How do I record my name pronunciation or set my preferred pronouns?

NameCoach is an application that allows you to record your name pronunciation and set your preferred pronouns. These are available to teaching staff, along with your photo, in the Roster Photos tool in Canvas.

  • Go to Axess.
  • Hover over the Student menu, then click the NameCoach link.


The NameCoach web site will launch in a new tab/window. Your name and email address should be pre-populated. You can then add preferred pronouns, phonetic spelling of your name and an audio recording of your name.
