The pronunciation of any word in English (or any language at all) is not Universal. This is because there are many different dialects of The English Language — both throughout America, and also world-wide. The pronunciations that are presented on GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! are based-upon a combination of both “common usage”, and the most neutral accent used in The International Common Tongue — a.k.a. “American English”.
Accepted – For this word: the “A” turns into an true-schwa; for the “cc” combination — the first “c” is hard, and the second “c” is soft (this is one of TWO standard pronunciations of this letter combination in The Common Tongue); then the “e” is short; the “p” is (often) stopped; the “t” is pronounced like the letter “d”; and since the root-word ends with the letter “t” – the “e” of the “-ed” ending turns into an i-schwa; and the final “d” is a flap-d, but is (often) stopped.
– /ək-SEH[P]-dih[d]/ – /ək.ˈsɛ[p].də(ɪ)[ɾ]/ – Notice also that the stress is on the second syllable and that the “d” ending (when not stopped) acts as a separate syllable –
