I am trying to figure out if Fact has a long a vowel sound? If I look in the dictionary how do I tell it a word has a long vowel sound
No, FACT does not have a long a sound. Dictionaries usually have a pronunciation key showing the markings for different vowel sounds in familiar words.
In this online dictionary, you can hear the word spoken. Also, the key to the various markings is shown after you click the ? after the word.
