Does anyone know how to pronounce "come?"

I'm not a native speaker, but I believe these are the vowel sounds for come. The o is an open o, pronounced somewhere between aw and oh. The e is unaccented, so instead of eh, it is pronounced more like i in 'it' or even ee. You can look for text-to-speech apps or sites to check the pronunciation of words. I've seen some posted on other discussion threads.
