Because the computer has a Klingon language database in the UT and 
identified the sound {'o} as {'oH}, knowing that anything else would not 
make sense.

It's like speech recognition software: say "viyeo" and it'll type "video".

This is all just fun and theory. Don't bother. :-)

Yes, I'm sure it was a mix of both, but we don't know.

What I do know is that Okrand had prepared this following phrase for 
Into Darkness, but it was not used in the movie. It was displayed in the 
documentary "Credited as Conlangers".

{mijatsme'chogh, vaj Hegh gha'e'.}

The lower case "eye" is not a typo. In his additional pronunciation 
guide, he clearly described it as "ee".
