Do voters know how to you pronounce your name? Using Real Audio?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Updates to TK's Atlanta Council Race 2001 : One Thread
Do voters know how to you pronounce your name? Many don't. So if your name is more complicated that Mary Smith, surfers may need some help.
You could at least do a phonetic spelling. It might be even better if voters could hear you actually speak your name using Real Audio. Your name and voice are your stock and trade as a politician. Why not use high tech to deliver that very human part of you?
Please, don't force your voice on the surfer. If the surfer want to know how to pronouce your name and hear your voice, he'll be happy to click for it. No speaches!
