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.
To insert a pronunciation in a General Alert field, perform the following steps:
- Navigate to the student's person record in Axiom and click on the Energency tab in the General section.
- 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:".
- 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.
