Name pronunciations are now available in the IU Directory and the News at IU experts directory
What’s in a name? Plenty, especially when it’s not pronounced correctly. All staff, faculty, and students at IU have access to NameCoach, a tool for recording your name so others can learn how to pronounce it.
Names can be recorded on your mobile device, a computer microphone, or over the phone, then made available:
- In Canvas
- From your email signature
- On social media (Linkedin, etc.)
- In your News at IU expert profile page (by request)
- Anywhere you choose to share your NameBadge
Now your name recording will also appear in the IU Directory after you’ve made the recording. You can even show some school spirit with a crimson NameBadge. So, what are you waiting for—go make a name for yourself!
