Find any sound with findsounds.com

FindSounds.com is a free site for finding sound effects on the Web. It is a Web search engine, like Google and Yahoo, but with a focus on sounds. It provides powerful features, yet is simple and easy to use, and suitable for all ages. Note to teachers and parents: audio files containing obscenities are filtered out so this site is safe for children.

Implications for teaching.

If you are making a podcast, a video or just want some sounds and stingers for a school play they are all here.  Younger students might like to play secret sound by guessing what the sound is or finding sounds to match letters of the alphabet.

As a side note - findsounds is also available as a mobile app.
