    Does anyone know any GOOD yet simple Phonetic Name Spelling converters/generators that actually work, and that someone had pronunciation success with as far as Siri accepting it goes?

    I have looked at about 20 sites today and they either don't pronounce the words correctly or in the simplistic form that Siri seems to prefer. I also keep getting those odd symbols that Siri doesn't like or work with and phonetic spelling of names by the use of other random words.

    Could anyone help me out please! I would so dearly appreciate it. My friend Sarah isn't pronounced Say-Rah as one translator stated. *rolls eyes*

    Thank you in advance.

    Just write your own. It doesn't have to be in the right syntax or whatever, just write it the way it's spelled. For instance, "Charlotte" could be phonetically spelled as "Shar-lit" or your friend Sarah could be "Sa-ra" or "Sae-ra." Siri would be "see-ree" or "sie-rie."
