Thanks, everyone. It was very interesting, and sometimes funny, to read
your responses. As a former translator of a few languages, I prefer to
hear the word as pronounced by native speakers. I'm the exception to the
norm for that here in the US, though. I can understand the logic behind
letting the screen reader butcher the word, and used that during my
briefing to the CEO this morning.

Thanks again, all!
