How do you pronounce Omicron? Ask Microsoft Office!

The Omicron variant is spreading across the world and so are questions about how to pronounce the word.  A simple job for Microsoft Office 365’s Read Aloud.

Just type Omicron into Word then go to Review | Read Aloud or choose the word and press Ctrl + Alt + Space … either way will start the recently improved voice and the little playback toolbar.

As you can see, omicron is recognized as a correctly spelled word, as it should because it’s a letter of the Greek alphabet (like Beta, Gamma etc)

Not Omnicron with an ‘n’

The COVID variant is not called Omnicron  – a common mispronunciation and spelling.

Omnicron is either a planet in a SF universe far, far away or an evil cyborg <g>.
