LinkedIn: How to Add a Name Pronunciation to Your Profile

Create an audio file to help other members

Adding a pronunciation is limited to Android and iOS LinkedIn

LinkedIn began rolling out an audio-recording feature that allows users to record the correct pronunciation of their names, which can be listened to by other users. Our guide will show you how to use this feature on your profile.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the LinkedIn application on iOS. Also note that while you can only record your name on iOS and Android, other users can listen to the recording on all platforms.

Step 1: On your LinkedIn profile page, tap the pencil icon near the top of your profile.

Step 2: Tap “Add name pronunciation.”

Step 3: Tap and hold the blue button to record your name.

Step 4: Tap “Apply.” Note: You can tap the blue button again to preview your recording. If you need to retake your recording, tap “Retake.” Finally, by default, your recording will be available for all LinkedIn members to listen to. If you want to change this so that only your direct connections can listen to it, tap “All LinkedIn members.”

Step 5: Tap “Save” to save your recording to your profile.
