English isn't my native language. I don't trust my pronunciation too much.

I don't know how to pronounce the domain name jsfiddle.net. There isn't any video about jsfiddle, so I can't learn the pronunciation.

Pronounce it as the single letters "j" and "s" and the word "fiddle": JAY - ES - FID - uhl.

@Eray Alakese: No, the pronunciation of fiddle is FID-uhl. It's a two-syllable word. –  Jimi Oke Jan 13 '11 at 16:19
    
@Jimi , like this ? : macmillandictionary.com/pronunciation/british/fiddle –  Eray Jan 13 '11 at 16:21
    
@Eray: absolutely! I was only trying to find a way to represent the pronunciation of the single letters j and s, and the word fiddle. –  Jimi Oke Jan 13 '11 at 16:22

FWIW, ‘fiddle’ is pronounced /ˈfɪd(ə)l/. The absence of the optional schwa (ə) in the second syllable is probably more frequent than its presence, allowing the /l/ to function as a syllabic consonant. –  Barrie England Nov 5 '11 at 12:19

I'd say, since the "js" is an abbreviation for Javascript in this case (assuming you meant jsfiddle.net, not .com, which is an empty domain), you would say them as separate letters, then the word: "j-s-fiddle"

/jay ess fid-uhl/
