Help Is On The Way: Pronunciation Guide for Wisconsin City, Town & County Names
"Miss Pronouncer" has come to the rescue!
The Miss Pronouncer website is described as a "resource for audio pronunciations of cities, parks, lawmakers, Indian tribes, towns, counties, villages, forests and sports figures specific to Wisconsin".  The site provides audio guides to pronunciation of all the above, plus photos, fun facts, links to tourism resources and more.
You can look up names of legislators, candidates, judges, townships, county seat locations, parks & forests, Native American casinos and more.  There are even lists of famous folks from Wisconsin on television and in film, theater, sports, music, comedy, politics, business, art and science.  This site could be considered the ultimate resource for Wisconsin trivia buffs!
In our own Apostle Islands area, I've heard tourists (and a few natives) struggle with words like "Chequamegon", "Lac Court Oreilles" and "Ashwabay".  Madeline Island visitors usually have trouble pronouncing "Equaysayway" as well! 
This website should be in everyone's "Favorites" on their laptop (or better yet, on a PDA).  It's something like Rosetta Stone for Midwesterners!
