A good way to show pronunciation is to record your words on clyp.it.  Here is a demo.  No need to sign up. I used my headset recorder.  https://clyp.it/e13t4rmk    Go to http://clyp.it  , click on upload, click the yellow circle to record, click the square circle to stop, click arrow to hear, click record to keep, eventually a link appears that you can copy and paste.

For best phonetic notating there is truespel phonetics - Designed to be easy enough for US English speaking children, and applies to ESL's and adults.  Phonetics isn't difficult anymore

Of course, that pronunciation kills the "fivehead" joke - except in
(hypothetical?) dialects where "four" and "far" are homophones.
