How do I pronounce "Uzebox"?

Post by Stardust4Ever » Mon Apr 15, 2013 8:46 am

A pretty basic question, really. I don't know how to properly say the name of the console. I assembled my Uzebox a few weeks ago (I ordered the kit directly from the site before they moved them to Adafruit) and I have had fun playing with it, but I wanted to tell people about it, and possibly make a video review. Is the "Uz" pronounced "u" as in "use" or is it "oo" as in "ooze"? Is the "e" silent or is it pronounced as a vowel sound?

Sorry if it's such a n00bish question, but I've only seen the name in print/text, and never actually heard it. There doesn't seem to be any spoken voice in the promotional "teaser" videos, either.

A review is always good for the community, so I say good idea. For the humble creator of the console, at least, "Uze" is pronounced as "You-z" not "ooze". :)

Okay, so that's "you-ze-box" ("ze" as in "zebra"), correct? That's good to know, as I've been caually mispronouncing it as "ooze-box". :p

Thanks a bunch...

It's more like Youz-box or Yooz-box...

Okay, I got it. The "e" is silent. Thanks. ;)
