How to pronounce "Szász"

Hungarian is a phonetic language with an alphabet containing forty letters, many of them compounds of what would be two letters in English, for example "cs," "gy," and "ly." "Sz" is such a compound letter. It is pronounced as a sharp "s," as in "sand." The letter "á," with the accent, is pronounced as a long "a," as in "father."
