Generally, the voice that comes with the software will try its best to pronounce the word, no matter how incomprehensible. This can sometimes lead to blind people mispronouncing important words because they are made up and their screenreader doesn't say them right. As was previously mentioned, the pronounciation can be changed by typing in a misspelling that does sound right into the screenreader. On very rare ocasions, certain combinations of letters will crash the reader, because it simply can't process them, meaning we need to restart the program.
