A set of HyperCard stacks for Macintosh that explains and illustrates the sound system of South Asian languages is described. Some of the specific phonetic features of these languages are presented. This is followed by an illustration of the system. The system is built using HyperCard 2.2 using all the standard features like buttons, fields, sound resources etc. The system is expected to be useful in understanding the sound pattern of these languages as well as in teaching of pronunciation of South Asian languages.
