Hmmm... I don't think it should be working in that way.  The definitions
should be mode-specific, so you would have to define the pronunciation
in each mode in which it should be used.  Global definitions are a
feature of the speech engine, at least that is the case for viavoice, as
I understand it.  There was a post recently concerning this.  There was
also a post by me within the last several months asking about global
definitions and, as I remember it, Dr. Ramen pointed out that this was
left out of emacspeak for a good reason, as global definitions are
generally a bad idea.

I think this is possible, but I just press "s" at the top node of the
emacspeak info file and do a search for emacspeak-pronounce.  If the
first place that you come to is not the right place, hitting s again
offers up emacspeak-pronounce as the default search term.  Hitting enter
will take you to the next instance.
