The pronunciation of "Wacom". (The tablet makers.)

Art Forum Talk about Art and writing

So, I always thought that Wacom was pronounced "WAY-com", but apparently it's pronounced "WAH-cum". Is there anyone else who pronounced it the way I did?

The way I found out was looking at a video on how to change pen nibs on Wacom's website. I guess it's kind of irrelevant, but I thought it was interesting.

Now you can correct your other artsy friends and be like, "Pshhh, and you call yourself an artist? It's WAH-cum, not WAY-com, you dunce." (At least that's how [i]I[/i] felt.)

Lol, I found out the proper pronunciation the exact same way.
I still pronounce it way-com, though. It just seems more natural to me.
