I've noticed a trend among certain people who attempt to pronounce the names of places and people in audible fiction.
Namely that they can't.
Okay, it's a little more complex than that, let me see...
What I'm seeing is two kinds of people. One has no trouble pronouncing unusual words or names and just says what the show says, the other seems to have a sort of spell-check running in their heads that makes them unable to pronounce (or remember) words that they've heard spoken a number of times.
I usually don't have trouble, but in shows or movies where the pacing is bad or the voices aren't clear I'll have trouble placing who is who. In such a case, being Fe (and social 3) I'll usually avoid trying to call them by name because I don't want to look foolish.
But what I'm talking about are people who genuinely seem to have difficulty calling something by an unusual name. I once watched a reviewer do some vlogs of Steven Universe, and though he got Pearl and Steven's names straight, repeatedly pronounced Garnet as "Garrett" (a real name) and he couldn't remember Amethyst at all, despite it being a very distinct word and very obviously applied to the character repeatedly. He doesn't have any learning disabilities that I'm aware of and is usually around average in articulation. Names just get him.
Then of course everyone knows the guy who can't pronounce the names in an anime despite them being said over and over, often mixing up vowel sounds completely rather than something more understandable like the addition or drop of a consonant.
Could this be a Pi thing, or is there some kind of aural dyslexia I'm not aware of yet? Anyone else notice this?
