Re: Why does NVDA say torado instead of tornado?

Maybe it’s a proper name in one or more languages.  Some synthesizers pronounce the word "reading" as "redding" when capitalized for
Redding Pensylvania.  So, a sentence with reading capitalized at the beginning, would be spoken "Redding this book was a particularly memorable experience."

I’ve just noticed that voiceover on the iPhone does the same thing! What is it about the word tornado!
