At this point, speech-dispatcher is not designed to be a text processor, 
as correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe it assumes that supported 
synthesizers already have built in text processing capabilities. Any 
pronunciation handling in either speech-dispatcher or a screen reader 
should handle user-defined exceptions only, until or unless 
speech-dispatcher becomes a text processing application that sends raw 
phonemes to most if not all supported speech synthesizers. Otherwise, we 
risk serious pronunciation errors similar to the Speakup error I noted 
earlier. Of course, if full text processing is indeed on the roadmap for 
speech-dispatcher, then this message may be disregarded in its entirety.
