Orca does not pronounce "Oneiric Ocelot" very well

Bug Description

Orca uses speech dispatcher and the espeak engine by default and can include pronunciation guides to get words said more correctly.
spd-say "oneiric ocelot"
sounds like "one iric oh slot" but
spd-say "on-eer-ric osselot" sounds about right, comparing to 28:15 of the UDS-O keynote http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjyNTCHVyxs

so it would be great to pre-populate the dictionary with
oneiric = on-eer-ric
ocelot = osselot
