As a non-native English speaker, I often search for the meaning of words on Google Search. Google provides the word's pronunciation in a written format. I do not understand how that written format is interpreted or used. What is the standard, standards body or authoritative reference for it?
I did try to figure out this out before asking here. The best result I got was this website. It gives more examples but doesn't answer my question. What resources, websites only please, should I refer to?
The website must have phonetics in audible format as well as written format.
