Recycle/clone and offer the 'speak the words set' as a tool for pronunciation

I'm using H5P as a teacher in a higher education school and it offers a number of very promising tools , but I would really recommend the following:

 I suppose that the 'Speak the words set' is meant as a tool to allow students to reply orally to a content question and have their answers checked.

I wanted to use this tool to help my students pronouncing some difficult words in business like 'profitability, development, hypermarkets etc but when testing the tool, even if I pronouce these words completely wrongly -wrong sound or wrong syllable stressed, the system still accepts my answer because it is not meant as a tool to check pronunciation and probably a wide tolerance has been defined in the speech recognition software.

It wouls really help us teachers if H5P were to clone/recycle the software of this tool, and keep everything the same except for a reduction of the tolerance in the speech recognition software and then offer it as a separate pronunciation support tool. I suppose the speech recognition is advanced as you can select within English between US - British etc English.

I haven't found another tool online yet where a teacher can create an own list of words for such tool. Tools exist but always with a fixed set of words, usually basic words.

This would be amazingly interesting for lots of teachers using H5P, I believe.

Kind regards
