While there are guidelines for pronouncing scientific names, you will find deviations:
the way a favorite teacher pronounced a mushroom’s name, a “traditional” way to pronounce
it, influence of the native language of the speaker, and more.
If you have suggestions for corrections in pronouncing any of the species’ names,
please contact Bill Russell so that I can update the sound file. As a user of the
program, you will be offered free updates.
After you download the file, you can listen to it anytime you like by playing it
with your computer. Or, transfer it to your portable MP3 music player. Or, use your
CD burner to make a CD in MP3 format for a suitable player. Or, create an AUDIO FORMAT
CD with your burner program to play in your auto or home CD player.
If you have high speed Internet connection it will download in a minute or less.
A telephone modem will require a longer time, perhaps half an hour.
