How to pronounce "content" correctly with Alexa speech synthesis

I have been trying to respond to showing some content (a noun -- content as in presentation), but Alexa kept pronouncing the word as the adjective content (happy, satisfied). Is there an easy way to tell Alexa to customize the pronunciation? Thanks.

When I try it plain, I do get content - as in presentation. Nevertheless, you can get it to pronounce it in different forms using SSML: [code] content. content. content. content. content. [/code] If you really want fine grained control, you can also use IPA to tune the pronunciation.
