Is there also a pronunciation like /ˈdvɔː(r)ʒɑːk/? That would work for the Czech composer spelled "Dvořák" but maybe the name of the keyboard is further anglicized/americanized... — Hippietrail 04:21, 14 May 2005 (UTC)

My understanding is that the composer's name has the ʒ (beige) sound, while the keyboard layout has an ɹ sound (or whatever your dialect of English does with r's). This is also discussed on the Dvorak Wikipedia talk page -- Arthaey 21:47, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
