I reckon it is probably pronounced differently in different countries.

lol, how do you say that pronunciation?

I say it ace-us, though I heard it a-soos before. Ace-us sounds better really.

It is pronounced A Soose. I have seen their television commercials ..do you think they would make commercials pronouncing their own name incorrectly?

I'm not saying it's not pronounced that way, but that I thought it was Ace-us at first, and I always still think Ace-us, it just makes more sense in my head...

Ace-us sounds better than a-soose, and that's all that matters .
