The official pronunciation guide of the USA would probably be the VOA guide.  It's simple and not sophisticated  http://bit.ly/2UcWdjG

Subject: Naïve Phonetics

Margaret Winters and I are working on a project involving naive
phonetic transcription, and are wondering whether
anyone can point us to previous work on how non-phonetically-
trained English speakers deal with conveying pronunciation
of names.

Any and all references would be appreciated.
