    the Kamats Sound is pronounced like O at the Askenzi and also by the Yamanis
    Originally it has the sound between the A and the O something like you
    pronouce in english the name Bob.
    the Kamats is also pronouced O in the Sapharadi accent and its called
    Kamats Katan ( you didnt explain that)
    like in the word חכמה=wisdom – the ח has Kamats katan and it is pronounce
    but if you read it with Kamats Gadol (the “regular”) חכמה=(she) got smart –
    pronounced Hakhma

    The ancient Kamatz was like [o] or like the letter U in the word “Cup”, or
    the sound in the word “Tough”…

    This was done in Open Sankore. I’m not using it anymore as the video
    capture capabilities are really not so good. I’ve switched over to
    something that works better and captures everything as it happens.

    The pronounciation I’m using is modern Israeli pronounciation, and that
    includes both vowels and consonants. As an American, the Ayin is
    particularly difficult for me, so I’m not expecting any of my students to
    be able to differentiate it from an Aleph, and for practical reasons, I
    simply teach that both are silent, though of course, I know you are correct.
