices” just above the avatar image.

In the resulting window, use the “Pronunciation” field at the top of the screen, and enter your child’s name phonetically. You can modify the spelling of your child’s name to sound out the name as you wish it to sound. You can then press the purple triangle-shaped “play” button to the left of that field to hear a preview of how your child’s name will be pronounced within the app.

Change the pronunciation of your student's name from the voices window.

Once you are happy with how the system is pronouncing your child’s name, click on the purple “Save” text in the bottom right corner to exit the pop up screen.
