Hear the Audio Pronunciation of English Dictionary words and learn

Many of us speak English words in a wrong way and our ascent is not good or sometimes we distort those intentionally rather by mistake. Sometimes we need to tech the pronunciation of any word to our child too but the general dictionary has no such feature to make it audible.  Now the google has brought this audio feature of  the English dictionary words. I have just made it easier by using their API.
Just visit http://wavesdream.com/apps/pronunciation/  and you can see a audio player with a search box.

Write any English word in the text box and click on Pronounce button. Now you can hear the actual English Pronunciation of your typed word.
You just need to latest browser with flash player installed to see this in action  .
I have just coded the pages with HTML5 audio player and used Google dictionary API & some PHP tricks. If you just test it in any of your server (PHP supported) then you can download the script from here.

    Looks great indeed. Do you have any idea how can I integrate this in Drupal?
