Cocoa pronunciation

Probably a weird post to start this blog with, but during my visit to WWDC ‘08 and listening to a few cocoa related podcasts it dawned to me that I always wrongly pronounced cocoa (probably due to my native language which seems to prefer to speak out both the ‘o’ and ‘a’ vowels). Thanks to the wonders of speech synthesis I can easily let you hear my wrong pronunciation (by feeding it a bad transcription of cocoa) and how I should have pronounced ‘cocoa’.

This is how I used to pronounce it:cocoa - bad pronunciation

While this is the correct pronunciation:cocoa - correct pronunciation

[No, I didn't have a gender change, I preferred the female synthesis voice because the pronunciation was better.]
