[tdf-discuss] How to pronounce the name (again, sorry)


I saw users having problem pronouncing the software name "LibreOffice" in Thailand. I found this page http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/faq/general-faq/how-do-you-pronounce-libreoffice/ that link to Google translate to provide the (official?) pronouncement.

http://translate.google.com/#fr|en|LibreOffice

I'm quite surprised with it. I thought it is ˈlɪbə as in "liberty" orlbr as in http://www.thefreedictionary.com/vers+libre So actually it is ˈliːbreɪ as in http://es.thefreedictionary.com/libre , right? (phonetic copy/paste from the website)

It would be nice if someone could provide an official pronouncement sound file on the LibreOffice website (and phonetic, for the literate). Since we start to pronounce the name differently here in Thailand.
