I need to insert a pronuciation guide into a script for the following Latin animal name: Pachydiscus seppenradensis.
In other words, I just need something on the script page to help the person reading it pronounce it correctly. I can't rely on special symbols or anything longwinded. Just something like is found in this question

I have terrible pronunciation. Can you direct me to dictionary-type sites that teach how to pronounce words using high-quality audio files? Merriam-Webster
has the basics and is easy to use, but I am also looking for resources that cover more specialized vocabularies such as cooking terms, medical terms, technology terms, the names of important cultural figures, place names, and product names. Obscurity/difficulty level: stuff like sambal oelek, Yulia Tymoshenko, Mies van der Rohe, SUSE, Schenectady, Elidel, Saucony. [more inside]
