How to make this sound

Sound is a consonant that involves the front part of your tongue held flat, and lifted up to touch or tap in the middle of the area (ridge) just behind your two front top teeth. You tap your tongue in this position and drop it quickly. It is a quiet or unvoiced sound, and is produced lightly and quickly. For English spoken in the united States of America:- When the /t/ is said between two vowels, most of the time, it changes and is not a definite /t/ sound. It becomes more like a soft /d/ sound e.g., letter; writer
