    Read Out Loud's competence varies, pronouncing the same word different ways in different docs?

      I have Acrobat Pro DC running on a Windows 10 Surface Pro 4, and I just discovered Read Out Loud. It worked really well for the first document I tried, an academic paper.

       

      Then I tried another document and, while it still "works", the reader is now mispronouncing words, the same words it was pronouncing correctly earlier!

       

      For example, in the first paper, the word "hospitality" was pronounced correctly, but in the second paper, the pronunciation is "hospitali-tie". "Study" was pronounced correctly in the first paper, but in the second paper it's being pronounce "stoody".

       

      Does anyone have any clue as to what is going on here? I was so pleased with the first paper and so disappointed to find that the performance is not consistent.

       

      Thanks for any help, and please let me know if you need any further detail.
