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.

  Hi everyone,

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