From Ruby Annotation (2001-05-31) | Glossary for this source

For ideographs: Technical term; indication of possible pronunciation. Different from pronunciation in various respects: script used may not be fully phonetic; actual pronunciation is speaker-dependent; pronunciation may not be realized when reading a text silently. In Chinese or Korean, some ideographs have several readings. In Japanese, most ideographs have at least two readings, and some have a lot more. Readings also may depend on context.
