    "JPEG" is the full name of the standard (Joint Photographic Experts Group), but it is .jpg as a file extension.

    Either way, "jay-peg."

    I am inconsistent. Sometimes I say "jay-peg" and sometimes "jay-pee-jee".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I think the last sound here should be /dʒiː/ since it is a voiced consonant, shouldn’t be, please?

    Teachers could also use the 'like' button as a vote of agreement. I do that often if I have nothing else to add.
