Sighted children who read a lot (especially the ones that read above their grade level) apply the same sort of spelling/pronunciation rules as screen readers and often find out as adults that there are many words they pronounce incorrectly because they never heard anyone actually say them before.

It depends on the screen reader software and it depends on the made up word. Sometimes the word is spelled out and sometimes it follows the pronunciation rules that are programmed into the software. If the latter you often get something like garble.

How does vision-impaired software pronounce made-up words and names that shouldn't be pronounceable? Just wondering.
