Enforced pronunciation dictionaries in VoiceOver 

Can I just complain once again about enforced pronunciation dictionaries in TTS systems?

I speak a language (Catalan) that is not supported by TTS on Apple systems, even though there ARE Vocalizer Catalan voices. Therefore, I use Spanish TTS, which sounds extremely wrong but I can at least understand. Mostly.

Some Catalan words happen to be spelled the same as words in other languages which are more important to some rando APple engineer. Therefore, the weak pronoun "et" is read as "e", because French. The preposition "sense" is read as "sens", also because French. I (and) in the beginning of sentences is sometimes read as "Ai", because English. The direct object pronoun "ho" is read as "jo", NO IDEA WHY.

I cannot disable these. Nobody can. Apple keeps adding new ones that break existing words. I am so tired of this. So very tired of this pseudocorrect pronunciation being enforced on me.

I'm not a "non-passing" woman. cis people just don't know anything about what women look like.
