You can get by with buying or borrowing a 5$ microphone. Then use
StartMenu->Program->Accessories->Multimedia->Sound Recorder (or similar, depending upon OS version) to make the file.

how much trouble would it be to put a sound icon on the full picture page which people could click on and hear the associated .wav file?

Currently there's a "pronunciation" link on the relevant picture pages - not quite the same thing, but close.
And can someone tell me what equipment and applet (presumably) I would need to make a recording of "Dena Jo... but you can call me dollface."

I see you use a PC, so an inexpensive microphone should be all you need. The "Sound Recorder" app is there as part of Windows. Having said that, I've tried a couple of microphones on a couple of PCs and every recording sounds like a voice coming through a brick wall. Good luck!

There's a new page on the alt-usage-english site, showing the pronunciation of some regular contributors' names. http://alt-usage-english.org/audio gallery/


The only person whose name I see regularly which I baulk at is Padraig Breathnach. I do recall seeing a pronunciation guide somewhere but can't be bothered to google it as I quite like mentally pronouncing it phonetically - Pad-rayg Breath-natch. Of course, if ever I were to meet the esteemed gentleman, I should be careful to establish how it should be sonically pronounced.

Obviously, you haven't looked. It's there.

So it is. There should have been fanfare or at least a rattle of snare drums. Surprisingly ordinary looking, isn't he?

...rather than being bog ugly like yourself. "Charles" means, in fact, man of the people so it shouldn't be surprising I, unlike you, don't look like the south end of a north-pointing horse.

You think so? I thought he looked quite distinguished, just lacking a woman's touch.

I question that "ordinary looking" can be construed as derogatory in any way. He has the requisite number of ears, eyes, and other visible external parts, no tail or horns in evidence, and seems quite kempt.

I rather like his tie, too.

How do you know that? The picture was only of his face.

In Ballykissangel, the first name (of the character who ran the garage?) always sounded like "Porayg" but I could be wrong.
