Try the word "read," r e a d, as in:

She had read the article.
She will read the article.

But I doubt this phenomenon, which is surely determined by an algorithm,
explains the disparities in this thread. I'm guessing something in the
specific application controls pronunciation.

John,

Yes, I've noticed that, as well. Can't give a specific example now, but
definitely some words pronounce differently when they are preceded by
certain other words or word endings.

I find that punctuation before or after a word can sometimes change its
pronunciation.

Listers: Using jaws 14, IE9. Bible Gateway.com provided a very poor
attempt at pronouncing the name, Nathaniel. Using dictionary manager I
improved on it, but was still dissatisfied. I composed a message to this
list asking for suggestions for better phonetics and discovered in this
message Nathaniel is pronounced perfectly. How can this be? I have checked
both default and WLM dictionary manager and can come up with no
explanation.

Thanks for any help. Stan, the puzzled one.
