W&L has adopted a new tool that allows faculty and students to record the pronunciation of their names to aid others in saying it correctly and listen to the recorded names of others: NameCoach.
How it works: Students voice-record their names and instructors can access this information within their Canvas courses. Faculty and staff can also voice-record their name and add a link to their email signatures.
Want to get started? Read these how-to guides:

Also, Director of Academic Technologies, Julie Knudson, will be offering a session about NameCoach during Fall Academy on Thursday, August 25, at 1:30 pm in Leyburn 109. Sign up at https://go.wlu.edu/fallacademy.
