There are several glitches with Microsoft Sam, Mike, Mary, and Anna some of which that cause them to pronounce words incorrectly. Following is a list of glitches that have been found.

Note: Many of the mispronunciations are fixed in the Speakonia version, although some new bugs appear.


Word Mispronunciations

Most famously, regardless of version, Sam cannot pronounce the word "soy" (also the spelling "soi"), but instead will make a sound "swurghf" resembling a helicopter blade (type "swah" to pronounce correctly). In Speakonia, one can aid this mispronunciation by typing "soei" or "Swoi" instead. It doesn’t happen in Mary and Mike. However, he can say it correctly if you type a z after the S. He also says it correctly if a word is placed after it that begins with L or W, such as "soy like" or "soy wheat". Sticky Keys XP has also found an accurate way to make him say it correctly in Windows XP. To do this, type "sse loi". However, he says "soil" correctly.

A

  • Aeroplane: Sam pronounces it as "Erroah plin" in the Narrator version. He says it correctly in the Speakonia version.
  • Airbus: Sam says it as "Airbess", but will say it correctly as two words. The Narrator version of Sam will say "orbis"
  • Airmaster: Microsoft Sam will say "Airmister" (but not in the Speakonia version).
  • Alex - Sam will say "awl-ex"
  • Alt: Sam will say “Allt” in the Narrator version, but the Speakonia version says it correctly.
  • Always: Sam will say "al-wez" in Speakonia
  • Anna: Sam says "inna" in the Narrator version.
  • Animax: Microsoft Sam will say "Ah-knee-macks" (but not in the Speakonia version).
  • Anime: Sam will say "Ow-nyme" in the Narrator version. He will say "anim" in Speakonia.
  • Arabic: Microsoft Sam will say "Erarbic". (This happens with the other Speakonia voices)
  • Are: Sam will say "war" Putting a second r makes him say "lar" in Speakonia.
  • Asakura: He will pronounce it "Asa kyura" sometimes. He pronounces it correctly on the Narrator version, however.
  • Auricom (as in the team of the PS1 game Wipeout): Sam can't pronounce it as one word. He'll say "or-ih-cum" in the Narrator version. To fix this problem, seperate both Auri and com so it can be pronounced correctly.
  • Australia: Microsoft Sam will say "Orfstralia".

B

  • Barack Obama - Sam will say "Bearack" and "Abama" (Says correctly if you put "Brock" and "O bomb ah")
  • Bear: Sam makes a slight tapping sound at the B in Speakonia.
  • Bedfordshire: Sam pronounces it as "Beet-ford-sheer".
  • Betamax: Sam pronounces it as "bit-tah-max." (He says it correctly if you put a dash between the 'Beta' and 'Max'.)
  • Bing: This only happens in Speakonia, where Sam pronounces it "bin"
  • Birdman: Same error as "Hammerman" example. Said as "Birdm'n"
  • Bling: This only happens in XP, where Sam says it with the first two letters said individually (B L ing) (he pronounces it correctly in the Speakonia version).
  • Bought - He will say something along the lines of "bsott"
  • Bowser: Microsoft Sam will say "Boh-zer".
  • Buses - He calls it "byoo-sis" (But not in Speakonia version)
  • Butthurt - He will say "But-thurt"

C

  • Calhoun: Sam will say "cal-hooned" in the Narrator version.
  • Candlehead: Sam will say "cand-leh-head" in the Narrator version.
  • Certificate: Sam says "certifi-Kate" (as in hate)
  • Chainsaw - He calls it "chain-soi" (But not in Speakonia version)
  • Chrome - He calls it "kraw-m"
  • Churros: Microsoft Sam will say it as "chur-iss" in the Speakonia version. To get Speakonia Sam to say it correctly, type chur rows. Speakonia Sam says the non-plural version of this word correctly and Narrator Sam will always say this word correctly.
    • Speakonia Sam also seems to say the non-plural version of this word faster, but his Narrator counterpart says this word at normal speed.
  • Citrusella Flugpucker: Sam says "sit-roosella flug-poker" in the Narrator version.
  • Cocopuffs: Microsoft Sam says "Co-cop-uffs" in the Narrator version. In Speakonia, he says it like "cow-co-pefs" instead.

  • Coke: Microsoft Sam says it like "cock" (as in cock-a-doodle-doo), (only in the SMG4 videos).
  • "Crotch" is said as "crow's nest", with the correct pronunciation realized if "krotch" or "crottch" in SAPI 5 is typed instead. This is perhaps due to a small referencing error in the pronunciation dictionary, as "crotch" and "crow's nest" are alphabetically very close. In the Speakonia version, both spellings will yield the expected word (but not in the newer versions), but if you spell it with a double "c" at the beginning, he will say it right. Interestingly, same error is made by natural (SAPI5) Microsoft Mike and Microsoft Mary. Crotches is said as "crow's nests", crotchy is "crow's nesty", and crotcher is "crow's nester."
  • Crumbelina Di Carmello: Sam will say "crumblin-uh-dee-carmeelo" in the Narrator version.
  • CTrain: Sam will say "train" in XP as one word.
  • Cumshot: Sam will say it like cum-shit if it's one word in Speakonia (pronounced correctly in XP). If you use 'cum' and 'shot as two words, he'll say it correctly.
  • Cyborg and cyber: He will pronounce them as "siborg" and "syber" in the Speakonia version. (pronounces correctly when you spell Cy borg and Cy bur)

  • Dimebag: Microsoft Sam will say "Dimma-bag" in Speakonia, but not in XP. Typing "Dime bag" in Speakonia, he says correctly.
  • Dio: Sam will say the correct (correct?) “Dye-oh” in the Narrator version, but not in Speakonia. Microsoft David will just say the letters
  • Digimon - Microsoft Sam would just say "Digimin" instead. Trying to separate them at the end of a sentence will result in Sam saying "Digimonday". This can be fixed by typing "Digi-mom".
  • Dirty: Microsoft Sam can't pronounce the D correctly if the word is followed with a previous one (such as "get dirty"). It instead makes a sharp tapping sound on the D.
  • Dixonville: Sam will say "dike-sawn-veely" in the XP version

  • "Enjoy" is pronounced correctly. However, if the next word begins with a /ð/ sound (e.g. "this", "that" "them"), then he says it as "EnjWAH" (e.g. "I enjoy the meal"). This sounds like the infamous ROFLcopter sound. Like Soy, it happens regardless of version.
  • Etcetera: Sam will say “Et-seat-uh-ruh” in the Narrator version, but not in Speakonia.

F

Other glitches and notes (#)

  • Typing in a four digit number will separate the tens (e.g. we pronounce 12:34 as "twelve thirty-four"). Anything above 5 digits and below is pronounced correctly, i.e., 54143 is pronounced "fifty-four thousand one-hundred forty-three". Four-digit numbers are pronounced correctly in Speakonia, however.
  • Typing in "0000" results in Microsoft Sam saying "hundred" (he pronounces each digit separately in Speakonia, however).
  • If a word has an apostrophe in the pronunciation, then the Speakonian version of Sam will increase the pitch.
  • If any misspelled words are in all capitals, then Sam just says the letters in the Narrator version, but not in Speakonia. If there are 2 letters on parenthesis, then Sam will say only the first letter. If Sam wants to say the word with no stress, place the “h” before many stressed words.
  • The Narrator version of Sam will speak characters according to the Best Fit table. For example, the letter e-ogonek is mapped to e, and all others are not mapped.
