ཐམས་ཅད་ལ་ཕྱག་འཚལ་ལོ pronunciation

From the homage:
སངས་རྒྱས་དང་བྱང་ཆུབ་སེམས་དཔའ་ཐམས་ཅད་ལ་ཕྱག་འཚལ་ལོ
The Wylie I have is Andreas Kretschmar's from his translation of Khenpo Kunpal's commentary:

sangs-rgyas dang byang-chub-sems-dpa’ thams-cad la phyag-’tshal-lo

So I'm trying to work out the bolded and underlined pronounciation:
tham chay la chag tsal lo

with all the a's being soft German a's.
Is this correct?

Thanks!

Well, pronunciation differs per valley but

Tham is soft a
Chay is more like che
La is soft a
Chak is soft a
Tsal is a umlaut.

Transliteration is incredibly hard and dependent on who said what and what language you speak. Of course, it is still much easier than understanding anything but you get my drift.
