Creating and Adding Your NameCoach Audio Email Signature

Environment

NameCoach, Gmail, Microsoft Outlook

Issue

How do I add a NameCoach name pronunciation email signature link to my email tools such as Gmail and Outlook?

Resolution

NameCoach is a web-based tool that allows users to record, listen to, and learn names. After you've recorded your name pronunciation, you can share your recorded name with others by adding it to your email signature.

NOTE: For creating an Email Signature, U-M users cannot go directly to the NameCoach site and use their UMICH login credentials. To ensure that U-M users are in the U-M domain, use the SSO Email Signature link to create an email signature.
