Hi. That depends on the software. JAWS goes by the way letter combinations should be pronounced. In fact, there's a dictionary function that lets you enter in a word and then type in how it should be pronounced. For example, JAWS pronounces the name Eliza as E-Lizz-ah. I can make it say the name correctly if I go to the dictionary feature and type in "Elighza." I know this isn't very helpful. It really depends on the word in question.

Just wondering.
