Try this one, Shelley.  How does it pronounce esophageal reflux?

Just for fun,

My screen reader calls them both

in valid, smile, which of course makes for some amusing things sometimes.

It also doesn't like.

Herriot, Kenya, and a few others, i heard one this morning but now can't
remember what it was.

A lum, is also pronounced like alumn the stuff you put into recipes to hold
dye.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] A question re homonyms in context


In the book I'm almost finished validating, there is a
play on words--invalid, meaning sick person, and
invalid, i.e., in val id, meaning not valid. The
latter word is discussed, its meanings--but I'm
curious--how does speech, i.e., the Daisy reader or
whatever, distinguish pronunciations between homonyms
in texts. In this case, in val id is italicized. Will
the speech reader chnage the pronunciation from
invalid to in val id because of that? Of will it
pronounce both words the same and the reader will get
the difference from the explanation that is given.  In
other similar cases, does the speech reader read both
words however the first one happens to be pronounced?

Just curious.

Cindy
