Research pronunciation please!

I truly loved the part where it describes Joni Earickson Tada dancing up to receive her reward but was dismayed to hear the reader pronounce her name as "Joanie". She herself mentions most emphatically in her book that she is named for her father and it is pronounced "Johnny". Any small amount of research would have told you the same. While it didn't detract from the power of the image and message, it did make me sad that something so easily researched wasn't. If such care is taken to pronounce places and ethnic names correctly, why couldn't this one be just as important?
Other than that, I really enjoyed his performance of this book.
