"If you want to sound sophisticated and worldly — or just not embarrass yourself — when discussing current affairs, take a look at the VOA Pronunciation Guide. It’s a repository of pronunciation keys and audio files (mp3) for people and places in the news from around the world." Shirl Kennedy, Resource Shelf, 5 April 2010.
     "People with uncommon names don't expect perfect pronunciation the first time they meet someone, but they're probably impressed when they encounter it. Get a jump on your next business meeting or speaking opportunity with For names appearing in the news, a better resource is the Voice of America pronunciation guide, compiled as a resource for the U.S. federal government's radio channel."
