It can be helpful to include pronunciations for students' names in a place where teachers can easily reference them. An easy way to accomplish this is by adding the pronunciation as a general alert on each student so that, when a teacher hovers ther mouse over the icon next to the student's name, the pronunciation displays.

Rebecca, in this situation, is pronounced like "Ruh-beck-ah". This is exposed by hovering over the general alert icon to the left of the student's name.

To insert a pronunciation in a General Alert field, perform the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the student's person record in Axiom and click on the Energency tab in the General section.
  2. Enter how to pronounce the student's name in the General Alert field in the Medical Notes section.
    • if you are also storing other information in this field, you may want to ro prepend the proununciation with "Sounds like:" or "Pronunced:".
  3. Click Update.

Certain security role combinations may prevent this alert from appearing; because of this, we strongly advise you review documentation about general alerts here.
